Payday 2 developers say Switch version is 'unlikely to see further updates'

The heist of the century

Looks like we can consider Payday 2 on Switch pretty much done and dusted. The game has been out for awhile now, but don't expect any new content or updates that are hitting other versions of the game. Wondering why the team has decided to abandon Switch players? Check out their statement on the matter below.

We’re very sad to announce that PAYDAY 2 for Nintendo Switch will be very unlikely to see further updates, despite what our initial ambitions were on the contrary. As per above, we’ve been forced to make many hard decisions along the road, and this is yet another. To put the Switch version separately into context, the transfer of the game over to the Switch-platform was not made in-house and would require significant further investments to happen. We are very aware that this was undesired news, but we’d rather be clear to set the expectations now.
