Overkill Software was the original developer for PayDay 2 in 2013. It was thought that they handled the port for the Nintendo Switch version of the game. This seems not to be the case. In the final credits of the game, there is an image that states that, in fact, Sumo Digital developed PayDay2 for Nintendo’s hit console. Could this be the reason for the issues with the game and lack of content? One can only wonder.

Sumo Digital Developed PayDay 2 for Switch

PayDay2 was looked forward to by a number of fans but was a massive disappointment. Starbreeze, the developers behind the original version, has promised updates to add more content to the game. Is this to rectify the mistakes of Sumo? Who knows at this point. Thankfully, the Nintendo Switch has plenty of great ports on the system which have received wonderful support by their developers. Just recently, DOOM released an update which fixed a number of issues and we actually adjusted our review score for the game because of it. It’s unfortunate that PayDay 2 didn’t turn out the way people had hoped for, but hopefully Starbreeze can rectify this utter mess.

Sumo Digital is also responsible for developing games such as Snake Pass, which was released on the Switch last year, and several Sonic racing games.
