PayDay 2 was released on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One back in June to severely broken matchmaking on Xbox One.
Overkill Producer, Almir Listo has apologised for the state of the game and has confirmed that an overhaul of the matchmaking system is in development.
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.
On Reddit, Listo also apologised for the lack of communication around the console versions while the PC version gets frequent updates and communication from the studio.
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
Overkill is also planning on providing PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players with all the content the PC version has in future updates, the release plan of how that content will be released is still unknown.
