Payday 3 is a high-octane first person co-op shooter game, set in a Hollywood-like environment, that lets players live out the fantasy of being a world-class career criminal and master the art of heisting.

Starbreeze celebrates the 10th anniversary of the iconic cooperative Payday series, first introduced with the release of Payday: The Heist in 2011.

During the 10th anniversary stream Starbreeze revealed new details on Payday 3

Payday 3 will be set in The Big Apple: New York City, a living, enormous representation of the city.

One game changer: the media is now covering the gang, their exploits...and who knows what might come from that...

Payday 3 is set several years after the events of 2, where the gang retired from their life of crime and rode off into the sunset. In the meantime, the world of Payday has transitioned into the digital age, with software giants, crypto currencies, mass surveillance and the Dark Web all playing a role in the gang's new gadgets, challenges and opportunities.

The original four characters - Dallas, Hoxton, Chains and Wolf are returning to a life of crime for Payday 3!

The team behind the upcoming mobile game, Payday Crime War, also revealed new details, including a 4v4 PvP mode and a closed beta test coming to Android devices in December.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary, Starbreeze also announced “10 Years of Payday,” a four part documentary series and livestream, celebrating Payday’s legacy and impact. The series will take a look at the past, present, and ongoing legacy of the Payday franchise.

Each episode will focus on a particular time period across the last 10 years of PAYDAY and can be viewed on the PAYDAY Anniversary Website or at this YouTube channel.

  • ‘10 Years of PAYDAY: Ep. 1 – The Origin’
  • ‘10 Years of PAYDAY: Ep. 2 – The Redemption’
  • ‘10 Years of PAYDAY: Ep. 3 – The Impact’
  • ‘10 Years of PAYDAY: Ep. 4 – The Legacy’

Payday 3 will be launched in a coordinated release on PC,  Playstation and Xbox consoles in 2023, with additional content and functionalities planned for long beyond the original release date.
