Payday 3 editions are purely speculative, but it's fun to consider what could be.

Payday 3 Editions: Are There Any?

Payday 3 has been confirmed for a 2023 release, with many players wondering what different editions of the games could be released. While the game is still in development, as we get closer to the release window, there is sure to be more information on what editions of Payday 3 are to be available.

Back in March 2021, Payday series developer Starbreeze studio signed a €50 million deal with Koch Media to see Payday 3 through. It seems the culmination of this deal has now taken the form of the newly announced game publisher called Prime Matter.

With Prime Matter, Starbreeze is sure to bring a slew of different editions to the release of Payday 3. The go-to "deluxe" (or different more aptly named) edition is sure to be a thing, as players of Payday and just about any game love cosmetics, something Payday 3 will for sure continue on from Payday 2.

In terms of editions, Payday 3 may also include editions specific for PC or console releases, to increase the rarity in certain items. Payday 2 with something like the "Crimewave" edition bundled all existing DLC together, another type of edition Payday 3 can release once some robust content DLC comes out for Payday 3.

It will be interesting to see the direction Payday 3 decides to go, and the future of the series has never looked brighter!
