Max Payne Remake Officially Enters Production Stage

Games developer Remedy Entertainment has shared an update on its upcoming Max Payne Remake. 

Announced back in April 2022, Remedy Entertainment announced that they had entered an agreement with Rockstar Games regading a new Max Payne 1 & 2 project. This new project was for Remedy to completely remake both Max Payne 1 and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, as one merged title. You can read the announcement including the full press release here.

Following their successful release of Alan Wake 2 last week, Remedy’s latest investors report detailed how the game has now moved from the proof-of-concept stage and is now in the production readiness stage:


Max Payne 1&2 remake progressed into the production readiness stage. We have gained clarity on the style and scope of the game, and we have an exceptionally well-organized team working on it. With these accomplishments, we are excited about the project and its future success“.

It is great to hear that the development team feel ready to move onto the next stage and start working on creating these two classic titles. Alan Wake 2 has been an absolute hit, receiving numerous 10/10 ratings and an overall 89 score on Metacritic. Despite the remakes being a few years away, we’re super excited to see how Remedy re-shape and modernise the original Max Payne titles. 

Of course, Sam Lake, the Creative Director at Remedy Games who was also the original Max Payne, will most likely be re-playing and modelling him in the remakes. Sam plays Alex Casey, an FBI agent in Alan Wake 2, and so the below screen taken from the recent release may just be our first look into a modern-Max Payne.
