Now, the studio has created a new team of veteran devs to turn the game into a worthy sequel, per the latest official update in a blog post.
In order to turn your feedback into action, we’ve put together a strike team of veteran developers from the design, community, communication and production teams with the focus on bringing PAYDAY 3 up to where it will meet your expectations,” reads the announcement.
The veteran group is full of several talented individuals who likely carry the experience from Payday 2. As a result, we can expect all of the player feedback to be taken into account, considering the transparency of the studio with the player base so far. The blog post by the devs also emphasizes that they are “well aware” that fans are unsatisfied with the game and appreciate them for the feedback.
We’re well aware that many of you aren’t satisfied with the game the way it is in its current state. Since launch, we’ve been reading your valuable feedback in forums, social media and in video comments in addition to the FeatureUpvote page. This helps us massively and is crucial to the continued development of PAYDAY 3.”
The new veteran team of devs will allow the initial plans to be realized much faster and more efficiently. The report mentions that the new team is already “creating a plan” to precisely decide the steps that will “shape the game into the heisting experience” we have wanted from a PAYDAY sequel for the future. The studio also went as far as to share a detailed schedule for the players, which will likely be revised and acted upon.

The title was hailed for engaging gunfights, in-depth customization, improved visuals, and a fun gameplay loop. However, it received criticism for a lack of QoL features, a grind-heavy approach, and lousy AI.
