Payday/John Wick - Timeline

They said they want Die Hard, Batman and John Wick (again). I can handle that, lol.
Wew, I do wonder how a Nakatomi Plaza heist would go. And I wouldn't be surprised if there was a game mode which let four players attempt to pull off a heist and a fifth player playing Batman and having to stop them.
 
Their idea (it isn't confirmed, it's just want they'd do if they had the choice of anything) would be that instead of getting bombarded with enemies in Gotham, eventually the Bat-Signal is lit and Batman will show up and literally down everyone in 20 seconds, lol.

They also want a heist set in a Continental hotel.
 
I know they said that the Scarface in the game is an impersonator, but there's a comic book sequel that explains that Tony survived. Unlike the video game, it's not an alternate timeline and it plays out the exact same as the film. I think that that fits into the canon here honestly.

Literally every crossover character in Payday is a dead guy who's not actually dead, I swear. John Wick is dead (not really), Tony Montana is dead (not really), Jimmy is dead multiple times (but not really), Jacket is dead (but now he's a cosplayer), Bodhi is dead (but not really), I mean, Jesus. When I die will I join the Payday gang!?

Wait, Batman????? So bank robbery in Gotham ahahahah.

Anyway if you really want you can looooooosely connect this to the Arkhamverse, since in Arkham origins, joker's thugs wear some of the main peyday's masks.
 
It was just something they wanted to do. I assume it would just be a Payday variant of Batman anyway, but that's not really happening.

1. Thank you, I appreciate it!

2. Yes, but it's a divergent timeline where he kills the guy behind him during the climax, preventing his apparent "death".
 
Tony looks good for a 70 year old dead guy, or that's a shockingly good impersonator.

Yep. I'm taking the comic book sequel as canon since it doesn't actually change any on-screen events, and the video game as a divergent timeline where Tony doesn't almost get killed.

What are these based off of, by the way? It might drastically change the timeline if accurate, since Charon would be alive in 2017. Not a big deal, I can move Chapter 4 to 2021 (the Continental working with Wick and the crew is definitely weird), but yeah.

oh, the only 1-2 times they reference a date in-game, some text and the tapes. for the passage of time, the payday files and these 2 documents:



 
I agree with this theory, although I think Bodhi just started a second list and he completed his first Ozaki 8 when he managed to survive the wave at the end of the movie. Realistically he would have died, but luckily there's no body. I think Payday 2 is supposed to be a sequel to Point Break.

Edit: Nevermind. "FBI Academy 2015", "October 13", "last 30th was a friday" (matches October 2015), hmm... the Bodhi briefing video mentions events from Point Break so at least the main events take place before the crossover heists.

Two possibilities:
1. We follow the movie's timeline and place the ending in April 2016, and assume that Bodhi survived the wave then returned to the gang.

2. We ignore the 17 months later (Homecoming situation) and place the end of the film in 2018-2019, with the assumption that Bodhi died. It is mentioned in the movie that a wave that size could take years to show up again, which means it isn't unlikely that the gap would be longer.

The Rumors and Stories text crawl after completing the secret ending suggests Payday 2 is a John Wick prequel, but the problem storywise is that John can mention his deceased dog in the game, and during Hoxton's Breakout, Hoxton has a chance to ask how Wick's family has been doing, then asks if he'd just said something bad once John gives him an awkward silence. He also has scars from the first film in the game, but I'm already ignoring them as it is.

Point is, if I absolutely have to, I can move John Wick 1-3 to 2023+, although that is very contradictory to the rest of the evidence. It might have been an attempt at fixing John's relationship with the Continental during Payday 2 since they're not trying to kill him.

Also, Payday reference in John Wick: Chapter 2. It's seemingly a two-way canon in any case.

I've got Payday 3, so I'll see the timeline of that after Hardcore Henry.
