Rockstar and Remedy Entertainment announced the Max Payne 1&2 remakes last year in April. Both of the games will constitute a single title and release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. However, we haven’t heard much from any of the involved parties since this news broke out in 2022. Back in February, Remedy said in its financial statements that the game was in its concept stage and showing progress.

We got more info on Max Payne 1&2 in March via the 2022 annual financial report from Remedy. The Control developer reiterated that the game was in its concept phase a year after its announcement. In addition, only a small team was developing the upcoming remakes’ gameplay concepts. Remedy’s other major title, Alan Wake 2, was the reason for this as most of the studio was working on the horror game.
