Payday 2 Exclusive Character "Joy" on Nintendo Switch

As we got the news of Payday 2 of Overkill Studios is coming to Nintendo Switch with the announcement for Nintendo Direct mini and we are only a month away from getting our hands on the game for Switch. It was also revealed that there will be an exclusive new character who will be introduced in the Nintendo Switch version of the game as a new gang member for a certain time and recently, some lights are shed on that too.

A trailer is released from Nintendo featuring the new character named Joy and the video gives a brief peak into her life.




Joy is described as a “Japanese computer whiz" in the promos, who is the newest addition to the gang and she is a hacker, which makes her a unique asset to the team in a heist. Just because she is a hacker doesn't mean that she will be busy with the computers to help her infamous teammates of the gang. Joy got her own hacker perks and weapons to carry around; she will come in handy in times of need. Her face is yet to be revealed as it is always seen covered with her very own changing LED mask.

All we know for now is that, Joy will be arriving in the Switch version of Payday 2 as a limited time exclusive character and that makes her the star of the release. Although not much of the personality of her character is unveiled yet, we have a feeling that we will get to know Joy a little better when she will be introduced on other ports as well after a certain period of time. It's now only a matter of time and the duration of that depends on how long she remains an exclusive to Switch.

Payday 3 Confirmed

Back in 2015, there was a strike of the team of Steam moderators for Payday 2 regarding its controversial microtransaction system despite previous assurance from developer Overkill Studios of never using them. The issue was later sorted when the studio arranged random drops of those items for concurrent Payday 2 players because it gave birth to a small outrage against Overkill. They even tried to justify their action by explaining that the earning will help them support the multiplayer of the game until 2017.

Most recently, Swedish publisher Starbreeze Studios have fully gotten their hands on the rights of Payday game franchise after paying up a good $30 million for it.

As part of the announcement, Starbreeze also confirmed working on Payday 3 already, which was a great news for this popular crime game series.

Starbreeze Studios now has the complete rights to this popular heist adventure franchise of Payday and the development of any upcoming sequels in the future and marketing of it. This also includes mobile versions of Payday and Payday 2. Effective from May 1, Starbreeze will collect full revenue for Payday 2 on Steam.

For console versions of the game, they will split the profits with the original publisher of Payday 2, 505 Games just as before. Plus, a 33 percent revenue share from the future sales of Payday 3 will be received by 505 Games excluding all the development and marketing costs when it eventually comes out in the market and this is the extent of details we currently know about the sequel so far. We don't even have an approximate release date to begin with but we can only hope that we will get one very soon.
