Don't expect Payday 3 to be released until at least 2022

Starbreeze announced in its latest corporate report Payday 3 is still a ways off.

The company stated in the report that Payday 3 is expected to be released sometime during the 2022-2023 period.

While that seems a ways off, it's almost 2020 already. Where the hell has the time gone?

Payday 3 was announced in 2016 along with the news Overkill transferred transferred rights to the Payday series back to Starbreeze. 

Development of the title formally kicked off in 2017.

It was also noted in the corporate report that due to the ongoing company reconstruction, Starbreeze will be split into two companies: the new Starbreeze Publishing and Starbreeze Studios.

All IP rights and the majority of assets have been transferred to the new Starbreeze Publishing.
