Overkill Releases The First Payday 3 Trailer With the Announcement of The Launch Window

As 2023 kicked in (for most of the world), Overkill Software decided it wanted to be the first word out of everyone’s mouths in the new year. The developer published a short, 24-second Payday 3 trailer on YouTube that officially revealed the game’s logo, setting, and launch window.

Admittedly, there’s little to take away from the clip, and we’ve known that Payday 3 has been developing for quite a while. However, this marks the first teaser trailer for a highly anticipated game. It was way back in 2013 that Payday 2 launched, and heist-loving gamers are hungry for more.

So, it’s no longer a ‘narrowed-down’ launch window, as Overkill stated that Payday 3 would release in ‘2023’. Aside from an invitation that allowed players to wishlist the game on Steam, nothing more was said. Here’s the trailer for reference:

We can glean from the Payday 3 trailer that the game appears to occur in New York City. There’s a team of four, equipped with what looks like heist equipment, gazing over the East River as fireworks erupt in the distance. It could mean something, or, more likely, it’s Overkill’s way of ushering in the new year.

There’s a little more information waiting to be found on Steam. On the PC-centric platform, Overkill went as far as to provide a full description of the game:

The eagerly anticipated follow-up to one of the best well-liked co-op shooters is called PAYDAY 3. PAYDAY players have been savoring the thrill of a flawlessly planned and executed heist since the game’s release. That is what distinguishes PAYDAY as a fast-paced, unequal co-op FPS experience. Return to the criminal underworld in the Payday Gang’s shoes. They are the envy of their peers and the bane of law enforcement everywhere they go. The crew came together once more to address the threat that had roused them from their early retirement years after their reign of terror over Washington and DC had ended.

It’s worth keeping an eye on this one, as Payday 2 certainly was a no-holds-barred criminal romp that satisfied many gamers looking to explore the urge to obtain a five-finger discount without breaking the law. Does that sound weird?
