Max Payne 3 joins BioShock 2 in FY2010

While BioShock 2′s delay into fiscal 2010 quite rightly dominated last night’s confessional press release and subsequent conference call from Take-Two, you may not have noticed that it wasn’t the only big game to take a tumble.

Max Payne 3 has also been pushed into the next financial year, having been originally planned for a “winter” 2009 release.

Said CEO Ben Feder:

“The decision to shift a release date is never an easy one, especially with a product as highly anticipated as BioShock 2. We felt that it was essential to invest the additional time to ensure that this title will deliver what its fans expect and deserve.

“As a result, we will now be launching sequels to several of our strongest franchises – including BioShock 2, Mafia II, Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption – during the next fiscal year. These titles will anchor our lineup for fiscal 2010, and along with other products planned for next year, provide a platform for enhanced financial performance in what we hope will be an improved retail environment.”

Whoops.

    Regarding Max Payne 3: If FY 2010 starts in november 09, couldn’t “Winter 09″ still be “it”?
