Once again, the video game industry takes us by surprise! Indeed, Remedy Entertainment has just announced the development of a remake that will regroup the first two games of the Max Payne trilogy.
The Finnish studio is pretty busy at the moment. After the launch of Alan Wake Remastered last year and the CrossfireX single player in February 2022, Remedy is now focusing its attention on Alan Wake II. This sequel, developed in partnership with Epic Games, is due to land in 2023 on next-gen consoles as well as on PC. But that’s not all…
In a totally unexpected announcement, Remedy has made official the development of a remake of Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. Both games will be reworked using the Northlight engine already used on Control, Quantum Break and of course CrossfireX. Although the Finnish studio created the original games, it was Take-Two Interactive that later got the rights to the franchise.
In 2012, Rockstar Games had even released a Max Payne 3. Thus, it is the starry firm at the origin of GTA that will finance the remake in its entirety. Note in passing that Remedy plans to offer both episodes via a single game. Max Payne 1 & 2 will be released at an unknown date on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
