Game news Max Payne: the saga finally back, 2 huge remakes signed Remedy and Rockstar (GTA)!
So, for a surprise, that’s a fun one: the Max Payne series just officially announced its comeback with the remake of the first two episodes. And beware, we are not talking about simple ports: explanation.
If it is known that Remedy has laid check or Alan Wake† we must not forget that it is with Max Payne that the Finnish studio has acquired its noble letters : it’s quite simple, the first two episodes gave a nice kick to the anthill thanks to a revolutionary gameplay based on bullet time, a lovely atmosphere and a haunted narration. Great classics released in 2001 and 2004 respectively that will mark an entire era.
Imagine that, against all odds, the developers announced last night that they are currently working on two major remakes, the very one of Max Payne and from Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne † And while we don’t have an image or video to eat yet, the first official information is mouth watering.
Rockstar on AAA edition and bugdet
So it was by working directly with Rockstar (which was already the publisher of the games at the time) that Remedy came to a damn interesting deal. The remake of the first two Max Payne is fully funded by the star firm R, which therefore leaves full powers to the original developers to retype their babies: both will be made using Remedy’s proprietary engine, the Northlight, which was recently used for: check and Quantum Break†
Also in terms of budgetthere’s plenty to expect from mountains and wonders, as they’re just so-called “AAA” productions: very large projects that reflect Remedy and Rockstar’s desire to provide modern and spectacular experiences.
No release date has yet been announced. It must be said that these redesigns are currently in a preparatory stage, that is, “in the concept development stage”: on the other hand, we know they’re only planned for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series.
Really good news: is this the first step to revive the license and test the waters for… a Max Payne 4?
We are pleased to announce that we will be re-creating the iconic Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, in a new development deal with Rockstar Games.
