As always we’re about to give you a serious lowdown on all the hottest games releasing this year (yeah yeah, we know we’re a bit late) but before we did that we thought we would take a look at some of the games that still don’t have a concrete release date.
Max Payne 3
We know Rockstar announced it last year but since then there’s been virtually no information to come out of their camp. Sure we’ve seen screenshots of the new, haggard and plumpish Max Payne but we don’t even have a trailer till date. Plus Rockstar aren’t exactly the most punctual developers on the planet delaying virtually all their major franchises significantly which really doesn’t instill us with confidence.
Conceptualized ages ago and officially announced only three years back, Australian developer Team Bondi’s noir thriller has been as elusive as can be. All we’ve seen of the game since the past three years is one single screenshot and tidbits of information like the fact that the game will be a thriller set in the 40s in Los Angeles. According to Rockstar they plan on divulging a good amount of information soon so let’s hope one of them is a concrete release date.
John Carmack acknowledged its existence in 2008 and also stated that it wouldn’t be a direct sequel to Doom 3 nor would it be a remake. Beyond that all we have are specs of information like the fact that it should boast of better multiplayer and that it would look better than id’s upcoming game RAGE.
Announced last year with nothing except for a stupid logo on a website Thief 4 is shrouded in mystery just like its lead character Garrett (that is if he still is in the sequel). Will it be in first person? Will it be in third person? Will it be a fusion of both like Thief 3? Your guess is as good as ours as of now.
