Max Payne 3 Slips, Releasing Later Than Halloween

Max Payne 3 has been delayed until some time after Halloween 2010, according to a press release from the game's publisher issued today.

The anticipated Rockstar sequel had been expected for release by then when last we heard from publisher Take Two Interactive.

Take-Two's update to investors indicates that L.A. Noire (also from Rockstar), Mafia II and Civilization V are all still planned for release sometime between August 1, 2010 and October 31.

The delay of a Rockstar game always stings, but the last delay turned out pretty well for gamers. Here's hoping a delayed Max Payne 3 turns out to be as good as the once-delayed Red Dead Redemption.
