Overkill has assured fans that matchmaking issues affecting Payday 2 on the Xbox One will be fixed by the end of 2015. Producer Almir Listo has apologised fans in a video update and on Reddit, and promises that the game will start to get updates on a more regular basis.

"We want to apologize for our lack of communication with the status on both platforms (Xbox 1 and PS4). You deserve to get updates on a more regular basis, and we understand it's frustrating to see the PC version of the game getting update after update while you wait to know what's going on," said Listo on Reddit.

"We are working on improving the way we communicate to you regarding future content. Our ambition is to give you more updates like this, be it weekly or biweekly. Even though some weeks might be slower than others and not contain any important news, we still want to keep you posted and make sure you know that we're still working on everything and haven't stopped supporting either of the platforms."

"We are currently working on a radical change - a full remake of the matchmaking system which will simplify the way you join games and improve the matchmaking. This is a solution that is built from the ground up, as the previous matchmaking system we have for PS4 and PC doesn't work well with your platform. Right now this is our number one priority. Our ambition is to go live with the new matchmaking system and additional fixes within the coming weeks, and no later than the end of the year. Does that mean that we want to release it on 31st of December? Absolutely not, we want to get it done ASAP."

Before finishing, Listo adds that PS4 and Xbox One players will get all the content released for the PC version in future updates, but when will these updates be released remains unknown.
