I am sure some of you have realized that your pre-ordered copies of Payday 2 are not yet available. And that is no different for anyone hoping to run out and grab a copy in the next few days. Simply put Payday 2 was delayed. It isn’t available. And the once KNOWN release date, August 13th 2013, has been change to no known release date.
Why it was delayed is not specifically known but it appears to be some confusion between retailers and 505 Games. Retailers have been taking pre-orders for a while now and were letting consumers know Payday 2 would be ready for them to pick up today, but that just isn’t so. According to 505 Games that date, August 13th, is a shipping date and not the actual street date.
So when can you expect to get your copy of Payday 2? Well since it was just shipped out today you can expect anywhere from 3-4 days for it to fully be distributed.
If you simply can’t wait you will be happy to know that this isn’t the problem when it comes to digital purchases. If you can’t wait the 3-4 days for delivery you can get a copy on Steam now.
