No Max Payne for Remedy

Alan Wake the focus

Remedy may have fond memories of the Max Payne series they created, but the developer have no plans to make a return to Take-Two's IP.

"Max was a long process for us obviously as well," franchise head Oskari Hakkinen told VG247.

"We sold the IP to Rockstar who are now doing their interpretation of Max Payne. I haven't seen it. I mean, I've seen the screenshots [of Max Payne 3], and you know what? Rockstar don't make bad games.

"Rockstar make awesome games, and, rightly so, they're going to make their own interpretation of Max Payne and it's not going to be a Remedy game. But it'll be awesome, because it's going to be Rockstar."

Max Payne 3 is out out at the end of 2010.
