After making a comeback in the gaming industry, Max Payne 3 ruled the hearts of the masses. With it’s dark and gloomy story, it proved to be a jackpot for the publishers. According to an analysis by Arvind Bhatia, Max Payne 3 will sell 4 million copies during its whole lifetime.
Max Payne 3 launched for Xbox 360 and PS3 last week and received positive reviews from both gamers and critics. It’s the first game in the series after Max Payne 2 that was released in 2003. PC version of Max Payne 3 is due June 1st, the original date was 29th May, but Rockstar decided to move the dead ahead for quality assurance.
Take-Two will release its fourth-quarter earnings this afternoon, and Bhatia believes the report will be in line with consensus, down 18 percent year-over-year. Looking to the company’s future, Bhatia has rosy expectations for the firm, saying the publisher’s fiscal year 2013 product lineup is its “best-ever.” Borderlands 2, Spec Ops: The Line, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, XCOM, and possibly Grand Theft Auto V will be “key contributors” to upcoming earnings, he said.
