As a side note to the company's fiscal results for Q3 2012, Take-Two Interactive Software, the parent company of Rockstar Games and 2K, has confirmed the new post-delay
release dates for upcoming title, Max Payne 3
Originally slated for release in early March, Max Payne 3
will now hit gamers like the proverbial gun butt to the back of the head, when it arrives on the Xbox 360 a little later - May 15th, 2012 in North America and May 18th in all other territories.
Let's continue with the firearm theme, by introducing a new 30-odd second-long trailer featuring Max taking on some thugs (who, frankly, probably wish they hadn't bothered turning up!) with a high-powered 608 Bull Revolver in hand:
Here's hoping that you've not already seen enough gun-toting for one day, because there's more! This comes courtesy of the latest batch of bad-ass looking screenshots which seen the light of day just a few hours ago.
If all that action has whet your appetite for the forthcoming iteration in the Max Payne
franchise, bear in mind that you now have until April 2nd to pre-order the Special Edition of Max Payne 3
. You can check out the available pre-order options, by heading to the previous delay announcement story (linked in the first paragraph of this article).
