PAYDAY: Crime War will shut down next month, may return in the future

Back in 2018, I went hands-on with the 180906.1826 build of PAYDAY: Crime War, a first-person shooter that at the time suffered from lackluster controls and uneven matchmaking. This past August, the game was released in the US as a limited beta, and I guess things have not been working out in the last three months since the developer has announced that PAYDAY: Crime War will be shut down on December 16, 2019.

PAYDAY: Crime War limited beta access live in the US, soft-launched in further regions

It's been a while since PAYDAY: Crime War popped up on my radar. Back in September of 2018, I went hands-on with the title.

PAYDAY: Crime War hands-on: A solid online shooter hobbled by poor controls and uneven matchmaking

PAYDAY: Crime War is a new first-person shooter for Android that recently entered into a closed beta on September 10th, and it runs until October 14th. Unlike Payday 2, you can now play as cops and robbers, which is an interesting twist. The idea is that teams of fours cops face get to off against teams of four robbers, and it works out well. Of course, this is still a Payday title, so you can also expect plenty of loot to collect, equip, and upgrade, along with a ranked mode for those that take their mobile shooters seriously. It's Payday in your pocket, and it's coming soon to Android.
