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.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
