Will Payday 3 be on Nintendo Switch?

Payday 3 is not coming to Nintendo Switch. As of the time of writing, there are no announced plans to release Payday 3 on any Nintendo platform.

It seems the creators have chosen to focus on other platforms, primarily the latest generation of consoles like the PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well as PC. This decision might be driven by the demand for high-performance gameplay and advanced graphic capabilities that the Nintendo Switch might struggle to deliver with Payday 3’s likely requirements.

Starbreeze Studios has not released an official statement regarding their decision to exclude the Nintendo Switch from their platform list for Payday 3. However, it doesn’t mean that all hope is lost though.
