Heist shooter Payday 2 will crack open on Nintendo Switch early next year - on 23rd February in the UK.

North America will get the game just a few days later on 27th February, meanwhile.

Payday 2 will be getting a digital and physical launch - prices for which are still to be confirmed. There's no word yet on exactly what content will be included.

We've known the shooter was headed to Switch since this spring, when it was given a vague "winter" launch date. Is late February still winter? I suppose so.

Payday 2 first launched all the way back in 2013 for PC and has since received more than 150 updates - both free and paid - with extra missions, characters and lots and lots of creepy masks.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
