Max Payne 3 slips out of 2010

Take-Two reveals all in financial report. 

Take-Two has listed all the games it plans to release during the rest of the financial year - and Max Payne 3 is nowhere to be seen.

"While we do not take the movement of any title lightly, our recent success with Red Dead Redemption illustrates the importance and the benefit of giving a title the time it needs in order to fulfill its potential in the marketplace," said bossman Ben Feder.

Back in March, Take-Two said Max Payne 3 would be out by the end of the fourth financial quarter on 31st October. Now that's no longer the case and there's no word on a new release date.

Ah well. There's still Civilization V, LA Noire, Mafia II, NBA 2K11 and NHL2K11 to look forward to, all of which are still on track for a release this year. Not to mention New Carnival Games.

Take-Two's net revenues were up by 54 per cent in the last quarter, reaching $268 million. The publisher attributed the rise to sales of BioShock 2 and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, plus the continuing popularity of GTA V and NBA 2K10.
