Take-Two Mum on Another Max Payne Game

BOOM widget 116821Publisher Take-Two dodged questions about a possible sequel to the Max Payne franchise of action titles during a financial conference call held this afternoon.

"It's a little early to comment on any particular title but we have a lot of interesting things going on," a Take-Two representative said when asked about the potential of future Max Payne titles. "What's the saying? We will sell no wine before its time."

The last entry in the Remedy-developed franchise, Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, arrived on PC, PlayStation 2 and Xbox in 2003. An adaptation of the series is currently being filmed for cinematic release, with Mark Wahlberg starring as Max Payne himself and Mila Kunis as Mona. The movie is set to be released this October.

During the call, Take-Two, which owns the Max Payne property, made repeated references to reviving past notable Rockstar properties, though it failed to specify any particular franchise.
