Max Payne 3 made its way to consoles on May 15, with a PC version expected to follow on May 29. Unfortunately, that date has been pushed back a bit. Fortunately, it wasn’t pushed back by much.
Rockstar announced on Tuesday that the PC version of Max Payne 3 will instead be releasing on June 1, rather than its targeted May 29 release date. In a statement announcing the news, Rockstar said that the reason for delay came down to production issues that held back a global launch.
“Our community has always preferred a single worldwide launch date, and while we couldn’t make it happen for the console versions, we decided to work toward a global release for Max Payne 3 on PC,” said Jennifer Kolbe, VP of Publishing.
“Due to production and logistical issues we could not bring the European launch forward, so we worked with US retail to align with the original European launch window and set a new global release date of June 1.”
The PC gaming crowd is already used to having their version delayed for some reason or another, so I doubt there will be many complaints about Max Payne 3‘s delay, especially given that it’s only for a few more days. Going by all of the reviews, it looks like the wait will be well worth it.
