Remedy Entertainment and Rockstar Games announced that they are making the remake of the original Max Payne 1 and 2 games first released back in 2001. I have to say it was one of the most iconic game franchises and I loved playing it back in the day I had some amazing hours in the game, I’m super excited for this remake and hope to see a gameplay trailer soon.

Remedy is currently in the development and the games as a single game for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S using its proprietary Northlight game engine. The game’s development budget is being funded by Rockstar Games, and Remedy has a royalty opportunity after Rockstar Games has recouped its development, marketing, and other costs for distributing and publishing the video game.

Max Payne, was released in 2001 for Microsoft Windows and in 2002 for PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Apple Macintosh; a separate version of the game was released for the Game Boy Advance in 2003. A sequel of the game Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne was released in 2003 for PlayStation 2, Xbox, and Microsoft Windows.

“We were thrilled when our long-time friends at Remedy approached us about remaking the original Max Payne games,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games “We are massive fans of the work the Remedy team has created over the years, and we can’t wait to play these new versions.” “Max Payne has always held a special place in the hearts of everyone at Remedy, and we know the millions of fans worldwide feel the same,” said Remedy CEO, Tero Virtala. “We’re hugely excited to be working with our partners at Rockstar Games once again for the chance to bring the story, action, and atmosphere of the original Max Payne games back to players in new ways”

“The relationship between Remedy and Rockstar Games dates back to the original release of the critically acclaimed Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne games, developed by Remedy and published by Rockstar Games. Both games left an indelible mark in popular culture lauded for their neo-noir atmosphere, groundbreaking storytelling, and “bullet-time” gunplay.”
