Next Installment in the Payday Franchise May Allow You to Play as Cops

Payday 2 director David Goldfarb has revealed that a future installment in the franchise may include competitive multiplayer modes.

Goldfarb stated that the team had considered a competitive mode for Payday 2 which would allow players to take on the role of cops. ”The one thing, without going into too much detail, is we made a lot of decisions on this game that were ambitious and risky, and one of the reasons that we were able to get it out on time and make it generally a good game is that we didn’t entertain a lot of stuff that was outside of our core focus, and the core focus is not versus,” he told Rock Paper Shotgun.

“The core focus is co-op. So when we revisit whatever we’re going to do for the next one maybe that’ll change. When you make a versus game it puts you in a different place, and then your attention is kind of split.

“It was good that we kept our focus and enabled us to finish this game. Now I’m not going say we would never consider it, but that’s what we did on this one.”
