Payday 3’s highly-anticipated launch was marred by devastating server issues that kept players out of the game for most of its launch weekend. In the days following, matchmaking issues would periodically pop up, warranting multiple apologies from developer Starbreeze Studios. With the latest maintenance, the developer says the issues causing all of Payday 3’s server and matchmaking errors have been fixed, and provided a roadmap for upcoming updates and DLC.

Starbreeze Studios published an update on its website today to provide the latest info on its ongoing mission to stabilize the Payday 3 servers. “The scheduled maintenance carried out last week has fixed the initial matchmaking issues that occurred during Payday 3's first few days after launch,” the post reads. With the glaring issues resolved, Stabreeze will soon turn its attention to “commercial activities” surrounding the game, revealing its content roadmap for the next few months.
