Most fans know Remedy Entertainment for Alan Wake, Control, and Quantum Break, but older gamers will remember the studio for introducing former NYPD detective, Max Payne, to the rest of the world.
Unfortunately, after working on Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne in 2001 and 2003, respectively, Remedy moved on to other endeavors following the latter's poor sales.
Nearly two decades later, Remedy is back to where it all began.
Remedy has worked out a "development agreement" with Rockstar to remake the first two Max Payne games for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S/X, and the PC.
According to Rockstar Games founder, Sam Houser, the fan-favorite publisher is "massive fans of the work the Remedy team has created over the years, and we can't wait to play these new versions."
The compiled remake is still in the "concept development stage" and will be "financed by Rockstar Games, the size of which will be in line with a typical Remedy AAA-game production."
Remedy is currently working on a sequel to Alan Wake, Control, as well as a spin-off, among others.
Hopefully, Remedy can handle all these big-budget titles without compromising the quality of the finished products.
