The lights are on
When Rockstar started showing more and more of Max Payne 3 late last year, we started to think that the game was on the right course and that it would be smooth sailing until the game's release in March. Clearly, that was a mistake.
The game's March release date has been changed to May 15, which pushes the title out of Take-Two Interactive's fiscal year. Accordingly, the company is now forecasting a loss for the fiscal year.
"We do not take changes to our release schedule lightly, and this short delay will ensure that Max Payne 3 delivers the highest quality, groundbreaking entertainment experience that is expected from our company," said Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick of the delay:
Max Payne 3 will appear on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 15, and then on the PC on May 29. For the latest on the game, check out these new screens.

It's good that 2K feels the need to delay the game to improve it. Now let's hope that they will actually take the time to improve the game unlike someone other developer *cough* Rocksteady *cough*.
Arghhhh! This game better be really good!
aw man. was gonna get this and ps vita for my march birthday.
Fine with me. I still have too many games from 2011 backlogged. Plus, I'm getting Soulcalibur V and Mass Effect 3, so even if Max Payne 3 came out when it was supposed to, I wouldn't be getting it then. I'm a-ok with them delaying it again.
Rockstar has delayed games before but I have faith this will be a good game. Rockstar tends to release some good stuff(very solid) from my point of view with the type of gamer I am at least.
Def. disappointed. My spring break was the week after the release and I was just gonna pick it up that weekend and play all week. Now I have to wait to the end of the whole semester. Well, I have faith R* knows what its doing and will make a great game. What a great way to start the summer it will be.
Good for me, it's two days away from my b-day!!!!
I don't mind the delay. Polish, Polish and more Polish. I have really high hopes for this game.
Gosh dang it!
Come on man!! This is upsetting. I believe this makes the third push back for Max. COME ON, MAN!! Killing me over here.
In other news, the sky is blue, and the grass is green...
I remember when GTA IV kept getting delayed.
thats awesome more games during the summer drought
Noooo! Not again!
Bummed out by that, but more time developing this game means more awesome.
Still excited and want the game.
