Rockstar Games today revealed that the highly anticipated Max Payne 3 is set for a March 2012 release window.
“Max Payne 3 gave us an amazing creative opportunity to evolve one of our most iconic characters,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We’re excited to show fans a modern version of Max that pulls them back into his dark and twisted story.”
The game will pick up where Max Payne 2 left off as the titular character begins a new life working private security protecting a wealthy industrialist and his family in Sao Paulo, Brazil, while still dealing with the traumatic events of his past.
Things of course go awry when a gang goes after the family he’s protecting and you can bet the bullets start flying from there.
Max Payne 3 will be available on the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
