Rockstar, much like Kojima Productions, can get away with their usual 3-5 year dev cycles for each new game they pump out since every game they release is of such high caliber. Max Payne 3 will fit in nicely. It's easy to see how far they've come from using the Euphoria engine since GTA4. Red Dead was solid, LA Noire added the facial animation tech, and now Max Payne is bringing full character animation based on AI design. Insane. GTA5 sounds more appealing by the minute.
