Can you play Payday 3 on Steam Deck? Deep Silver and Starbreeze Studios’ latest heist ’em-up has made its way onto multiple video game platforms. But the question for many hardcore gaming enthusiasts is, will they be able to play it on Valve’s powerful handheld console?

If you’ve been wondering about the game’s availability on the Steam Deck, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be taking a look at its playability on the bulky portable system here so you know if you can play it on the go. Before we jump in, though, we recommend checking out the Payday 3 weapons, Payday 3 skills, and the Payday 3 heist list so you can learn more about Deep Silver’s new heist-themed entry.

Is Payday 3 on Steam Deck?

Unfortunately, no. Payday 3 is not currently Steam Deck verified, meaning you won’t be able to play it on the go for now. At the time of writing, you can only play the game on current-gen consoles, including the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. However, Valve could eventually make the game compatible with their handheld system, so all hope isn’t lost just yet.

Of course, Valve’s hypothetical inclusion of the game on Steam Deck will also depend on Payday 3’s status on PC. But based on the accolades the game has gained so far, it seems well on its way to achieving commercial success. It is also worth keeping in mind, though, that most multiplayer Steam titles, like Destiny 2 and Lost Ark remain unsupported until now. With this in mind, you may need to remain patient for a long while until Valve makes Payday 3 playable on the Steam Deck.

For now, you’ll just have to do make do with playing it on PC and current-gen systems. If you want to learn more about the game, then we suggest checking out our guides on Payday 3 matchmaking issue fix, Payday 3 Denuvo, and the best laptop for Payday 3.
