Starbreeze Studio has come forward today and announced that Paydat 2 is already a success despite the fact that the game doesn’t come out for another week. How is this so? It is due to the number of pre-orders the game already received. According to the statement from Starbreeze Studio’s CEO
[gn_quote style=”1″]Not only have we managed to deliver a desirable product in Payday 2 but also executed a promotion that few companies of our size can. We now look forward to the royalty income that can secure the company’s development of its own IP in the future. That Payday 2 generates revenue for the company six days before the release is of course very unusual for games of this size and strengthens the long-term nature of our strategy.[/gn_quote]
Payday 2 will be released for PC on August 13, with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions coming later next week.
