Max Payne creator Remedy Entertainment announced that it will remake the iconic Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne video games.
Holy cow... Alan Wake 2 and now this... I had to double, triple check first that this wasn't some left over from April 1st.
You have to be careful, Larian just put this out today https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Oh god... what did I just watch...
I'm going to play that.
Very excited recently bought the original to play via BC. So if I understand correctly they will make each game separately and very early stage of development. 2025-2026 at the earliest is my guess but I think these games will finally get the love and support their deserve
I’m not sure the development cycle would be that long, considering they’re not “new” games. The storyline is already there, the gameplay and the models have been mapped out. I would think it would be next year sometime.
Yeah come to think of it I think you could be right and the development could.be much shorter than a new game from ground up Like you said they already have most of the stuff they need and they are using their in house engine so that should cut down on development time too. I do wonder if they will straight up remake or will they make some changes to story if needed
Northlight Engine! Hell yeah!
The news generated so much traffic, it broke the website. https://twitter.com/remedyg...
God I love these, super happy they are being remade It just had that special something the third game was missing If Renedy ever got to do another game I hope they do their own Max Payne 3: The Rise of Max Payne a timeline where Mona survives and Max stays in New York
Idk if they would want to. Sam Lake was really happy with Max Payne 3. He didn't want Rockstar to just imitate Remedy's games.
The issue I just felt is that Max Payne 3 came off like it was a new early IP by Rockstar, they got given the Max Payne franchise and we’re like “f*** it, let’s use this and just make this new game Max Payne, we’ll work around why we’ve set it in Brazil story wise” You don’t have to make a carbon copy but it missed s lot of things which made the franchise so good. The best parts of the game were the flashback levels in New York
People like me love Max Payne 1+2 are usually doesn't care about 3, it's boring. It completely different game the story hit a different direction to the first two it completely ruined it imo. It's a game that have Max Payne in name but there is no Max Payne in 3 it a completely differently character with better graphic.
100% I liked Max Payne 3, but it didn't feel like a Max Payne sequel. The character looked way too different and there were no connections to the other game.
Special something, probably nostalgia.. lol
Always is. It’s classified as an addictive substance.
Not really Those iconic comic like cutscenes Gritty, dark setting in New York Music was more memorable Theme song from Poets of the Fall was better over Health Mona was a good foil for Max and interesting but ended up being thrown away choosing the wrong ending to go off Drenched in Noire atmosphere and story wise
I can get behind that! I am VERY excited!
Damn I'm excited for this. Very wary with Rockstar being involved because their reputation is awful lately. Hopefully with Remedy developing it it should be good.
Rockstar is purely financing this all the tech work is on remedy
just like they were only financing the GTA Trilogy. Everybody knows how THAT turned out. Plus, Remedy also had their hands on CrossFireX, right? THAT didn't turn out well either. honestly, it's really hard to be hyped by Remedy anymore these days. They are kinda misfiring left and right
I did say Rockstar weren't developing it but they didn't develop the recent trilogy either and they cheaped out on it. As said it should be good with Remedy.
badz149 Cross Fire being awful wasn’t Remedy’s fault that being said they have a great track record. Easily one if the best developers around and Sam Lake is a excellent writer
looking forward to this .. and two titles in one package, even better!
I have gained a ton remedy respect for their last few games. Control was great and I’m playing through Alan wake for the first time on ps5 now. You can tell it’s dated but was also ahead of it’s time. I like it a lot. The last one before that was quantum break I think which okay but it didn’t put them on the map for me. I can’t remember playing any max Payne games but I know I have. I like the idea of the current remedy remaking these games. They seem to have come a long way. I’d be interested in anything they make at this point. That’s until they pull a cyberpunk type deal and ruin their own reputation.
Dead Space, Splinter Cell and now the Max Payne Remake. Back to the roots! :D
Good job remedy are involved as rockstar can’t release a fart these days
