Payday 2 Out This Summer on the PlayStation Network

A sequel to the 2011 PSN title Payday: The Heist, Payday 2, is in development at Starbreeze Studios, with 505 Games handling publishing duties, and you can expect it to release on the PSN this summer. The four characters in the original game – Dallas, Hoxton, Wolf and Chains – all return for this outing, which finds them in Washington, D.C. to start an “epic crime spree.”

Increasing the amount of missions to 30 in Payday 2 , you will see a new feature introduced called CRIMENET, which allows you to pick and choose from available jobs, becoming more varied and exciting as you progress through the game. In addition, you’ll also be able to choose your profession from four options – the Mastermind, the Enforcer, the Ghost, and the Technician – with customization options for each.

We’ll have more information about Payday 2 as summer grows closer, but hopefully this short teaser trailer can hold you over:
