As you said RDR came out in late May, and I'm sure I remember San Andreas being released when there was plenty of light to keep playing into the late evening.
Can't really see them trying to dump on Max Payne, but maybe they consider GTA and Max to be different enough to both get a slice of the pie.
The end of the day they're totally different games, it's not an open world game, so hopefully they'll allow Max to get a few good months sales then stick out the big guns in june/july.
I think San Andreas came out in October for PS2, and I remember it being June for Xbox, which every other R* console game has done since (Q1).
