Max Payne 3 Announced

BOOM widget 122041Following months, if not years, of internet rumors, Rockstar today officially confirmed the development of Max Payne 3.

In production at Rockstar Vancouver (Bully), Max Payne 3 features a now-retired Payne who still can't escape a world of corruption and violence.

"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."

Max's new chapter will include a new city, as he left behind New York City after the events of Max Payne 2. Rockstar did not specify the city the new game will take place in.

Max Payne 3 will be released for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next winter.
