I thought the remakes has been in full production for a while now

They were making Alan Wake 2

Skuletor45d ago

You mean the game that already released almost 200 days ago now?

Be another Alan Wake 2 situation if not. I hope they're not that pigheaded. Like really, if they're that petty I won't even wait for a physical release.

LucasRuinedChildhood46d ago

They have a different publisher for Max Payne than they did for Alan Wake 2 (Rockstar instead of Epic) so there probably will be a physical release for Max Payne 1&2 at least.

ElaBosak45d ago

Rockstar is publishing. There will be physical release.

No physical support no buy .. do not screw This up

Sure Alan wake 2 still hasn’t recovered development cost

ElaBosak45d ago (Edited 45d ago )

What does that have to do with digital release?

Ela

There are many gamers who will not buy a game if it does not have a physical release, especially for Big blockbusters. So not being on steam and not having a physical release definitely has a lot to do with the fact they have yet to make that development cost back

I myself want to buy it on steam and I will also buy a physical version on PS five or Xbox if it becomes available but I will not spend a single penny on epic Store. I just want one storefront and one game launcher. I have no other reason to hate on epic or any other storefront.

ElaBosak45d ago (Edited 45d ago )

You think the physical games market is big? Have you looked at statistics from publishers between physical vs digital sales? Physical sales are almost irrelevant.

Neither Steam nor especially physical release have anything to do with it. Alan Wake 2 is inherently niche and not mainstream by any means. It would never have gotten a big audience and that's fine. Remedy and Sam Lake got to make the game of their dreams.

neutralgamer199244d ago

I am sorry I disagree completely. Yes physical market isn’t as big as digital but it still accounts for almost 30%. On top of that having the game on steam would have meant a lot more sales. These 2 points are facts and can’t be argued

To lose money again? Do you want them to close?

ElaBosak45d ago

Wdym lose money? How big do you think the physical games market is?

Max Payne is a far better franchise than Alan Wake. This should be good.

Just look at Alan Wake 2, it quite literally has the exact same character. This model in This article looks nothing like any rendition of max

I don’t think about what he’s going to look like so much as I wonder as to what he’ll sound like after James Mcaffery passed away suddenly last year. He was the voice of Max Payne and it’s hard for me to imagine Max voiced by anyone else.

mkis00780d ago

Why would they need new voice-overs? I imagine the lines will be the same. It's story is part of the appeal and the delivery of the dialogue, especially during the comic scenes is iconic to me. They may have had the idea to add more lines, but I think the path is clear with him gone now.

FPS_D3TH79d ago

It’s a remake. Not a remaster and it combines both games. I’d be willing to bet $100 a lot changes.
