The recently announced Payday 2: Crimewave Edition will continue to be updated with free content and paid DLC, according to Almir Listo, the game's producer. Listo states that Overkill is looking to update the PS4 and Xbox One versions with new content just as it does on PC.
"We're basically saying here's the full experience, that will continue to be updated with free content and paid DLC as we go along, but this is what Payday 2 is at this day and age," said Listo.
"It's the ultimate heisting experience on the consoles according to us, and it's all the original stuff from Payday 2, the huge amount of DLCs and also some cool exclusive content that we'll announce soon, you know, just like the other versions of the game we've released some exclusive content where each platform gets their own exclusive map and so on. It's definitely not a definitive edition, it is just the start of a beautiful relationship we want to have with Xbox One and PS4 gamers.
"We hope, of course, that as many [last-gen players] as possible transition to the new generation so they can experience this content, but the ambition is to continue updating the Crimewave Edition, seeing as we have these improved settings, improved machines, improved working environments for us as developers to continue adding stuff to the game that the console manufacturers actually listen to, which is great.
"So our ambition is to continue pushing Payday stuff out on the next-gen versions. And the same goes for the PC version. We've already told the community that we're committing to making Payday content up until the end of 2016. And that's a long commitment, especially for a first-person shooter."
Payday 2: Crimewave Edition releases in June for PS4 and Xbox One. Players that pre-order the digital version of the game will receive a 25% discount and the Hard Time Loot Bag.
