Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne Remakes Announced For PlayStation 5 in Remedy and Rockstar Dev Partnership

Developer Remedy Entertainment of Alan Wake and Control fame, has announced that it's working on remakes of Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, in a partnership with Rockstar Games.

“We are pleased to announce that we will remake the iconic Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, in a new development agreement with Rockstar Games,” the Finnish studio tweeted, alongside a link to the full announcement press release.

Remedy will handle development on the Max Payne 1 and 2 remakes using its proprietary Northlight engine, with Rockstar Games financing the project "in line with a typical Remedy AAA-game production." This is not entirely unlike the original deal between Remedy and Rockstar that birthed the two original Max Payne titles in 2001 and 2003. In 2012, meanwhile, Rockstar decided to go it alone for Max Payne 3.

"We were thrilled when our long-time friends at Remedy approached us about remaking the original Max Payne games," Rockstar co-founder Sam Houser commented. "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."

The remakes of Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.

  • Very nice, only played Max Payne 3 which was epic so very curious about these 2.
  • I never got around to play these so this is good news for me, was always keen to try them out.
  • I got to the red line in the first game and gave up during that. I was enjoying the hell out if it but that part was so frustrating. I'm curious if this is going to be a remake like the Spyro where it's pretty much the same games but prettier.
  • Will definitely pick this up when it releases. I remember playing the mobile version of 1 on my old iPhone and wishing for a controller. Hopefully it does well to encourage Rockstar to also give 3 the remake treatment. I love the dirty realistic aesthetic in it that most games avoid. Although Condemned Criminal Origins and TLOU2 also nailed it.
  • They need to do 3. It’s the best out of all three.
  • Wow! I can't wait to replay these!
  • Will wait for user reviews after Rockstar messed up that GTA remaster
  • @Chap904 Rockstar isnt developing it.
  • I'm so happy about it you have literally no idea. I love those games so much.
  • How about a Max Payne 4. I rather have that
  • Excellent news, I've been wanting to replay the second one for such a long time. One of my favorites growing up, I really enjoyed that Instant Action mode or whatever it was where you had to last as long as possible. It was a pain in the ass but really fun.
  • Remedy will handle development on the Max Payne 1 and 2 remakes.... just in-case people didn't see that line. so safe to say it's in good hands.
  • YES!

    of all the bullshit remakes reboots remasters this is definitely one that needs it and by Remedy too!
    Hope this will pave the way for 4, I enjoyed 3 but it lost a bit of what made Max Payne great in the first 2 imo
  • Better grab the games from digital stores then before those are delisted
