If the group still was around, I suppose so
But really, this shows the hypocrisy surrounding game companies, DRM'ing the hell out of games, making things harder to honest gamers, and downplaying the gravity of the matter, while later finding out the same DRM they promoted as a Good Thing is also a pain in the ass for them for various reasons: lack of knowledge on how to decouple the DRM protection from the game, not having access to the source code, or just sheer laziness and the burning desire of making a quick buck. The case of Max Payne 2 is even more egregious, as Rockstar substituted one DRM system for another. Being a 2003 game, you could go and make the game entirely DRM free, eh? But noooo.
I guess we'll keep seeing more cases like this as digital services add more and more old games for which a crack is easily obtainable to their catalogue. Max Payne 2 is the third case this year, the previous ones being Arcanum and FlatOut, sold by GOG, which at least they're entirely DRM-free.
