The Max Payne remake is one of the most anticipated games because it belongs to a franchise that is very close to our hearts. It has been 12 years since there has been any installment from this neo-noir third-person shooter series. The last one was the Max Payne 3, which was released back in 2012.

In the report, the company stated that those two remakes will make their way into full production in Q2 of 2024, which is from April 2024 to June 2024. A few months ago, the project was in the “production readiness stage,” which means the development of these projects is at its best pace.

Regarding the cost of development, this is what Remedy had to say:

Development fees increased from the comparison period, mainly due to higher development fees from the Max Payne 1 and 2 remakes.

So, the most viable question is: when can we expect this title to surface? According to an image shared by Remedy in 2022, the game is now in the full production stage. And as per the same image, we might see this game coming live in the upcoming 1-2 years.

What Else Does Remedy Have in Its Bag?

Besides those highly anticipated remakes, Remedy has a lot of other things to offer as well. In that business update, it has been revealed that the two Control games have made significant progress. For your information, the studio fully acquired the IP rights from 505 Games in February 2024, the company that is responsible for publishing the action-adventure title Control.

Talking about another Control title, Codename Condor is a multiplayer game set in the same universe. The game is in the final development stage before it is launched.

Regarding Alan Wake 2, this popular title regained a “significant part” of its expenses, as per the business report of the company. As a result, the studio is currently working on the two DLCs of Alan Wake 2, named Night Springs and Lakehouse. However, no release date has been confirmed yet.

This is all on our end. At last, our dearly wanted franchise is making a comeback with Max Payne 1 and 2 remake.
