'Max Payne out this winter', say Rockstar

Those wonderful guys at Rockstar Games, creators of the Grand Theft Auto series and just general legends have given gamers even more reason to kneel down and clip their collective toenails with their teeth – Max Payne 3 is coming out on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC this winter, according to Electric Pig.

The story will pick up just after the end of the second instalment of the series, with Max being even more grizzled, miserable and just generally super cool than before. Not only that, but he's no longer in the NYPD, or even in New York. The idea of an outlaw Payne in a new setting is quite pant-wettingly exciting, no?

'We’re starting a new chapter of Max’s life with this game,' says Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar. 'This is Max as we’ve never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever. We experience the downward spiral of his life after the events of Max Payne 2 and witness his last chance for salvation.'
