Cheats and Walkthroughs
Yesterday, publisher Take Two Interactive posted its third quarter financial results, and while the company is definitely healthy -- net income rose 3.6% to $40.8 million, or 45 cents a share, from $39.4 million, or 44 cents a share, a year earlier -- there was no groudbreaking news in the financials. Basically, Take Two reiterated its strategy of concetrating on traditional, console-based "core" games. But We were most interested in what was missing: Any news of Max Payne 3.
Upcoming Take Two titles XCOM and Spec Ops: The Line are still listed for release in fiscal 2012, but Max Payne 3 was just not mentioned at all. We called Take Two to ask them about Max Payne 3, and the company offered the following:
"We have not announced any updates on the release window for Max Payne 3."
Oh. OK, then.

Max Payne 3 was originally slated for a Winter 2009 release date, which it missed by a wide margin. Screenshots were released. Details were revealed. But then, delays. So as of now, Max Payne 3 remains in that strange limbo inhabited by eagerly awaited games that have no project release window. For eager fans, no news is, in this case, bad news.
