Max Payne Remakes Are Fully Fledged AAA Games With Alan Wake 2 Budget

Expert Verified By

Ambitious Projects With Same Budget As Alan Wake 2!

Story Highlight
  • Remedy Entertainment is entering production of the Max Payne remakes before July.
  • The studio states a budget similar to Alan Wake 2’s has been allocated for the project.
  • Rockstar Games is funding the remakes.

Among the likes of record-breaking exclusives like Spider-Man 2 and Game of the Year winner Baldur’s Gate 3, Alan Wake 2 stood out as a visual benchmark and a fantastic horror game.

Following this success, the industry patiently awaits future games. Among the confirmed projects, the two Max Payne remakes are the most anticipated. Expected to enter production soon, these remakes are being built with a similar budget as Remedy’s last game.

Why it matters: The Max Payne franchise has not been relevant in over a decade. Therefore, fans are breathing a sigh of relief after seeing this careful treatment from Remedy Entertainment and Rockstar Games.

Remedy Entertainment has made some intriguing revelations in its latest financial statement. While the progress of the remakes was already known, the developer’s insight into the budget is quite interesting.

Alan Wake 2 had a budget of about โ‚ฌ70 million. With these resources, the studio released one of last year’s most polished experiences. It is also important to note that the remakes are being funded by Rockstar Games.

Therefore, with similar resources, we expect Max Payne to be every bit as polished and ground-breaking. Modern features like path tracing will likely make their way over to this franchise after being on full display in Alan Wake 2.

Overall, this budget highlights that Remedy Entertainment is not holding back, giving this series the treatment it deserves.

Max Payne 3
Max Payne 3 Is Not Being Remade

Apart from the remakes, titles such as Control 2 and Project Condor are in the works. All projects will progress to their next stages later this year, making it an exciting time to be a fan of the studio and its work.

With full production beginning by June 2024, Max Payne should return to the gaming scene by 2025 or 2026 at the latest.

Next year will also see the release of GTA 6. In the scenario that the Max Payne remakes manage to arrive in 2025, two major Rockstar Games IPs will thrive in the industry at once.
