If you're waiting on a sequel to Alan Wake or Quantum Break then those games will have to be approved by Microsoft first.
Microsoft must have a very strict publishing deal with Remedy for Alan Wake. Remedy owns the Alan Wake IP not MS.
well whatever the case may be... these need to happen and MS knows this.
I don't know maybe an alan wake,i got really bored with quantum break
I think if we're getting Quantum Break 2, it's not going to be made by Remedy. Unless they finally bought Remedy(Aka Remedy finally wants to sell) They really do need Remedy though. They need a studio with that same Cinematic style that Sony does. But Remedy doesn't seem to be that versatile when it comes to settings. All their games have the same realism to them. I don't think they ever pulled of a fantasy or sci-fi setting.
They don't need a studio with the same cinematics style as Sony, they need a studio willing to deliver something new and unique to the Microsoft x box brand. No need to play the us too game, gamers rarely win in those scenarios.
No, we don't want a movie game. Just give us more of the damn gameplay that was already there.
Remedy has a project called Control which will go multiconsole. Could be cool.
Hmmm but this is what Phil Spencer said 😁 https://www.google.com/amp/...
Quantum Break was crap. Alan Wake was good. Wouldn't mind a sequel. Microsoft, make it happen...
I was expecting Ms to announce the acquisition of remedy at E3 but was surprise not to see them on the list. Alan Wake and Quantum break need to be become one of the main games for Ms.
@Spurg Yeah, me too. I´m still have hope that Microsoft will acquire Remedy in the future since Phil said that acquisition of new studios hasn´t stop with the new 6. I´m also expecting Microsoft to acquire Moon Studios, Studio MDHR, Arena 44 and Crytek. :)
come on MS... get off your ass and green light these sequels.
Definite potential but you do wonder if they're worried about the returns on sp games. Yeah, we hear different but we can only judge them by their actions. Good luck regardless, never played quantum but did play Alan wake.
@Why o why "Definite potential but you do wonder if they're worried about the returns on sp games." I don´t think so. No after all the massive success of Sony´s first party games. Specially GOD. I think Phil will task both Playground Games and Ninja Theory on development of great AAA SP games. ;)
Or since you own the IP find another publisher. I see ms going the route of Sony and green lighting games which are for their studios. I see the says of AAA independent studios coming to an end because if a big publisher is backing a huge game and doesn't even own the IP that's a huge rush Remedy Insomniac Both of these will be sold within next 5 years Development costs are sky rocketing
Microsoft should acquire Remedy.
Maybe Remedy doesn't want to be bought, Control is the studios first multi-console came since Max Payne 2.
@Sciurus_vulgaris "Maybe Remedy doesn't want to be bought" Maybe. But money speaks louder (most of the time, anyways). Respawn comes to mind.
Alan Wake 2 really needs to happen. The original is a cult classic that has increased in popularity over the years. I know that doesn't make a sequel an instant success but I feel its worth a chance to see. Take some of the money you keep throwing at crackdown 3 and give remedy a green light
True . .
Tbh I think AW and Max Payne are 2 ops they need to bring back. Ide love a qb2 but for me cut the live action side of the game. It was fun but because of the 6 I think it was episodes being 20ish mins it made the game feel like it was completed in less than a few hours.
These would be good for MS. Get it done!!!
I'd love to see an Alan wake sequel, the game never finished. i could do without another quantum break, control seems similar anyways.
Remedy owns the Alan Wake IP and it don't have to be approved by Microsoft.
My guess is they own equal parts of Alan Wake. They both have to want to do it for it to happen.
They literally just said it's up to MS.......
And Phil Spencer literally just said that Remedy needs to WANT to develop the sequel. https://wccftech.com/spence...
MS likely has first rights to publish. That means they'd have to be given the first chance to publish the game. Not sure why MS would have the end say here though on QB. Usually with deals like that, if MS decides they don't want to make it, they can try to get another publisher.
Quantum Break's IP is fully owned by Microsoft.
I was talking about Alan wake
Aren't they making Control? It looks really good. I'm intrigued.
I'd love an Alan Wake and Quantum Break sequel.
Give me an Alan Wake remake/remaster for now....
Alan Wake 2 is obvious. I mean really.... make that. One of the best xbox games ever.
Well, I guess that shuts down that rumor that Quantum Break 2 was in the works.
I don't think sequels are really needed but if MS orders another game by Remedy then I think that'd be fine and good.
Get on it MS. Alan Wake preferably. I loved Quantum Break, but that story closed up nicely and Control actually looks like a spiritual successor...Alan Wake on the other hand...
For Alan Wake I think we got 3 pretty big DLC's and a second arcade game that was lengthy. It doesn't really need a sequel as I think it was played out but would be nice to see one anyway. Quantum Break definitely needs a sequel as it was left on a cliff hanger in regards to Beth and Paul at the end of time and what happen between the present day and that. I get that MS was burnt by the long production time of QB and it not being the blockbuster they wanted but some of that was MS's fault with their decisions in 2013, the low console sales and a lot of AW players going to PS.
It won’t happen considering how poorly both games sold unfortunately.
That's a real shame.
Do it MS, remove to the live action episodic cutscenes and add more to the gameplay length.
Quantum Break could’ve been Microsoft’s first new flagship IP this gen
"WE know. YOU mentioned this like 4times already ..."
yeah i would love to see a alan wake remake/remaster and after that alan wake 2. i mean the concept demo looks fantastic. give me more of the forest the town the people.
We are waiting for Alan Wake 2.
please, please Microsoft, give us alan wake 2
I loved Alan Wake. It needs to come back.
Is it me or does the guy on the cover of this game remind you of Bobby/Iceman from the Xmen movies
I'm not understanding the dilemma. The console wars are all about exclusives right? Makes sense for Microsoft to have another exclusive under its belt. People really want a sequel. So do it.
