Max Payne 1 and 2 Remakes in the works by Remedy and Rockstar

Remedy and Rockstar Games are ready to surprise the world.

Today is a big day for Remedy Entertainment and Rockstar Games. Max Payne and Max Payne 2 third-person shooter video games developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Rockstar Games are being worked on, thanks to a new development agreement between the two companies. Remedy Entertainment is working with Rockstar Games to make Remakes for both Max Payne and Max Payne 2, what appears to be an already successful CPR given to the franchise.

The two remakes will be developed on Remedy’s Northlight engine, and believe it or not, the insane hype has already crashed the website of the official Press release. Remedy Entertainment released Max Payne for the first time in 2001, followed by a sequel two years later. Now, a new opportunity to play these two in a much greater scene and visuals seems to be around the corner.

According to the press release:

Remedy Entertainment Enters Agreement with Rockstar Games for New Max Payne 1&2 Project 

Remedy Entertainment, the creators of Max Payne, are pleased to announce that they will remake the iconic Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne video games in a new development agreement with Rockstar Games.

The relationship between Remedy and Rockstar Games dates back to the original release of the critically acclaimed Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne games, developed by Remedy and published by Rockstar Games. Both games left an indelible mark in popular culture, lauded for their neo-noir atmosphere, groundbreaking storytelling and “bullet-time” gunplay.

“We were thrilled when our long-time friends at Remedy approached us about remaking the original Max Payne games,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games “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.”

“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,” said Remedy CEO, Tero Virtala. “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.” 

Under the development agreement signed today, Remedy will develop the games as a single title for PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S using its proprietary Northlight game engine. The game’s development budget will be financed by Rockstar Games, the size of which will be in line with a typical Remedy AAA-game production. Under the agreement, Remedy has a royalty opportunity after Rockstar Games has recouped its development, marketing, and other costs for distributing and publishing the game.

The project is currently in the concept development stage.
