Remedy Games has announced that they will remake both Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne in a new agreement with Rockstar games. The two titles will be remade as one title that will release using Control’s engine for PS5, PC and Xbox Series X.
Max Payne was known and loved for its bullet time gameplay mechanic which was a special power that allowed everything around them to slow down, which allowed for unique gameplay opportunities.
“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.”
Obviously, this is probably a few years away, but it’s exciting nonetheless.
