Fans of Max Payne should get excited as Remedy Entertainment has announced that they are teaming up with Rockstar Games to remake Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne.
Both games will be combined into a single game and released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC. The remake will be built on Remedy’s Northlight Engine and will have a budget in-line with typical Remedy AAA productions.
“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 game is currently in the concept development stage so it will likely be some time before we get to play it but this is exciting news nonetheless.
