The co-op heist game Payday 2 won't be a digital-only release like its predecessor. Instead, 505 Games plans to release the game through retail stores on both Xbox 360 and PS3.

"We have a bit of a problem here at Overkill - there are just too many great ideas and none that we were really happy to throw out - so Payday 2 has become just too big to reserve release on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network alone," said Payday 2 director David Goldfarb.

In Payday: The Heist, players take on the role of masked robbers teaming up for a big score. They rob banks, hijack armored cars and more. All the while, they have to fight off whatever law enforcement stands in their way.

Payday was priced at $19.99 and shipped with six heists. GameStop currently lists Payday 2 at $39.99. Presumably this means we can expect more than six heists in the sequel. Or a lot of new features. Or both.

505 Games plans to release Payday 2 in August. Box art for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions can be found below. A PC version is also in the works, but will only be released through Steam.
