Rumor: Take Two porting Max Payne 3 for next gen


Max Payne 3 is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year, PS4Daily has learned. According to a retailer source who spoke to PS4Daily, two new Max Payne 3 SKUs have been spotted, which correspond to PS4 and Xbox One versions. The game should be announced later this Summer with a Winter 2014 release date.

As announced at E3, Take Two and developer Rockstar are also porting Grand Theft Auto 5 to the PS4 and Xbox One. GTA 5 is scheduled for release in Fall 2014.

Apparently, Rockstar is putting lots of work into getting the RAGE (Rockstar Advanced Game Engine) game engine working on the new platforms with GTA 5, and all the work will make it easier to get Max Payne 3 on the same platforms, since both games are built using RAGE.

The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Max Payne 3 should have modest graphical upgrades, and should include the extra content and DLC that’s been released on the previous platforms.

Max Payne 3 was originally released in 2012 on the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Considering that Rockstar had already ported the game to the PC, and considering that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One use the same x86 PC architecture, it wouldn’t be that hard to get the game running on the new systems.

Max Payne 3 has sold over 5 million copies to date — which isn’t bad by any standard. Unless it’s Grand Theft Auto 5, which has sold an impressive 33 million units.

    I find this stupid, porting a 2 year old game to the PS4 and Xbox One. But hey, It’s just a rumor.

    • Rickodez

      If 2013 games are ported for the next-gen right now, why not a 2012 game?

    • HellRealm

      Max Payne 3 is still bussy bro!, that’s why i think

  • Now this is getting out of hand now…..
    PS4 and Xbox One = Last Gen Port Generation Consoles

    • TomDobo

      It’s looking that way. It seems these consoles are pointless owning at the moment. Too many remasters coming out.

      • It’s like a new simulator in hardware form….
        Last Gen Port Simulator 2014!

    • dcaseng .

      I have to agree. So far, the “next gen” is extremely disappointing. Where is all the hyped innovation? Regurgitating old games with small improvements is a form of ripping people off.
      I don’t mind seeing truly great titles being ported, as long as they show real improvement somewhere. However, many of these “remasters” are clearly a quick money grab.

    • ballsach

      So fucking what!? Do you know how many Nintendo games were ported up? How many Atari games even? This is nothing new kid.

    • Jonathan Martins

      The previous gen also had a pretty slow start, especially the PS3. In fact, this gen is doing pretty well release wise.

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    I hope not. GTA V is good reason enough for PS4 and Xbox One. Now, stop with the last gen ports.

  • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

    I like “good games” getting a remaster but these mediocre games.. Please.. This is not what the console gamer wants.

    • Epicstuf

      Umm. This game isn’t mediocre. It’s the highest rated in the Max Payne series.

      • bigevilworldwide

        Yeah by the current COD ADD riddled “gamers” of today….The game was barely mediocre and really didn’t feel like a Max Payne game….Anyone who puts faith in not only review scores, but metacritic averages is an idiot, 99% of games today are reviewed and rated based on the name on the box….

        • Epicstuf

          Ok. So are you calling me a COD fan, jackass?

        • sd

          I agree. The first two were amazing, but 3 felt different. They changed the formula and for me it just didn’t work.

    • mark_parch

      the only remastered games i will get are ones ive not played. max payne 3 is not medicore i would rate it in my top 20 games of last 5 years

    • Remasters are never what console gamers or any other gamers want, we want new and unique Titles.

      • Jonathan Martins

        I actually wouldn’t mind a remastered Red Dead Redemption.

  • dapaintrain

    I doubt rockstar would do this as mp3 didn’t feel held back at all and graphically it was amazing on 360/ps3 and it was an awesome game.
    Even the pc version which was better wasn’t that much better

  • Henry Hotspur

    The way the bullets penetrate their skin is amazing.

    But, still, I’d rather Rockstar get to work on a new title.

    • Jonathan Martins

      Said the serial killer.

  • Jim Angus

    Yeah come on rockstar time to spend your time on some new next gen titles rather than going the lazy route and trying to cash in on these remastered titles
    It’s getting really out of hand but then at the same time if people keep buying them and creating a market for this type of thing then there going to continue

    • Dimitri Theodosakis

      Just gives us Agent which was announced E3 2009 still no new info since

  • HAWK


  • oontz

    Since I missed it on ps3 I would pick this up for ps4.

  • TomDobo

    Make a new Red Dead already !!!!

    • Dimitri Theodosakis

      Make Agent already over Grand Theft Auto 5 Remaster&Max Payne 3 Remaster

      • TomDobo

        Gta 5 is needed if you ask me as a lot of people still play it/ wanting to play it. Max Payne 3 would be good as I never played it. But in all honesty I just want new games/new ips.

      • Charlie Hustle

        Nobody gives a shit about Agent, lets be honest. We all just want more Vice City, GTA, Red Dead and Max Payne, and maybe more Warriors but thats about it.

        • TomDobo

          The Warriors what a game and film !!!!

        • Em_ptySkin

          I want agent. I want it for PC as well.

  • brian murphy

    id rather have red dead redemption ported least it has some replay value i dont see myself buying max payne 3 again

    • ballsach

      That’s because you’re a fuckin douchebag.

  • Gotcha47

    So what is the problem. You have got the game, so you do not buy it again, fine. I do not have it and i like the remastered ones for the ps4, especially if they are complete for a nice price. The new games will come, but it takes time and money. So do not look upon it from your view but take a look from above to all !! That you have the game is not my problem. If the remake is fine and complete and has a nice price , why not. I do intend to work with only 1 console.

  • sd

    Hmm. I loved max pain 1 and 2 but no 3 bored me so much. It wouldn’t be on my list, but a bioshock trilogy would be great.

  • tomtank91

    PS4 and Xbone are current generation consoles, so get the facts right, plus this is another reason not the get either of the consoles if it’s only gonna get last generation ports.

  • James Lee

    This game can be bought on the old systems for a couple quid, i dont see the sales potential in max payne 3 for next gen at all.

  • Brad

    Of all the titles to port to next gen consoles this is not one of them. GTA5 will be worth the repurchase… this one wasn’t worth the initial purchase.

  • The Real Rick Grimes

    Love Max Payne 3, the amount of cursing in violence in it is like heaven.

  • Heavensmile

    dammit I already own this one

  • James Shaw

    Honestly though, one remake i dont mind for next gen is this. Max Payne 3 as a single player shooter, is probably the best ever made.

  • bodark

    A Jonah Hex game based on the comic would be an awesome game….

  • 3dLook

    it would be great if they add a possibility to save all the people in the game and change the ending.

  • Replicant Jason Booth

    Yes please….

  • ballsach

    It’s january 2015… this was clearly bullshit… fucking assholes.
