Rockstar Games and Remedy have teamed up to offer a remake of Max Payne’s two iconic games. A title only available on PS5, Xbox Series and PC.
There’s news that quickly puts a smile on your face, like the announcement of a Max Payne 1&2 remake. Best of all, this project is in the hands of original creators Remedy Entertainment (Control, Alan Wake), with approval from Rockstar Games, who now owns the brand.
Max Payne 1&2 reunites in a new generation remake
It only took a tweet announcing the remake of Max Payne 1 & 2 to ignite Twitter and blow up Remedy’s shareholder page. But it’s true, Sam Lake and his teams turned to Rockstar Games for this project, revealed by Sam Houser
We were over the moon when our longtime friends at Remedy approached us to remake the original Max Payne games.. We’re big fans of the work Remedy has done over the years and we can’t wait to play these new releases.
Tero VirtalaCEO of Remedy added:
Max Payne has always held a special place in the heart of every member of Remedy, and we know millions of fans around the world feel the same way. We are very excited to be working again with our partners at Rockstar Games Bring the story, action and atmosphere of the original Max Payne games to life for gamers in a way never seen before.
A project with an XXL budget, financed by the GTA fathers
This return will therefore not be a hasty remaster, but a remake. Yes, A make new. In its press release, Remedy states that this release will take the form ofa unique game developed exclusively for PS5, Xbox Series X|S and PC with Northlight engine (Control, Quantum Break). The budget for revisiting Max Payne 1 & 2 will be that of a “typical remedy production”
Are we seeing a real return of license to the edge of the stage? It may be that this project is there to test the water and start talking about the franchise again… like Alan Wake. For this, Remedy first offered a remaster and then unveiled Alan Wake 2. It is therefore quite plausible that the pattern is repeated again, why not a remake of Max Payne 3, or rather a Max Payne 4 by Remedy. But please with the atmosphere of the first two cult games, gentlemen.
How are you reacting to this announcement of a Max Payne 1&2 remake? Do you think that Remedy will manage to sublimate the special atmosphere without changing it? Day one or are you “too old for this bullshit”? tell us everything Remarks.
