Xbox Support tweeted the following around 40 minutes ago:

Edit: Oh, that might have been posted, but I think it's good to give a heads-up again.

Pending the announcement of Grand Theft Auto Five, I've created the page here: /grand-theft-auto-five/61-36765/

It's current name is Grand Theft Auto Five, which I did based off the logo. I think we'll need GTA V, GTA 5, Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto V.

Confirmed for March 2012!

Today, we're proud to announce that Max Payne 3 - the new dark, gritty action experience that continues the tale of former New York City detective Max Payne and is sure to satisfy both newcomers and veterans to the historic franchise alike - is expected to launch on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in March 2012 in North America and Europe.

Still haunted by the memories of his traumatic past, Max begins a new life working private security protecting a wealthy industrialist and his family in Sao Paulo, Brazil. When gangs target the family under his protection, Max is forced to fight to save his clients and clear his name, in a bid to, once and for all, rid himself of the demons that have tortured him for far too long.

A true cross-studio collaboration between Rockstar Games’ global development teams that picks up from where series creator Remedy Entertainment's Max Payne 2 left off, Max Payne 3 utilizes cutting edge technology for a seamless, cinematic action experience, incorporating the latest advances in Natural Motion physics as well as a brand new iteration of the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine, resulting in highly-refined gameplay with an extensive range of realistic weaponry, an intelligent cover system and sophisticated Bullet-Time mechanics.

In addition to an expansive single-player campaign, Max Payne 3 will also be the first entry in the series to introduce a thorough and engrossing multiplayer experience. In a unique twist, Max Payne 3 multiplayer delivers a compelling experience that dynamically alters maps and mode progression for all players in a match. Along with traditional multiplayer modes, Max Payne 3 will also include a deep reward and leveling system, persistent clans and multiple strategic load-out options.

Hey look at that, Helvetica's back for the main font <3

All right, have had a look around. Some critiques from a fellow webdesigner :) 

Here, the 'menu' bit should be bold in my opinion, as it's a header. Also, the left side of the active state is almost blurry, either make it sharp or round it. :) 

Again, here the balance feels a little off. Using appropriate bold text instead of capital letters could calm it down a lot more. :) 
Last point, I really don't think this new font is going to work for body text. Using it for headers etc should be fine, as long as it's bigger than the current 12px. I prefer using Helvetica or Arial for body font, it's at least the safest choice. :) 
To round up, I'm not knocking this new style at all, I love the fresh layer of paint , but I feel like it has only been spread to the header and need to be a little more refined in other spots. Again, new header is awesome. Keep it up designers!
