Rockstar Games has today announced that the launch of their new Max Payne 3 game, scheduled for March, has now unfortunately been delayed until May 2012.
Max Payne 3 is an upcoming third-person shooter video game in the Max Payne franchise published by Rockstar Games for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and is the first game in the series not to be developed by Finnish game developer Remedy Entertainment.
The popular bullet-time in action sequences will make a return in Max Payne 3, and will also feature over-the-shoulder zoom aiming and cover mechanics. Max will also be able to stay grounded after a dive, enabling him to shoot 360 degrees around him.
Rockstar’s Sam Houser explains: “This is Max as we’ve never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever.”
Max Payne 3 was originally set to launch back in late 2009 but it was then pushed back to 2010 alongside several other Take-Two Interactive franchises in order to “benefit from having more development time.”
In June 2010, the game was again pushed back to 2011 and now is set for launch in May 2012. Lets hope it not becoming a Duke Nukem 2 and the launch of the game doesn’t get pushed back even further. Youie can watch the debut trailer for the new Max Payne 3 game here.
