Are the Payday 3 servers down?

At this moment in time, many players are unable to access Payday 3, specifically the online matchmaking system.

These issues have been recognized by the developers, At approximately 7.30 pm GMT, the developers stated, via Twitter, that they were "working on the current matchmaking service outage" and were hoping to have the issues resolved soon.

Those issues remain however, and seem to be getting worse.

These issues appear to be affecting users on all platforms.

Unfortunately, If you are experiencing these issues, the only thing you can do is wait, and take some solace in the fact that the dev team is actively working on them.

You can keep an eye out on the official Payday Twitter account for updates.

Nebula Login Issue

One known issue during the Payday 3 Beta was the message - “Nebula data error. Failed to fetch game config data.” Over on Steam, a solution has been posted that gives players the advice to log in with their Nebula accounts without linking to Steam, followed by a restart of the game. Keep this information at hand if it returns during the full launch.

Linking your Steam account after logging in using this method has proved successful if you are struggling to get Payday 3 beta loaded, although this isn't 100% guaranteed to work.
