Starbreeze Studios has said that it’s waiting for permission from Nintendo in order to be able to use the VOIP app for Payday 2.
According to a Kotaku report, Payday 2 will be able to use the Nintendo Switch Online APP to get voice chat in the game, once it has permission.
It’s important in a game like Payday 2 which requires a lot of communication due to the co-op play at the heart of its heists.
A spokesperson from Starbreeze sent an E-mail to Kotaku saying, “We are waiting to be able to participate in Nintendo’s VOIP app solution. As soon as we are given the go-ahead, this is definitely on our list to look into to update.”
Nintendo’s consoles have never included voice chat functionality for players while in-game. With the Switch, the companion app enables players to use voice chat for games that are compatible with it. At the moment, however, the only game that’s compatible is Splatoon 2.
Starbreeze meanwhile has suggested that players use the official Discord server in order to get voice chat up-and-running during heists.
