Rumor: Max Payne 3, GTAIV Team Working On PS3 Exclusive?
While we're always in the business of providing reliable, up-to-date news on anything PlayStation-related, we have to admit that everyone snaps awake when the word "rumor" accompanies a report. So raise your hand if you like a good rumor. 'raises hand' I do, I do!
Enter EGM's Quartermann; he's at it once again in the October issue, as detailed by 1Up.com. Quartermann isn't always right - that's why it's called a "rumor" - but if this information is true, it's going to raise a lot of eyebrows amongst PlayStation 3 owners. First of all, it seems that despite Remedy Entertainment spending all their time with Alan Wake, Max Payne 3 is still in the works. Rockstar has taken up development duties; the same team that gave us The Warriors is at the helm, and that's good news. But the second part of this rumor is even bigger: apparently, EGM has word that Rockstar is "still hard at work on an unannounced PlayStation 3 exclusive." The team behind this mystery project is the team that gave us Grand Theft Auto IV, so, yeah...crazy stuff. If it's true, what could they possibly be making?
Check out the October issue of EGM to read all this for yourself; it should be coming into stores this week. Obviously, we will now be scanning around for any info concerning a supposed PS3 exclusive being made by Rockstar. You can bet on that.
