Take-Two have announced that Max Payne will be delayed a month despite the move causing the company to report a net loss for the fiscal year ending March 31st. The new launch date coincides with Rockstar's previous releases for the past two years running and is allowing the developer more time to polish the game.
Meanwhile, Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick assures fans that they shouldn't be disheartened by the news. "We do not take changes to our release schedule lightly, and this short delay will ensure that Max Payne 3 delivers the highest quality, groundbreaking entertainment experience that is expected from our company."
Max Payne 3 will be available on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC in the new launch window of May, 2012.
