Remedy Development (the makers of the first two Max Payne's) are apparently helping Rockstar test Max Payne 3.
We’ve known the Rockstar guys for 11, 12 years now and it just felt natural as they were wrapping up Max Payne 3 that they reached out asking for input and feedback. We go, ‘Of course, that’s wonderful.’ We love Max Payne and personally I’ve been with Max for many, many years.” But don’t think Remedy is helping with the coding. Matthias continued, “They’re doing all the heavy lifting, it’s not like we’re doing a significant part of it. We’re not doing development
We’re just giving feedback, giving input, playing the builds and providing our thoughts. Certainly it’s fun. It’s almost like a dream job. You just get to play and give your input. (Rockstar) is very open and secure in what they do. They don’t ship bad games, period. With their kind of attention to detail it’s been fun working with those guys. We’ll continue to offer input as they continue to wrap it up.
Sounds great to me. With Remedy's input/feedback I can see the game being as good or even better than the first two. What do you guys think? Let us know in the forums.
