Today, the third installment of the popular Payday was released. However, the joyous event was shadowed by several reports of matchmaking issues, marring what was supposed to be a triumphant return for the beloved heist game.
Players reported difficulties accessing the game’s online functionalities early in the day. The issues seem to revolve mainly around the matchmaking process, with many players unable to find and join games.
In response, the game’s official Twitter handle @PAYDAYGame tweeted, “Heisters, we’re currently experiencing slow matchmaking. We’re investigating and working on a solution.” A later update informed fans that matchmaking was temporarily unavailable but assured them that the team was diligently working on identifying and resolving the root cause.
Matchmaking is still unavailable, the team is hard at work with identifying and resolving this. Stay tuned for more updates!
