Max Payne Coming To iPhones And iPads

We just learned that the original Max Payne is coming to the iOS devices, which means you'll be able to play the game on your iPad and iPhone in the near future. We don't have a date yet, but on a recently posted FAQ list with fans questions, Rockstar said the following:

"Yes – following the release of Grand Theft Auto III for iOS (and Android devices) late last year, the original Max Payne will be our next release for mobile devices. We will have an official announcement soon confirming the release date, but you can expect it to finally be released sometime in the next couple months."

Speaking of Max Payne, the Q&A was advance hype for Max Payne 3, and we learned something that definitely will not be included in the game: Driving sections. Click the "Read More" tag for Rockstar's reasoning for the lack of driving.

"As we’ve stated in the past, we’re working very hard to ensure that we’re being faithful and true to the heritage of Max Payne – and the heart and soul of Max Payne gameplay has always been as a pure shooter. Apart from some pretty cool melee kills that can be triggered when in close quarters with an enemy (check out the very end of the latest Design and Technology video for an exemplary pistol-whipping), we have no intention of betraying that to introduce driving/racing or brawling elements. Just get ready for some of the most cutting-edge, advanced and insane shooting gameplay you’ve ever experienced. If you want driving, we do make some other games. This game is all about story driven gun play."

Rockstar is on a multi-year roll, so there's reason to believe that Max Payne 3 is going to blow us all away with bullet-time awesomeness. But, if you needed more evidence, check out the Max Payne gameplay video below:
