Main article: Hospital Ending
  • There was an alternate ending planned in the early stages of development in which Chloe Price would have ended up in a coma. As evident from a piece of concept art, Max would have visited Chloe at the hospital.
  • The hospital location was originally designed for the above-mentioned alternate ending, and the scene with Kate after she survived her suicide attempt was only added later on because the fans liked Kate so much.
