Rockstar has pushed back the PC launch of Max Payne 3 a few days, due to production and logistical issues.
The game has been pushed back from its original May 29 release date in the U.S. to June 1, bringing it in line with the European release. “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 Rockstar’s Jennifer Kolbe.
She blamed “production and logistical issues” for the delay which prevented the team from executing the original plan of bringing the EU release forward to May 29. In order to ensure a worldwide release they opted to push the U.S. date back instead. This is nothing too major, a couple of days won’t hurt anyone and it will be worth the wait.
