Overkill is ‘upset’ about dropping support for Payday 2 on PS3 and 360

Payday 2 developer Overkill has said that it is upset about having to withdraw support for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of online shooter Payday 2.

The move was announced back in February but was somewhat overshadowed by the announcement of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game.

We wish we could provide more updates. For a long time, we've been looking at how we could add more updates from a technical standpoint. Sadly, we now understand that it's impossible to continue doing so,” it said at the time.

We are confident that we have done everything we could cramming as much content we possibly could on both of the platforms. There are several technical reason as to why. For one, please understand that from a technical perspective, some of these consoles are almost a decade old.

For those of you who play Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 and have been looking forward to new updates, you'll be pissed when you hear this. We hate this too, because there's nothing we can do about it.”

Overkill is echoing these sentiments on Twitter, too, especially as there is no way to transfer save data between old and current machines.

Payday has also been criticised recently for a prolonged period of downtime on Xbox One, with many players reportedly having been unable to get the game online since its launch in mid June.
