News: The grittiest detective in gaming is coming to the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this Winter.
After years of rumors, Rockstar Games has announced that Max Payne 3 will be released on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this Winter. The game will be developed by Rockstar Vancouver (the team behind Bully) as Max Payne's original developer, Remedy, is hard at work on Alan Wake.
Rockstar did not reveal much about the game, except that the third game in the series will retain the classic feel of the franchise so far (Translation: Max Payne 3 will be like a film noir with bullet time). Rockstar also revealed that the action will move to a new city to represent "Max's downward spiral".
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.
"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 [more] 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."
We'll have more soon.
