We know the Payday 3 servers are struggling, but Starbreeze Studios has confirmed that it's next Payday 3 update is coming, it's just little over a week away.

Payday 3 next update October: an image of a man with a gun and a sad emoji

If you’re trying to play Starbreeze Studios’ Payday 3, but you’re having issues with more than just the game’s servers, you’ll be pleased to know that the next Payday 3 update is on the way very soon. However, this is a little later than expected due to the game’s severe server struggles.

Updating the Payday 3 fanbase via Twitch, Starbreeze Studios’ global brand director Almir Listo and lead producer Andreas Penninger reveal that the next major Payday 3 update will be coming on October 5. The aim of this one is “solving a bunch of bugs”, Penninger explains. We know this isn’t quite one of the best FPS games out there right now, but it’s a lot of fun and we’re looking forward to the improvements this update will make.

Patch notes for this update will be dropping ahead of time, but we wouldn’t expect to see them until the day of the update. Especially if the Payday 3 server down issues continue to cause chaos for players – and potential players. Penninger also highlights, as you can see below from around 18:50 mark, that a second update is coming late October.

Whether that will improve the best Payday 3 weapons, or tweak the best Payday 3 skills, only time will tell. What we do know is that Starbreeze Studios is aiming to introduce a Transporter skill line – something series veterans will recognize from the older games – that will improve bag throwing and the movement penalty holding a bag causes.

If you’re not sure about this shooter, but you want to give it a go, you can actually play it on Xbox Game Pass right now.
