Android Max Payne Mobile app wait like Temple Run
It seems a release delay saga is underway for an Android app yet again. If you’re one of the many people waiting for Max Payne Mobile on the Android platform you may already have realized that the Rockstar game has been delayed, even though the iOS app is already available and was released on time.
At the beginning of April we told of the Rockstar announcement that the iOS version of Max Payne mobile would be released on April 12 with the Android game due for launch on April 26. However April 26 has come and gone and while those with iPhones, iPod touches and iPads are getting their fill of Max Payne mobile, those with Android devices are left waiting once again. Rather ironically at the time we told of the release coming on April 26 we posted that we hoped there wouldn’t be another Android app delay, as was well documented with the Temple Run for Android release saga.
Hopefully the Android wait for Max Payne Mobile won’t be quite as long as people had to wait for Temple Run for Android, with delays becoming increasingly frustrating and fake apps and scams appearing. Nevertheless there will undoubtedly be some Android users out there who must be wondering why it always seems to be the Android platform that is plagued with delays. Max Payne Mobile was much-anticipated and the iOS app has been a big hit so once again Android gamers are being left out of the loop.
News of the Android Max Payne Mobile delay comes to us from MCV but Rockstar say the game is only slightly delayed because of a need for some further final testing and should be available in early May at Google Play. Although it could be available later this week then, it’s a little ominous that Rockstar hasn’t given another precise release date. However after the frustration caused by release dates for Temple Run (Imangi Studios) that came and went, this may have seemed like a necessary precaution and Rockstar is boxing clever by not pinning down a release date.
Let’s hope then that Rockstar does indeed release Max Payne Mobile for Android later this week and we can avoid another scenario where Android gamers feel second best to iOS users. We’d like to hear how you feel about this Android app delay. Are you hoping that the delay will be very short as you can’t wait to play the Android Max Payne? Maybe you’re already becoming frustrated at the release delay? Alternatively you might feel that it’s more important to get the app right rather than release it before it’s ready?
