Max Payne: In your pocket in the coming months

While console gamers are waiting for Max Payne 3 to hit the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 a little later this year, mobile gamers are in line to get a fix of the franchise too. Rockstar Games has confirmed that – following the very successful iOS release of Grand Theft Auto III last year, the original Max Payne is currently receiving the pocket-sized overhaul.

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.

Details are pretty sparse, but today’s revelation backs up a number of stories that had been circulating since September. We’re not quite sure how the gameplay will be translated to the touchscreen, but if you’re a fan of bullet-time, chances are you won’t be disappointed.

The iOS version of GTAIII was fantastic, so the bar’s been set pretty high for Max Payne. It’s all just speculation at this stage though, so stay tuned for the official word from Rockstar.
