Rockstar has announced that they are pushing Max Payne 3 back into May 2012. The console versions (PS3 & 360) will release May 15th in North America and May 18th in Europe. The PC SKU launches in the US on May 29 and in Europe on June 1. Max Payne 3 was originally set to release in March, but this move sets it back two months and also moves the game into Rockstars Fiscal Year 2013.
“We do not take changes to our release schedule lightly, and this short delay will ensure that Max Payne 3 delivers the highest quality, groundbreaking entertainment experience that is expected from our company,” said Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick.
I’m upset about the longer wait, but in a way kind of happy that Mass Effect 3 and Max Payne 3 have more room between them now so I can enjoy both separately.
