It's been a while...

Max Payne 3 is just around the corner - unfortunately whilst I will be undoubtedly playing the game upon release, it is time for me to give up this domain. I no longer have the time to keep updating the site.

Whilst I'm not going to just give away the domain to anyone - I'm open to any offers. webmaster@maxpayne.co.uk

Rockstar's Max Payne 3 Emerges Again
Another magazine has backed up reports that the inevitable third instalment in constipated shooter series, Max Payne, is in development internally at Rockstar.

The latest Xbox World 360 echoes this US mag report, which claims that the shooter has been moved away from original Finnish developer Remedy (which is currently asleep on the job with Alan Wake) and handed to Rockstar Toronto, the studio responsible for The Warriors.

Some fans will take it as bad news that the original daddy isn't at the helm, but with the current Wake situation we reckon they should be glad it's coming at all.

"While Rockstar aren't patently going to be able to bang the game out in time to coincide with Marky Mark Wahlberg's forthcoming cinematic portrayal of New York's most tragic cop, we're guessing they're at least going to ride in on the back of it," says XBW.

The rumour's looking more and more likely to be true then - and with a film coming out, why wouldn't Rockstar pump out a new one? We would.

Take-Two previously confirmed the third game in a conference call back in 2004, stating that "there will be another Max Payne". Though obviously not much has happened since then...

Remedy's New Game at E3 2005!
Remedy, makers of the stylish Max Payne franchise, send word confirming that it will be showing off their next game at E3 next month from ATI's booth, plus announced that they are self funding the title.

After the completion of Max Payne 2, there has been a continuous, active interest towards Remedy's next title from both the press and the gamers. So far the developer has remained silent and kept a strict focus on the pre-production of a new game franchise of their own design.

Breaking News! - Max Payne III Announced!
Despite critical acclaim, the sequel to Rockstar's popular graphic-novel-inspired shooter barely broke NPD's top 10 best-selling PC games. In February, Jeffrey L. Lapin, CEO of Rockstar parent Take-Two Interactive, went so far as to blame the publisher's lower-than-expected Q4 2003 earnings on Max Payne 2's lackluster sales.

Today, in Palm Beach, Florida, Lapin echoed those statements. "Max Payne [2] came out in November and did not do as well as we thought," he said. "In fact, it did fairly poorly compared to our expectations."

However, Lapin surprised some by confirming Take-Two's intent to make Max Payne 3. "There'll be another Max Payne," he said in a presentation at the 17th Annual Bear Stearns Media, Entertainment and Information Conference. "I think we'll take a few years to make the next one that much more spectacular is what we have to do. But it's clearly a brand that everybody knows."

The long wait begins...

Max Payne II Demo!
The Max Payne II Demo is now avaialbe to download. It weighs in at 245MB and contains the first two and a half levels.


Technical Interview With Markus Maki
Here is a preview:

"Max Payne 2 is a DX8.1 game although it requires the DX9 runtime (why is that, btw?). Was DX9 (hardware and API) made known to your Remedy partners when concept for this game started? If yes, why go with DX8.1? Too far down the development path already? Didn't envisage the quick take-up of DX9 hardware?

The project started as a content-only project, and we didn't originally plan on taking the technology nearly as far as we
took it in the end. Max2 requires the DX9 runtime, since it would be almost double effort doing the quality assurance on both DX8.1 and DX9."

Full Interview.
