TVGB: "The release of Max Payne 3 has slipped by a few months, Rockstar has just sent word."
New dates added: the 15th in North America and 18th internationally on consoles, and on PC on the 29th in NA June 1st internationally.
May is dead for releases. Only Ghost Recon is down for release in May and it looks awful. Expect Max Payne to sell like hotcakes.
Agreed. This was a smart move.
I really don't care. It looks like a good action game, but a bad Max Payne game, just like Resident Evil 5 was a good action game but a bad Resident Evil. I don't expect much from this game.
That's the problem with many sequels going. Developer/publisher seem to think unless the sequel becoming a heavy shooting game, the game can't sell.
This doesn't shock me. Rockstar has had success in that May time frame in recent years.
NNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OO!!! Can't you see this means no GTA V in MAY... OMG!!! The PAIN.... I was so hoping all the rumors were right and May would be the launch date, but if this just got pushed back to may, that means no GTA V in may because Rockstar would never put them out at the same time... OMG - the pain, I feel like someone just punched me in the stomach, I was so looking forward to playing GTA V all summer... Now I guess summer is going to be all Max Payne... .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
what a shocker.......this is rockstar a company that has fallen into the gutter this gen Theyve only released 2 or 3 games themselves, all delayed to heck and then a year latter a goty edition with content that was cut from the original game........ and then they release a fourth game and again its delayed to hell
@ Slade Read Dead Redemption was GOTY in 2010 by most accounts and had 95% Metacritic score. This alone is prolly why your getting all the disagrees for not knowing what your talking about. I prefer delays if it means a better game at the end of the day. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
1 game? 1 game reviewed high from media ( but is actually quite boring) is why I should care about rockstar? There game production decreases by 75 percent they rip people off with dlc and really pathetic goty editions like red dead. and they are good?
@Slade Maybe you forgot about all the other games they've made this generation? Like, GTA IV and both of it's expansions (which, alone, is an entirely new game worth of content), GTA V, GTA: Chintatown Wars (that was a great one) THIS ONE (Max Payne 3, obviously), and Midnight Club: Los Angeles? Sorry to say, but's more than "1 game". And, Yes, the DLC was good (Please tell me how TLaD, and TBoGT were actually in the original game. Same for Undead Nightmare in RDR. These DLCs are too big for the discs, man). All in all, excluding my personal dislike for GTA IV for it's controls, which worked much better in RDR, they've brought content out that their studios have developed themselves. Oh, I forgot. You've been playing CoD too much to know anything about the outside world. My apologies, I had completely forgotten.
@ Slade you sound more like you are talking about 99% of all the other dev's this gen, Not R*... Are you sure you know who R* are, lol.
"why I should care about Rockstar?" If you don't care about them why are you posting in here? As for saying Rockstar rip people off with DLC, if you think providing DLC such as Undead Nightmare in RDR or Ballad of Gay Tony in GTAIV is a rip-off perhaps you should try some DLC from games like Call of Duty if you want to experience being ripped off.
They actually released 4: GTA4 RDR Midnight Club LA L.A. Noire 2 of those won GOTY and one of them was revolutionary. Rockstar simply don't make bad games. Some may not be amazing but they are never bad. Take your crap somewhere else.
well i think rockstar is smart and delays the game if they see that something is wrong and when they finally release the game it works well... Yes rockstar hasn't released huge amount of games now but they are very good with much content and big DLC. Rockstar doesn't fall so low like COD and do the same game quickly over and over and over again :S
this is because theres too many games coming this march! too many competition, games like Resident evil Operation racoon city, 3 silent hill games (SH HD, SH Downpour), jrpg's like Tales of graces, Yakuza Dead souls, Ninja Gaiden 3.. i think Rockstar made a smart desicion
so when GTA5 gonna come out?????? fuuuuuuu rockstar i want GTA 5 this year!!!!
Then I guess we won't be seeing GTA 5 until the end of the year after all.
Or later. Did you see what Take Two said about the delay? "With Max Payne 3 now slated for May, our robust lineup of upcoming releases for fiscal 2013 is even stronger, including BioShock Infinite, Borderlands 2, Spec Ops: The Line, XCOM, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and other titles yet to be announced for release that year.' I expect GTAV to release next March..then be delayed to Summer, lol.
gta5 wont come out till april 2013, its R* they only release one game a year
max payne 3 now trending
so I guess my first game purchase of the year will now be in may
Im happy. Was just starting to wonder how to get this and ME3 at the same time. Now its solved.
This works nicely. Only other game I plan to get in May is Dragons Dogma so this is great. I think it's safe to assume we won't see GT5 this year though.
Aside from some pretty pastel coloured buildings, there's been suprisingly little that's stood out to me in previews in terms of building up a sense of atmosphere or the tongue in cheek aspect that is part of it, noir theme or not. I hope that the game remembers to have personality rather than just great gunplay set pieces.
don't worry, thats what the build up to RDR was like, then it got delayed then like 2 months before it was released, the net exploded with everything RDR
I'm fine with the delay. I am tired of getting broken games on release day when they should all take the extra time to make thier games solid upon release. And as much as I loved Max Payne 1 and 2 I can just hope this game can still deliver on his visceral side.
NNNnnnnooooo!! Devastating, for me, cause I've been anticipating this game for over a year. But game-delays usually indicate additional polish, content, and overall improvements. w/e what can I do? I will wait egerly.
Oh no, a whole year!? Omgomgomgomgomg! ...
that sucks but gives me more time to pay off the other games and play the games that are coming out next month and later on this year
I am fine with this delay it spreads out the game and makes it so they will not have to patch it like crazy.
Im abit un sure about this game loved max payne 1 n 2 but ive not liked any of r* games this gen as they are all been to much alike and i just could not get into them for what ever reason.. So i hope max 3 is different but i do think it will sell well.
I actually think it would be awesome for this game (if all goes well) to come out during a extreme dry spell for us gamers! Im hoping it comes out good for us!
Just because Max Payne 3 was delayed doesn't mean GTA V won't come out this year, but it seems likely since the trailer gave no release date.
I'm just happy for a "pure" Rockstar game. LA Noire was good, but didn't come close to meeting the lofty expectations.
I was hoping for March but there's a lot of games coming in that month so good move from Rockstar. I'm guessing GTA V will release in Oct-Nov to face off COD.
