In a surprise announcement, Remedy Entertainment says it is working with Rockstar on a remake of the first two Max Payne games for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X and S.

The announcement of Max Payne 1 and 2 remake came totally by surprise with a press release in which Remedy explains that the two games will be released on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S as a single product and that they will be developed with the Northlight Engine used for games such as Control and Alan Wake 2. Remedy will handle development while Rockstar will fund the project “which will be in line with a typical Remedy AAA-game production.”

“We were thrilled when our long-time friends at Remedy approached us about remaking the original Max Payne games,” said Rockstar founder Sam Houser. “We are massive fans of the work the Remedy team has created over the years, and we can’t wait to play these new versions.”

Remedy CEO Tero Virtala added the following: “Max Payne has always held a special place in the hearts of everyone at Remedy, and we know the millions of fans worldwide feel the same. We’re hugely excited to be working with our partners at Rockstar Games once again for the chance to bring the story, action, and atmosphere of the original Max Payne games back to players in new ways.”

The Max Payne franchise is known for its use of bullet-time, action sequences and dark detective stories with interfaces to the neo-noir genre. In each of the games, the New York detective uncovers major conspiracies within organized crime.

Max Payne 1 and 2 Remake Release Date

There is no release date given for Max Payne 1 and 2 Remake yet as the works are at a very early stage: the project would in fact be in a concept development phase. This announcement, however, will delight the community that has been waiting for a return of Max Payne for some time. It could be that the game will only be released at the end of 2023 or 2024.
