Hello heisters, we want to inform you that Denuvo is no longer in Payday 3. We look forward to seeing you in New York City! Payday 3's release is coming very close, and it's been a long time since we announced that Payday 3's release date is on the 21st of September, with Silver/Gold owners being able to Play Early starting on the 18th. However, one popular reoccurring question has been; At what time?

To best answer this question, our creative team has made us this fantastic asset with a world map, and the release times listed in several popular time zones all over the world. Check it out, for a fast glance at when you need can get in-game.

If you haven't already, get your PAYDAY 3 Pre-Order in, and we'll see you in-game next week!

Happy heisting!

Inclusion of Denuvo is always due to dumb leadership, basically wasting money on a virus that doesn't serve any purpose, just ruins the experience of paying gamers, pirates won't buy it anyways.

What is "Denuvo"?

I really think some wrapper summary is needed for press releases, most companies act like everyone knows everything about them and their products.
