Quick quotes: Remedy’s Hakkinen on “phenomenal” Max Payne 3
“We’ve been blessed with being able to actually see the game and give some feedback. We’ve been meeting with Rockstar and looking at Max 3 – it looks absolutely phenomenal – the nice thing is we’ve been giving our feeling on the game but at the end of the day we don’t have to do any of the heavy lifting, which is nice. Rockstar don’t make bad games, so you already know it’s going to be good. Just like we hope the Remedy brand is a seal of quality, you know that Rockstar’s brand is a seal of quality. It’s been nice to be part of the process, but we don’t want to take any of the limelight. From what we’ve seen it’s going to be absolutely fantastic.” – Remedy’s franchise development head Oskari Hakkinen, speaking to NowGamer on the Finnish studio’s old stalwart, Max Payne.
The third game in the action series, developed at Rockstar Vancouver, launches in March for PS3, 360 and PC.
