Server issues Payday 3 have been fixed, according to developer Starbreeze.
Starbreeze attributed the issue to the game’s third-party matchmaking software, which it claims “encountered an unforeseen error, which rendered it unable to handle the massive influx of players.”
However, in a new update, the studio states that it has already carried out maintenance that “fixed the initial matchmatching issues” that occurred during the game’s launch. According to the developer, “matchmaking has remained stable and performed well after maintenance was completed.”
In a statement, Starbreeze CEO Tobias Sjögren added: “Firstly, I would like to thank our players for the patience they have shown us. Our community is the engine that drives our games and our company. I really don’t need to repeat that this wasn’t the start we wanted, but at the same time, our business model is a marathon not a sprint and we will continue to tirelessly build Payday 3 bigger and better to deliver the best possible value to our players.”
Starbreeze states that it will “now intensify commercial activities around Payday 3, after partially pausing them during the previous week.” The company is also planning the game’s first update early this month, which it says will include “over 200 quality of life improvements for all platforms.”
