Rockstar have announced release dates for Max Payne 3, the upcoming sequel to Remedy Entertainment's popular noire-themed, bullet-time action games, currently in the works in-house at Rockstar.

Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will see the game on May 15th 2012 in North America, with Europe (and Australia) three days later on May 18th, whereas the PC version is due to arrive two weeks later on May 29th in the US and June 1st for the rest of us.

While it's not great news that a PC version will trail the console release, it's better than L.A. Noire's six month wait and Red Dead Redemption's complete no-show on the desktop platform, so we can't complain too much.

Stay tuned tomorrow as Rockstar have promised another new behind the scenes video, focusing on design and technology.

Better not be another s*** port.

two reasons i can think of for pc being delayed a couple of weeks

1. it's a s***** port and they need the extra time to polish

2. they're releasing it earlier on console so they get a few more sales before the inevitable pirating of the pc version.

i hope it's 2.

they got to swap all the "Press (X) and Press (Y) button" intructions with "Press [SPACE] and press [ENTER]" that takes time yo!

Usually I'd be similarly jaded, but I think Rockstar's track record on their PC versions -- whether you want to call them ports or not -- has been reasonably solid. Then again, maybe that's because they took so much extra time for some of them.

Another score for console

The game will definitely be a port, rockstar don't make PC games. But generally rockstar's ports are acceptable.

Definitely getting this on console, the way it was meant to be played

There's still a lot of console piracy. Rockstars pc ports are a bit hit and miss for me. Some of the missions in the GTAs are horrible to do with a kb/mouse.

Yeah rockstar don't make PC games so this will of course be a port. However I think their porting record to PC is among the worst there is so I expect this to be utter s*** on the PC. I'd suspect there is just as much piracy on consoles as it has been said before, the copies are our weeks before any PC version becomes playable.

At least the PC gaming master race has valve and blizzard left.

And whats worse, they keep their A = run, jump, use, etc to a single bind instead of multiple binds as it should be for PC. Playing batman ATM and cant f*****g stand using space for sprint and use. Space = jump FFS.

As long as its not GTA4 all over again, im cool with the wait.
