Over on the Rockstar Games website, the Grand Theft Auto creator has posted a Q&A session where they take questions from fans who want to know details about their upcoming Max Payne 3 and Grand Theft Auto V.

Besides dishing out some juicy bits about those two hugely anticipated console titles, Rockstar has also divulged that following the successful release of Grand Theft Auto III [$4.99] on the App Store late last year, their next title that's heading to mobile is the original Max Payne.

Here is the relevant exchange from the Q&A:

“Any news about Max Payne on iOS?” - avbros

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.

We heard rumblings that Max Payne was mobile-bound this past September, and today's information not only confirms that point but pegs the release window as being fairly soon. If you've ever enjoyed playing a video game that slowed down the action at certain times and went into a "bullet-time" mode, then you pretty much have the original Max Payne to thank for that (and the Matrix movie, but I digress).

Given the excellent job that Rockstar did with porting GTAIII to mobile, I'm expecting some pretty good things from Max Payne. Rockstar notes that an official announcement and release date are coming soon, and we'll keep you posted as more details become available.

    Big name developer? Recent high-profile release on the platform? New game close enough to done that they can announce it, yet they can't "officially" announce it?

    I smell iPad 3 demo time.

    This really pisses me off! Max Payne was developed by Finnish studio Remedy and wasn't even published by Rockstar originally. Why can't we have even basic facts checking in video game journalism?

      Yeah, but Rockstar bought the IP. Where in the article is stated that Rockstar developed Max Payne?

      • Finn Ericson

        The title reads "Rockstar's Original 'Max Payne' ", that's either bad choice of words or ignorance.

        This, or an honest mistake. You know, people tend to do mistakes, at least the last time i've checked.
