Remedy: Max Payne 3 “is Fucking Brilliant”

By   /   4 years ago


While Max Payne 3 is currently being developed by Rockstar, the franchise’s first two installments were developed by Finland-based developer Remedy Entertainment (Alan Wake).

Remedy, who’s consulting on the game, thinks that the long wait fans had to endure for Max Payne 3 will be worth it. Matias Myllyrinne, CEO of Remedy even thinks the game is “fucking brilliant.”

It’s fucking brilliant. I’ve had a chance to play it and we’ve worked with Rockstar a little bit – obviously, they’re doing the heavy lifting. They’re doing the development. But they wanted our input on a couple of occasions and we’ve had loads of our people, our core group, who worked on the first two games, give input and it’s awesome.

Myllyrinne also added that Rockstar’s reputation for building amazing games in general helps alleviate fears when it comes to the franchise they helped build from scratch.

Those guys, they just don’t put out bad games. And so, in that respect, it’s very – it’s almost like the best position to be in. It’s like somebody’s making a great game and you just get to give them input, and it’s already brilliant so I’ve enjoyed it.

Here’s to hoping that Myllyrinne is correct. We’ll know for sure what the verdict is when Max Payne 3 hits store shelves on May 15 for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
