Max Payne 3 skips Take-Two's 2011-2012 release schedule

Company says more news on the delayed game will arrive in the coming months

As part of its strong full year financial results, Take-Two has updated its release schedule for 2011-2012, with some promising looking inclusions and one glaring omission - Max Payne 3.

The long-delayed Rockstar title's absence from the release schedule was noticed by Kotaku, which received the following statement from publisher Take-Two.

"We're still working hard on Max, and we'll have more news in the coming months."


Not much to go on there. Could the game have run into even more problems? Max Payne 3 was most recently delayed in June 2010, with Take-Two saying at the time that it wouldn't see the light of day before April 2011.

Thankfully, Take-Two's release schedule for the next two years (below) already includes some brilliant looking games, including LA Noire and BioShock Infinite.

L.A. Noire (Xbox 360, PS3) - Spring 2011
Top Spin 4 (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii) - Fiscal 4Q 2011
Major League Baseball 2K11 (Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii, PC) - Fiscal 4Q 2011
Duke Nukem Forever (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) - Calendar Year 2011
Spec Ops: The Line (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) - Fiscal Year 2012
XCOM (Xbox 360, PC) - Fiscal Year 2012
BioShock Infinite (Xbox 360, PS3, PC) - Calendar Year 2012
