Rockstar confirms Max Payne 3 development

Max Payne is back: 'He's coming'

In tweets and an email today, Rockstar Games has confirmed that the Max Payne franchise isn't dead and buried: Max Payne 3 is still in development. It has been almost 10 years since the original Max Payne hit store shelves, and eight years since Max Payne 2: The Fall Of Max Payne.

Max Payne 3 was originally slated for a winter 2009 release in North America, but underwent a series of delays — the game was pushed back to 2010, and then it failed to appear on Rockstar Games' 2011-2012 release schedule. Information on the new game is still sketchy, with fan site RockstarWatch reporting the possible title Max Payne 3: Sao Paolo Knights — which appeared on a voice actor's blog in mid-2010, but has since been removed.

A sparse Max Payne 3 Web site contains a few cinematic screenshots from the game, as well as buddy icons, avatars and a wallpaper.

Check out in-game screenshots from Max Payne 3.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
