It seems like development of Max Payne 3 is running even more slowly than a slow-motion dive from its protagonist. It's already been delayed more than once, and when Take-Two failed to mention it at all during its financial conference call earlier this week, and it didn't appear on the company's release schedule, we feared the worst. Said fears appear unfounded, however, as Take-Two reps have informed Kotaku that the publisher is "still working hard" on Max Payne 3, and more information is expected "in the coming months."

Yeah, it's not much, but at least we know Max isn't dead. Not yet, at least.
