The upcoming remakes of Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne have now moved into the proof-of-concept stage, Remedy CEO Tero Virtala revealed during the company’s latest quarterly earnings report.
Max Payne 1 and 2 Remake has progressed well and during the first quarter the project moved into the proof-of-concept stage. The development team has worked efficiently in proving the key elements of what Max Payne is all about and in bringing the game in high quality to today’s consoles and PCs. We expect the project to keep advancing well and with that, the team size will expand gradually towards year-end.
Remedy announced a year ago that it is working with Rockstar Games to remake the classic action-adventure games, which popularised the use of bullet time in video games. The following month, the studio revealed that it was looking to launch its Max Payne remakes by 2025, although it’s still too early to tell at this point when we’ll see them.
As previously reported, Remedy also confirmed that Alan Wake 2 is now in the final stages of full production, and is on track for a 2023 launch.
