Payday: The Heist due next week

Sony has at last confirmed a release date for downloadable multiplayer shooter Payday: The Heist.

The game, developed by Overkill Software and to be published by Sony Online Entertainment, will be released on PlayStation Store next Wednesday, November 2 – the same day as the biggest PS3 game of the year, Uncharted 3, hits shelves.

Payday: The Heist launched in North America last week, and had already been delayed from its original release date of October 5. The game will be a free download to those who bought all four games in the recent PSN Play promotion.
