Take-Two says Mafia II is on schedule, Max Payne 3 will be late

Thursday, 3rd December 2009 21:53 GMT By Stephany Nunneley


Take-Two has released its Q4 fiscal 2009 results, and included in the mailer was the news that Mafia II is on schedule for the first part of 2010.

However, like all good trains, Max Payne 3 will be running late and will not see a release until sometime during Q4 of 2010.

“Take-Two has a strong pipeline of titles that remain on plan for launch in 2010, including BioShock 2, Mafia II, Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption, ” read the report. “BioShock 2 is on target for a global release on February 9, 2010, and Red Dead Redemption is planned for April 27, 2010.

“Mafia II is scheduled to follow during the first half of calendar 2010, and Max Payne 3 is now planned for release during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010.”

The financial call is expected to start anytime, and we’ll be listening in for an explanation for why it’s going to be late.

At least this way, there’s a bit less on your shopping list for the first part of the year, kiddos.

    “However, like all good trains…”

    This is surely an oxymoron.

    They’d gone very quiet on Mafia II, I was fully expecting them to announce a slip. Hurry up and show us some more of it!

    From what I say at GamesCom, they need to work on their engine. Like, a lot. The FPS dropped well below 30 as soon as they went outdoors.
