The final gunshot was an exclamation mark on everything that had led to this point. – Max Payne, 23 July 2001
It’s been 15 years since Max’s American Dream came crashing down around him. It was a defining moment in Video Games, and I still remember spending countless hours beating the game at high difficulties, soaking in the grim, dark world, and enjoying every last bit of it. With groundbreaking visuals, and gameplay, Max Payne was first released on 23 July 2001. Celebrating it’s 15 years this is what Remedy had to say:
“23rd of July is a great as its the day Max Payne was released 15 years ago. All of us at Remedy Entertainment are grateful for the passion the video game community has shown towards Max Payne and the enduring the love the franchise is still getting. Pain to the Max!”
Rockstar added to this by saying:
“While we haven’t announced any plans to do anything in support of the 15th anniversary of Max Payne, we certainly appreciate everything the community has done over the years and we’re looking forward to seeing what fans will come up with to celebrate the anniversary later this week.”
