The developer that brought us games such as Syndicate and The Darkness has joined forces with Overkill Software. Starbreeze Studios is in the process of acquiring Overkill Software for an undisclosed price. Once the shareholders for Starbreeze sign off on the deal, it will be official.

Payday: The Heist will continue to be supported even after the acquisition is finalized.

“All the DLC that we’ve planned on releasing will be released,” Overkill wrote on its Twitter page. “Payday 2 is just in the planning phase.”

That’s right, a sequel to the team-based multiplayer heist game just may happen. With the extra resources behind it, we expect the follow-up to Payday: The Heist to be significantly better than its predecessor.
