GamesRadar writes: "We already knew that Alan Wake would be making a showing at the Spike TV VGA awards, but beyond that there wasn't a drop of information. Would it be more DLC? A sequel? A prequel? While we're still mostly in the dark, Major Nelson has provided a bit of illumination: the game will be entirely new, and it will be released on Xbox Live.
In the tweet, Nelson confirmed that the game will be a standalone product, though he doesn't use the word sequel at all. "We can confirm that this new 'Alan Wake' game will be a fully standalone experience," he said, "and released on Xbox LIVE." Remedy's community manager also chimed in, promising a screenshot on Monday."
