Rockstar: We Havent Officially Given Max Payne 3 a Date

Max Payne 3Did you have October 30th down on your calendar for Max Payne 3?

Scribble it out now, it aint coming then. GOONL!NE has been told by Rockstar Games that the game wont be coming out at that date, given by and discovered on a fanrun PlayStation blog. When the blog contacted Play, they said that it was given to them by R*.

Thank you for your recent enquiry regarding the release date of Max Payne 3. Please be advised that the release date for this item, currently scheduled for 30/10/09, has been given to us by the developers of the game.

But when we went to Rockstar about it, a rep for the developer simply stated to us that they hadnt given the game a date yet.

We have not given Max Payne 3 an official release date as of yet, so the date advertised on Play is not one given by us.

It comes back off the heals of giving a November 27th date for Gran Turismo 5, but SCEE point blank told us that a date for the game had still to be confirmed. So there you have it, a lesson to be learnt from this and GT5: dont trust for dates to game
