Rockstar Games has delayed the release of Max Payne 3 PC. According to the announcement, the delay will allow the company to have a single global release date, the company said today. Instead of May 29, gamers will have to wait another three days until June 1.
"Our community has always preferred a single worldwide launch date, and while we couldn't make it happen for the console versions, we decided to work toward a global release for Max Payne 3 on PC," Jennifer Kolbe, Rockstar's VP of Publishing, said in a release. "Due to production and logistical issues we could not bring the European launch forward, so we worked with US retail to align with the original European launch window and set a new global release date of June 1."
The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game were released on May 15. Rockstar has already announced DLC for the game later in June.
Watch for Jeff Mattas' review of the game in the next few days. Word is he is having quite a bit of fun with it.
