Max Payne fans, this year just might be YOUR year! While we are still on the first quarter, Rockstar has already released some news that many of you have been waiting for. If reports are to be believed, Max Payne 3 might be out in the winter of this year ““ a mere several months away!
Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO: 8.61, 0, 0%), is proud to announce that Max Payne 3 is currently in development and scheduled for a winter 2009 release on the Xbox 360(R: 28.06, 0, 0%) video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION(R: 28.06, 0, 0%)3 computer entertainment system and PC. Developed by Rockstar Vancouver, Max Payne 3 tells the story of a retired police detective embroiled in a world of corruption, turmoil and intense violence.
Of course, we all know that a game being in development and a game actually being released are two different things. Then again, this is Rockstar, and not Sony. Don’t get me wrong, I love Sony but they are so notorious about not getting things done on time.
Anyhow, what are we to expect from Max Payne 3? The same story tells us:
“We’re starting a new chapter of Max’s life with this game,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “This is Max as we’ve never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever. We experience the downward spiral of his life after the events of Max Payne 2 and witness his last chance for salvation.”
Since leaving the NYPD and New York itself behind, Max has drifted from bad to worse. Double-crossed and a long way from home, Max is now trapped in a city full of violence and bloodshed, using his weapons and instincts in a desperate search for the truth and a way out.
More cynical? Bad to worse? Oh, this is going to be GOOD.
