Max Payne has been out of the spotlight for quite some time now. Not since 2003 have we seen the pissed off cop star in a console game. Well, after the abysmal Max Payne movie, starring a not-so-bad Mark Wahlberg, Rockstar has finally announced the sequel we've all known would come sooner or later and it'll be arriving for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.
"We’re starting a new chapter of Max's life with this game," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "This is Max as we’ve never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever. We experience the downward spiral of his life after the events of Max Payne 2 and witness his last chance for salvation."
Set for a Winter 2009 release date, Max Payne 3 stars an even more depressed Max who has abandoned the NYPD and New York. We have to wonder, what will Rockstar add to the series that essentially created the whole slow-mo "bullet time" fad that has been in nearly every other action game since the early 2000s? Max Payne practically defined the future of shooters and action games, so expectations are high for this all new iteration.
