Take-Two just announced that Rockstar Games expects to launch Max Payne 3 in May 2012, adding the title to the Company’s lineup of new releases planned for its fiscal year ending March 31, 2013. Max Payne 3 had previously been slated for release in March 2012. Rockstar Games plans to announce further details later today.
This brief delay has the effect of moving the initial release of Max Payne 3 from Take-Two’s fiscal fourth quarter 2012 into its fiscal first quarter 2013. As a result, Take-Two now expects to report a net loss for fiscal year 2012.
With Max Payne 3 now slated for May, Take Two has quite a lineup of upcoming releases for fiscal 2013, including BioShock Infinite, Borderlands 2, Spec Ops: The Line, XCOM, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and other titles yet to be announced for release that year.
