Max Payne 3’s online ‘crews’ can be carried over to GTA 5’s multiplayer

Thanks to Rockstar’s Social Club, players of Max Payne 3’s online multiplayer can carry across the ‘crews’ they construct and use there in Grand Theft Auto V’s counterpart mode, which Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser described to IGN as “all part of our larger approach to make multiplayer deeper and richer”.

"Multiplayer is an ever-more important part of all our games moving forward,” he said in the exclusive interview. “And by creating crews through Social Club, the crews that you create in Max Payne 3 will be ready and available for you to play in Grand Theft Auto V from day one. It's all part of our larger approach to make multiplayer deeper and richer than what's currently available, much more easily accessible to the newcomer and rewarding for the hardcore.”

Little is currently known about the upcoming GTA V - what with Houser himself saying that they “made a promise not to talk too much about forthcoming games until a little further down the track” - but this is an interesting insight into the potential structure of the AAA title’s online component.
