Left 4 Dead, Payday: The Heist cross-over in the works

Something’s cooking between Overkill and Valve; the former’s game director Ulf Andersson has announced that their Payday: The Heist will be blending with Left 4 Dead in some form.

“As perceptive gamers will have noticed, several hints have recently been dropped into PAYDAY The Heist, which has led to various rumors,” he wrote on the studio’s official site.

“We are excited to be able to confirm that an in-depth collaboration between OVERKILL and Valve is currently in production.

“We are working on a very cool blend of PAYDAY and Left 4 Dead. I am sure it is so exciting that it will have some players check into the hospital before we are done.”

As far as more details go, Andersson stops just short of giving any. And so we wait.

Overkill was recently purchased by Riddick and Syndicate developer Starbreeze. More on that here.
