Rockstar announces official Max Payne Mobile release dates
Way back in September we got wind that Rockstar Games was working on a mobile version of its iconic Max Payne game with updated graphics. At that time there was no release date or confirmed platforms. We guess that it would hit both Android and iOS around March 2012. We were pretty close!

A few minutes ago Rockstar Games took to its website and various social networking outlets to make the official Max Payne Mobile announcement. Max Payne Mobile will launch exclusively for iOS devices on April 12, 2012 followed by Android devices, two weeks later, on April 26, 2012.

The game will be the complete Max Payne PC title optimized for mobile devices. It will sport HD graphics, high-resolution textures, Social Club connectivity, and user-customizable controls.

Rockstar will release an Android compatability list soon, but says, on the iOS side, Max Payne Mobile runs on the iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 4, iPad 1, iPad 2, and the new iPad.

I thought it got shelved? Would definitely buy it though. I hope they decide wisely and build another great game basing on the game's immense popularity.

Max Payne 3 already has commercials. I believe it debuts sometime this year. It's got a different tone though. Not as close to the film noir that Max Payne 1 and 2 had. Should be interesting.

Still, I'll be happy to have a Max Payne adventure on my phone. I wonder what the story line will be...

i went to a convention called Pax East this weekend and actually got a chance to play Max Payne 3. It's going to be sweet and comes out next month!! It has a very original Max Payne feel to it.

Max Payne was never hardcore.

Have you heard of Modern Combat[2]? People play that on their phones. Lots of people. It's a fun first-person shooter that's easy to play and the graphics are OK. Just because it's on mobile doesn't mean it's hardcore, and it doesn't mean it sucks. Before you start spewing your immense knowledge of the gaming demographic, you muight want to do a quick Google search and educate yourself for 5 minutes.

I know where you're coming from, because I use a PC for gaming. Look up Modern Combat 2, it's available for iPhone and Android. Takes a few minutes to get used to, but it's an FPS. The controls are on the screen itself and you can customize the controls and how they work. It's also an online Multiplayer game, so you get to play against other players.

Any idea about the pricing? I'm guessing it'll be free on Android although I wouldnt mind paying 4-5$ if it turns out to be a good game.

If its running on a 3GS, I hope Rockstar did a good job for Android compatibility unlike with GTA 3 where it more or less requires a dual core processor androdi to play it.
