The third iteration in Rockstar Games Max Payne series is currently in development and scheduled for a winter 2009 release on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

Once again players will jump into the role of Max Payne, a hard-boiled New York City detective with a penchant for violence, out to avenge the death of his family. Since leaving the NYPD and New York itself behind, Max has drifted from bad to worse. Double-crossed and a long way from home, Max is now trapped in a city full of violence and bloodshed, using his weapons and instincts in a desperate search for the truth and a way out.

Gameplay details have yet to be divulged, but Rockstar has said that Max Payne 3 will deliver more of the the classic elements and hyper-intense action that fans have come to love, while moving the story of Max in a new direction.

"We're starting a new chapter of Max's life with this game," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "This is Max as we've never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever. We experience the downward spiral of his life after the events of Max Payne 2 and witness his last chance for salvation."

More news as we get it.

The first Max Payne was excellent and I quite enjoyed it and his constipated look, as well as the bullet time. The 2nd instalment I got bored with. I hope the third one is an improvement. I certainly will consider it.
