Rockstar Games announces Max Payne 3

Rockstar Games announced today that Max Payne 3 is currently in development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms, with a release date scheduled for Winter 2009.

"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."

Since leaving the NYPD and New York itself behind, Max Payne has drifted from bad to worse. Double-crossed and a long way from home, Payne finds himself trapped in a city full of violence and bloodshed in a desperate search for the truth.

Hopefully we can expect more news on the game at this week’s GDC.
