“The night was wet. Wet and hot. Max had a deadline to meet; March 2012. He’d been in development for quite some time and his fans we’re getting restless. As the sweat poured from his brow, Max could feel that something wasn’t quite right. He was going to have to disappoint. A May release would just have to do…”
Take -Two have announced that the eagerly expected Max Payne, which had a planned release date of March, would indeed be placed into RockStar’s ‘favourite’ release month of May. Fans can now expect the game to arrive on the Xbox 360 and PS3 on the 15th of May in the US, with the UK dates being the 18th of May. PC gamers having to wait until the 29th of May in the US and the 1st of June in the UK. That’s ages away right?
It was announced by Strauss Zelnick, chairman and CEO of Take-Two, who said the “short delay” was to “ensure that Max Payne 3 delivers the highest quality”.
Pistols crossed that he’s right on that.
