Advantages of releasing Alan Wake 2 as a launch game for the Xbox 720

Bubblews: "Although Alan Wake 2 is expected to be announced soon for the Xbox 720, it remains a mystery as to when the video game will be released. If Remedy Entertainment is smart, they would have developed the sequel as a launch game for Microsoft’s next generation system." (Alan Wake 2, Xbox One)

It would be Microsoft decision since Remedy would need a publisher to fund the project

Alan Wake is one of the best games this generation. I hope they make Alan Wake 2.

Remedy own the rights to the series; they should shop around with publishers & hopefully it will get a day 1 multiplatform release.

Personally I expect MS to have already funded it or at least talk to them about it.

Alan Wake was arguably one of the most unique and coolest exclusives the 360 had. Its sales aren't up to the other, bigger games but 2m is great for a new IP especially as not as mainstream.

Since MS is rumored to be wanting exclusive shows for Live I wonder if some will be game related... Alan Wake would be cool miniseries or movie.

If MS had as much business sense as I suspect, its already being developed for durango. Seeing this at their may 21st event would be phenomenal

I hope not. They should go else were and bring it to all platforms.

Remedy owns the rights.

I'm really hoping it is announced soon. I really wanted to like the first one. Loved the set up, the atmosphere, the way they had the episode like chapters complete with music and scenes for the next episode.
Hopefully they make it the actual action a lot less monotonous than the first one.
Septic  +   1013d ago
Yeah the action needs to be mixed up a little but I loved the atmosphere.

It would make an excellent launch title, the game has gone on to sell 2 million copies, it has a following, and I believe Remedy could take full advantage of the power of the next Xbox, maybe even making it more of an open world game.

It was one of my favorite new IP's this generation, so hopefully we see more of Alan Wake!

Some people had speculated it could be the mystery 'zombie game', which seems a bit of a stretch but not impossible.
Jek_Porkins  +   1013d ago
Is that the zombie game being made by Undead Labs? I haven't heard a rumor of Remedy making a zombie game.

Undead Labs was working on State Of Decay and another unannounced zombie game for Microsoft.
from the beach  +   1013d ago
There was a rumour that the 720 launch lineup will be Ryse, Forza, a 'family game' and a 'zombie game'.

Some people had guessed the 'zombie game' could actually be Alan Wake 2.

I think Undead Labs stuff is separate to all of that - State of Decay on XBLA soon and a sequel further down the road.

Alan Wake 2 on new hardware would be sick!
Shadowgate  +   1013d ago
They should go to ps4....
ichimaru  +   1013d ago
or you know both?
ichimaru  +   1013d ago
Would be one of the best launch title exclusives in recent memory
BanBrother  +   1012d ago
I said it, along with a new Lost Odyssey are the only games that would make me buy a 720 day 1. I came to this article expecting it to be the same as the other Alan Wake article, that is filled with people who....don't like xbox and are jealous they missed out on one of the best games this gen because their crappy part time job at KFC can't afford them the pleasure of owning more than one console, relieving them of the need to mindlessly defend/bash a particular console because they have a small penis...........much like most of this site actually.

Bring on May 21st. Anyone mad? Just hit 'reply' and prove me right :)
ichimaru  +   1012d ago
Lol aside from the rampant flaimebait in that comment, I agree Lost Oddesy would be a phenominal addition to the durango launch. might also help in their Asian launch region
deadfrag  +   1013d ago
And PC latter on.

Could give it to MS but PS4 won't get it
Could give it to Ubisoft but PS4 will get extra content
Could give it to EA but it will require an online connection
Could give it to THQ.... too soon?
RuleofOne343  +   1012d ago
Don't think AW is going anywhere but on NG Xbox , if those rumours of MS studios being behind on their projects are true. Beside the Xbox ,PC crowd love AW where he's at .
Loki86  +   1012d ago
The problem with the first Alan Wake was that it wasn't hyped nearly as much as it should have been and was overshadowed by two other big titles, this time it should be shown the proper attention because it was phenomenal.
ichimaru  +   1012d ago
Perfect example of undermarketting over performing. Hope they don't lose the magic with the sequel
samekratos  +   1012d ago
heck yea bring alan wake 2.
