Please let it be a new IP, Remedy can make another series so much better than anything they have ever done before. New title for new hardwares please

Consoles? Great, they're not first party
I hope it's not published by MS. I want it on pc and the open world back.

It was pirated over a million times on xbox.

Was profitable on pc in less than 48hrs

Over all they sold a little over 2 million.

I think it's better for them to be on all platforms unless MS checks are that big there is no benefit to being xbox exclusive.

As a long time remedy fan I want them to make games without any MS influence.

And I hope they never buy them.

Since they state development for multiple consoles, I can only assume that they learned their lesson about how damaging Microsoft exclusivity was for their company and that they'll go completely multiplatform in the future.

I would assume that PC releases for their future titles will be a safe bet. If they stick with Microsoft they'll go under.

Are you on drugs?

"I can only assume that they learned their lesson about how damaging Microsoft exclusivity was for their company and that they'll go completely multiplatform in the future."

Remedy did not loose nothing by having MS publish and back the development of this game for them. Thats the beauty of having someone else publishe your game, if it does not sell well you do not take the brunt of the hit the publisher does.

Remedy is was too small to publish and finish AW on there own and they still are too small so they will be looking for a publisher to publish AW2 and since they already have a relationship with MS and AW already has a fanbase on the Xbox it will be MS who publish them.

One thing to note that if rumors are true that the Xbox 720 will be 70% PC and 30% consolew then expect cross gameplay on the 720 with PC and AW2 will release on both platforms.

lol only on N4G.

You do realize that Remedy approached both MS and Sony hoping one company would help fund or publish Alan Wake? Sony said no (obviously) and MS said yes. Yet using your twisted fanboy logic, MS are the bad guys? LMAO!

Yup, N4G at its prime. MS is always the bad guys, AW is a good fit for the Xbox/PC

@m2-

Nope. They just posted this recently.

"To apply, please fill in the application form by 3rd of February 2013."

consoles That's Plural.
stuna1  +   700d ago
Exactly! Plural for more than one console, not including PC.

I'm not saying PC is not included, I'm saying it means more than one console.

Could be a brand new first party title for the next xbox. They have been working with the Durango SDKs over a year now. Cant wait till E3 to see what they have to show us.
DOMination-  +   700d ago
They are not first party they are an independent studio.

Does anybody know if Remedy or MS own the AW IP? If its MS then this suggests a different game due to the plurals in the description. If Remedy own it then interesting times..

Think they Remedy & MS have a relationship like Epic games has with MS.

Alan Wake 2 here we come! :D
