According to CVG
, Xbox 360 World magazine claims that Max Payne 3
is currently in development internally within Rockstar at its studio in Toronto, Canada. Responsible for the fan favorite beat-em-up The Warriors, Rockstar Toronto would be taking the reigns from Remedy
- who is currently working (we hope) on the Microsoft exclusive Alan Wake
Details on the rumor are scarce as a release date, let alone an announcement date, has been set. We wouldn't be surprised if this rumor were true considering the credits of the Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
(PC version only) proclaim, "Max Payne's
journey through the night will continue." According the Rockstar career page
, Rockstar Toronto is seeking experienced Xbox 360 and PS3 programmers, so we know something for this generation is planned. Take Two has yet to respond to Joystiq's request for a comment on the rumor.
