Payday 3 struck PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and COMPUTER on September 21. We appreciated the game around launch, offering it an 8 out of 10 in the Game Informer Payday 3 review. More than 3 million people played Payday 3 in its first month, yet the game still stopped working to fulfill the assumptions of the workshop.
