Remedy Entertainment is working on a remake Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. The company is entering into a “new development deal” with Rockstar Games for the remakes, which will be released as a single title for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X/S.
“We were thrilled when our old friends at Remedy approached us about remaking the original Max Payne games,” says Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser said in a press release† “We’re huge fans of the work the Remedy team has created over the years, and we can’t wait to play these new versions.”
The game, which the press release somewhat awkwardly refers to as New Max Payne 1 & 2 Project, is “currently in the concept development phase”. No estimated release timeline was given. The budget for the remake will be “funded by Rockstar Games, the scale of which will be in line with a typical Remedy AAA game production,” the press release said.
The Max Payne remakes follow last year’s Alan Wake remastered, a new take on the cult classic. Remedy also works on Alan Wake 2although that is not expected to be released until 2023.
