Max Payne 3 Coming

As usual Max Payne developers Remedy are presumably polishing off Alan Wake, it is Rockstar Vancouver that announced a third instalment in the series for PC, 360 and PS3 on Monday.

The award-winning Max Payne franchise put players in the role of Max Payne, a hard-boiled New York City detective with a penchant for violence, out to avenge the death of his family. The latest instalment delivers more of the classic elements and hyper-intense action that fans have come to love, while moving the story of Max in a new direction.

"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: The Fall Of Max Payne and witness his last chance for salvation."

Since leaving the NYPD and New York itself behind, Max has drifted from bad to worse. Double-crossed and a long way from home, Max is now trapped in a city full of violence and bloodshed, using his weapons and instincts in a desperate search for the truth and a way out.

Other than this announcement, all we have is the obligatory limited website. Lets assume at least early 2010 at this point but I'm excited at the prospect of returning to bullet time heaven!
