    The game wasn't announced in 2005 as far as I know...

    I would like a Max Payne 3, but the materials for the game confuse me. What are they going for with this next game? It doesn't seem to feel like the original film noir games at all.

    Remedy no longer has the rights to the series. So there is no developer, but apparently it isn't cancelled.

    While the gameplay was better in the second, I enjoyed the theme of revenge (with Max's idea clear in his head) a lot better in the first than the theme of drama in the second. I always figured his mood after the final showdown of the first clearly indicated he was at peace. The second just made him into a completely different character.

    This horrid abomination of a third game however...yeesh if it is free-roam and level up, I will loose all hope in action games. Actually, the pictures of this third game have already killed a bit of me on the inside.

    Looks like 'Call of Duty - Modern Payne 3' to me.

    Rockstar North is developing it, as far as I know.

    I've always liked the Max Payne games.
    don't really care about the story or the style or anything other than core gameplay.

    as long as they give you lots of different weapons (from pistols to automatics to explosives) and let you use bullet time with all of them, then I'm sold. the whole Payne series is just about creating your own Hollywood shootout in a variety of scenarios.

    ok so they might implement free-roam and leveling up. which is silly.
    but if it's done right then, at least to me, it isn't that big of a deal.

    And in other odd related news to both topic and quote, the max payne forums that had gone over to Gearbox with DNF now are back at 3dr.

    I think Rockstar always owned the Max Payne IP. The difference in this case is that Remedy (who, I think, came up with Max Payne) is not making the game.

    Not always. IIRC Take-Two bought the rights at some point during the development of Max Payne 2.

    I guess I should say that I think Take Two always owned the rights, since Rockstar published both games and 3D Realms produced both games (with Rockstar developing and publishing certain ports of the games as well).

    I certainly don't know the whole story, though, and Wikipedia has no thoughts on the matter either.

    Max Payne 3 wasn't a DNF-style vapourware game, the first we ever heard about it was when info was officially revealed with Rockstar on development duties about a year and a half ago. Sam Lake, Petri Järvilehto etc have just been working on Alan Wake since Max Payne 2. Tellingly, James McCaffrey isn't voicing Max this time around.

    I think it's going to suck balls. Should have been titled Fat Balding Guy's Brazilian Adventure.
