In 2004, the Max Payne rights were sold to Take-Two. Max Payne 3 primarily developed by Rockstar Vancouver. Remedy, as per request by Rockstar, does provide their input to the new devs about Max Payne 3 and are involved in testing the new game.
Creating Max Payne
The goals established by the studio were: bringing to life a new, compelling and rich character, and pushing the innovation of shooter genre gameplay with the implementation of bullet time. Due to budget constraints, the company could not afford to hire models for characters, including the protagonist Max Payne, therefore Sam Lake and other developers had to step forward and be those whose likeness would be used in the game.
They weren't directly involved in the development of Max Payne 3, though they did give their feedback to Rockstar Games.
