Max Payne 3 is launching almost a full year later than expected, Take-Two Interactive announced today. While summing up their fourth quarter and fiscal year 2009, Take-Two has announced that Max Payne 3 has been delayed until the fourth quarter of Take-Two’s 2010 fiscal year; meaning it can launch anywhere from August to October 2010.
However, Take-Two has noted their other “big” upcoming titles are sure to keep you busy while you wait. BioShock 2 is on track for February 9, 201 and Mafia II is scheduled for the first half of calendar 2010 (in between January and June). Rockstar’s Red Dead Redemption is also on track for April 27, 2010.
“Take-Two noted that it has a strong pipeline of titles that remain on plan for launch in 2010, including BioShock 2, Mafia II, Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption. BioShock 2 is on target for a global release on February 9, 2010, and Red Dead Redemption is planned for April 27, 2010. Mafia II is scheduled to follow during the first half of calendar 2010, and Max Payne 3 is now planned for release during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.”
If the aforementioned titles don’t keep you busy while you wait, there’s always TBS’ House of Payne.
