Max Payne‘s original creator, Remedy, is currently away from the city with Alan Wake, leaving Rockstar to pick up from where they left off with Max Payne 3. But there clearly hasn’t bee any ill feelings about the switch up. In fact, Remedy’s head of franchise development Oskari Häkkinen recently went as far to call the new game “brilliant”.
“We absolutely love what they’ve done and couldn’t be more proud of where the series is headed,” he told Kotaku.
“I mean, they don’t really make shitty games, do they? It’s as if the Rockstar logo has become this, ‘Seal of quality.'”
If Remedy approves, then we approve. Max Payne 3 is now launching in May for 360, PS3 and PC.
