PayDay: The Heist dated for U.S.

Cooperative first-person-shooter PayDay: The Heist has been given a final release date in North America. After the downloadable title was delayed earlier this month, SOE Executive Director of Business Development, Chris Sturr, was happy to make the announcement that PayDay will be released on October 18, 2011.

In a post on the PlayStation Blog, Sturr said, "We can’t wait for the launch of this highly anticipated game and are even more excited for players and fans to finally enjoy PayDay: The Heist together online."

PayDay: The Heist will be available for $19.99 from the PlayStation Store. In regards to a European release, Sturr said that they are yet to finalize a release date.

Sturr wrote "The EU product, due to the amount of localized text for French, German, Italian and Spanish is requiring just a bit longer. Thank you for your patience and continued support."
