Remedy Entertainment has announced that they will develop remakes of Max Payne and Max Payne 2 The Fall Of Max Payne as a single title for the PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC via an agreement with Rockstar Games (who owns the Max Payne IP).

According to the press release, Remedy will develop the Max Payne 1 and 2 remake using its proprietary Northlight game engine (which also powers 2019’s Control and the upcoming Alan Wake 2). 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.

Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser said:

“We were thrilled when our long-time friends at Remedy approached us about remaking the original Max Payne 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.”

Remedy CEO Tero Virtala said:

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. 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.”

Remedy Entertainment is also currently working on Alan Wake 2 , which was revealed at The Game Awards 2021, as well as a multiplayer game titled Vanguard in collaboration with Tencent.

Control was originally launched for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store in August 2019, followed by PC via Steam in August 2020. We named Control one of the best games of 2019. You can also check out our review of the game here.
