UPDATE 11/6/23: Those Payday 3 leaks were right! Starbreeze Studios has confirmed its long-awaited co-op heist sequel will be launching for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via Steam and the Epic Store on 21st September - and as a day one Game Pass title.

Payday 3's release date confirmation during the Xbox Showcase was accompanied by a first look at the game in action - so enjoy a taste of its spruced-up heisting below.

ORIGINALY STORY 7/6/23: Payday 3 looks set to arrive on 21st September, according to a new launch date which has leaked online.

The release date for Starbreeze's heist shooter sequel was spotted by Aggiornamenti Lumia, a Twitter account which regularly surfaces listings on the Microsoft Store before they are publicly visible.

It's interesting timing for a Payday 3 launch date to appear - just a day before Summer Games Fest 2023 kicks off in earnest with an announcement-filled livestream. Other events from Xbox, Ubisoft and Capcom are also set to follow in the coming days.

Payday 3 will be set in a "living, enormous representation" of New York City, Starbreeze said back in 2021.

Set several years after Payday 2, this follow-up will see the gang brought out of retirement in a changed world - one with "cryptocurrencies, mass surveillance and the Dark Web all playing a role".

It's been a long wait for Payday 3, after a decade of Payday 2 post-launch support and no shortage of trouble for Starbreeze itself.

Here's hoping we get this date locked down for definite as soon as possible.
