Overkill Software, the developers of Payday 2, have been under a lot of scrutiny recently. Mainly via their fans over the microtransactions that have been taking place, even though the company noted that it wouldn’t happen.
To atone for all the distress, Overkill issued an official apology on their Steam page:
“The past few weeks have been some of the most challenging in the history of this community. Players have been angry with us, media have written about us en masse and our volunteer moderators went on strike. For all the distress we’ve caused the past few weeks, I’d just like to take the time and say that we’re sorry. We’ve done a lot of things right in the past, but these past few weeks we screwed up.
We need to get better at many things, and we will do our best to improve as soon as possible.”
They do note though that they are still aiming to improve Payday 2 on every level they can.
“Our main goal is to try to find a way to reduce or remove the random elements of the final reward, whatever that reward will be,” said Listo. “Regarding stat boosts, Ashley and Jones suggested that we introduce something similar to StatTrak as part of future safes, a feature used in CS:GO in their cases.”
