PayDay 2 releases very soon for the Nintendo Switch and is one of the bigger titles releasing this Spring for the platform. It was recently discovered that the game features a good bit of content, but is a little behind in terms of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game in terms of content. Developer Starbreeze explained the situation today, and assured Switch owners that more content is coming:
“Payday 2 is releasing on Switch with content up to and including the ‘Most Wanted’ update, which is equivalent to the content released through mid-2017 on PC. PS4 and Xbox One received one additional update after that, the ‘Master Plan’ update, which released near the end of 2017. So Switch is one update behind other consoles, which are slightly behind PC.
The reasoning for the Switch content: we’re making continuous updates to a game that’s turning 5 years old this year, and to get the game out in early 2018 on Switch meant that our team had to go with the content ported and available at the time of console submission. The PS4 and Xbox One versions are now almost up to par with PC content, and Switch is close behind those versions. There are future content updates planned for Switch, as well.”
Seems like a reasonable explanation to me. Let’s hope they stay true to their word!
