Payday 3 Revealed, Being Developed Using Unreal Engine

Still no ETA, but we'll hope for more news soon.

Payday 3, the next instalment in the popular heist series, has been unveiled.

We'd say revealed, but the game was actually announced in 2019, and it's a bit of a miracle that it's even coming at all. 

In 2018, Starbreeze filed for bankruptcy, but the team managed to add more content to Payday 2 last year - despite the game launching in 2013.

Payday 3 Will Be Developed In Unreal Engine

In a tweet from the series' official Twitter page, the game was confirmed to be in the design phase with a "TBA" release date.

Check out the tweet below:

The game is also in development on Epic's Unreal Engine, which offers a flexible toolkit for developers.

Of course, whether that's Unreal Engine 4 or the all-singing, all-dancing Unreal Engine 5 seen in a PS5 tech demo remains to be seen.

The developers had previously suggested that the franchise could look to launch in 2023, putting it slap-bang in the middle of the new console generation.

So, expect to be loading up your weapons and drilling equipment to rob banks, stores, and anything else you can find cash in.

For what it's worth, I recently picked up the second Payday game on sale, and it's excellent (and tense).
