Payday 3 Performed Below Expectations At Launch, Says Embracer Group

Embracer Group has revealed that Payday 3 performed below expectations to various issues that plagued the title during its launch period.

Speaking during a Q&A during Embracer’s second quarter earnings call earlier today, the company’s CEO, Lars Wingefors, revealed that Payday 3 had arrived “a bit weaker than expected. The game had a had a positive Adjusted EBIT contribution with investments recouped in the second quarter, but performed below management expectations. Starbreeze is now hard at work to improve the player experience.”

Payday 3’s first major update was released earlier this month, although the patch was delayed numerous times, much to the frustration of its player base.
