Yesterday, PAYDAY 3 officially launched in global Early Access at 17.00 CEST. During its first 18 hours, close to 150,000 unique players (DAU) began planning and executing the perfect heists together with their friends.

Several hundreds of thousands of heists were performed in both Loud and Stealth by players, with “No Rest for the Wicked” in Loud being the most popular heist. In total, close to 150,000 unique players (DAU) across Early Access platforms, excluding Playstation®5, played the game. Starbreeze Nebula currently stands at over 1.6 million registered users.

The Starbreeze Nebula website experienced a brief outage once initial traffic overwhelmed the server, an issue that was resolved within minutes. Several minor improvements for server performance and matchmaking were rolled out during the first day to ensure player experience. An issue persisted for Sony Playstation®5, which was resolved by Sony early Tuesday local time.

Starbreeze Entertainment looks forward to welcoming more heisters from around the world as the game launches officially on Thursday, September 21st, Day-1 on Xbox Game Pass, on Xbox Series X|S, Playstation®5, Epic Games Store, Steam® and GeForce NOW. Pre-order PAYDAY 3 here!
