Remedy Entertainment is looking for world-class talent to work on an unannounced project targeted at future generation consoles.
Next-gen Alan Wake with LA Noire-style facial animation as standard?
really sad we only see only one game from them this gen
I hope they create a better ip than Alan Wake, because that game was horrible. Though I have fond memories of Max Payne. Best of luck to them.
Alan Wake was horrible? how so?
@RustedMan Scroll down to my other post.
Why did u change the title and description of the article??
I thought it was pretty well known that they were going ahead with Alan Wake 2 for the next Xbox, or maybe I've been mistaken? I remember reading it though, I think quite a few companies are now developing for next generation consoles.
or at least close to launch, Games like Alan Wake would´ve done better if launched as a launch tittle because there´s not many games to choose from, Alan Wake came out almost at the same time as Red Dead Redemption, SC Conviction, Mass Effect 2, God of War 3, FF XIII and just before Fable 3, Halo Reach. For a new iP is very difficult to fight these big boys so it makes sense to make this a launch tittle for the Xbox 720 or Xbox Fusion or whatever name is.
Like Alan Wake was a launch title for 360
I think Remedy found their selves confined to the 360's hardware, even though they knew they wanted to develop for the Xbox 360. They have a LOT of behind the scenes processing going on in their engine, and unfortunately, they had to downscale the resolution because of it. I've played through that game about 3 or so times now, and never experienced slowdown, tearing, aliasing issues, etc. They have a fantastic engine, they just need a bit better hardware for it. Hopefully an Alan Wake 2 comes out on Microsoft's next piece of gaming hardware, and they're able to utilize it without having to worry too much about a bottleneck.
I think Remedy did a good job with Alan Wake and I think its one of the best looking and games this gen. I do wish there was a MP mode on it but as side missions as I don't think it would work in the main story. I hope there is an Alan Wake 2 and if it is a release game for the next xbox then this will be the game I get with it. So far Alan Wake is my game of this gen for the 360 followed by Forza 4.
Alan wake double Pack for the PS4
Why do you waste your time trolling and dont play games?
hes not trolling? hes saying what he wants.
He goes on pro PS3 articles and says PS3 exluvies should be on xbox and goes on pro xbox articles and says xbox games should be on PS3.
@Moncole ....and what is wrong with saying that exclusives from one platform should be on another?
I don't know if I would call it trolling. Misguided, sure. But it's all too random to be trolling.
@Moncole That's an efficient way to troll. I commend his enthusiasm and find it amusing.
@gtx Don't fall for his BS. Jose is an anti-ps3 troll that constantly pretends to be a dopey ps3 fanboy. Glorious Dawn is absolutely right; jose is an EFFICIENT troll. On occasion, he does vica versa in a 360 article, but he mostly sticks to ps3 articles. Probably just Bungie again, I'd guess.
The article clearly states that Remedy is preparing for future consoles including PS4. While jose may troll on other articles, and may in fact be a troll. I don't see that comment as trolling. I personally would love for Alan Wake to come to PS4.
I would have been banned for less. Welcome to N4G
CONSOLES or CONSOLE?
how about PC at the same time as launch as consoles..
Wont happen. They need to release it console-only first to get PC gamers (who may also have an Xbox) to buy it, as well as Xbox gamers. That way when the finally do release it on PC later, there will be a lower piracy rate as some of those ignorant PC pirates would already have paid for the game on Xbox. Financial thinking.
Given the time it took them to develop Alan Wake I guess that the next gen is probably about 5 years away. :p
Heh, yeah, they took theyr time^^ Tought they are very small company, also they builded brand new engine in-house for the game, swapped platform and changed the nature of the game in the process. I think they will get it done sooner now. And I hope there will be proper PC version from the start this time, tooked it's time to get AW to PC..
I just hope its not boring/repetitive like Alan Wake.
Doesnt the story make up for it though?
Read a Stephen King book instead if all that you care about is the story. Because Alan Wake's script basically IS a Stephen King book. The admit it about a million times within the game.
Hmm.. That's kinda the point really SilentNegotiator.. I listen finnish gaming podcast, and one of Remedy's writers, Mikko Rautalahti, visits it often, very funny guy if I may add. And he basically has drawn the picture that all in AW is supossed to feel like SK novels, Twin Peaks, and various tv-culture things. Even the game is made in episodic nature, and the first game is like "first season" of it. It's more like a tribute to things that you usually don't see in gaming, and I really wouldn't count it as a flaw, I wanna see more of it in industry.
I found Alan Wake far from repetitive... short but excellent game.
I totally agree with you sir. The game was a chore to play. It failed on almost all fronts. Repetitive game play, very simple (treated the player like an idiot), weird graphics, and a story that's poorly conveyed (not once did I care about any of the characters). Though it did throw inanimate objects at you well.
Weird graphics? story that's poorly conveyed? Man, I must have weird taste in games, because I thought it was one of the most atmospheric games out there. I thought that the location was so well realized, you could practically smell the damned trees. Combat was great, and every fight felt rewarding. Graphics were damned amazing, with the forest being the most alive of any I've ever seen (that includes Crysis as well). Characters were fun B-Movie fare, with the wise-cracking fat agent friend lightening up the mood with his intentionally crap jokes, and Alan being a genuinely interesting character to follow through and see how his story unfolds. The fact that you, MEsoJD felt compelled to go through it meant that it wasn't horrible (as you stated in earlier post). If a game looks bad, has poor sense of place or lack of atmosphere, if it's pacing is off, or the game mechanics fluctuate between frustrating and downright unresponsive, then that game is a horrible one. If it has no clear concept of what it wants to be, or uses hybrid design of other games without so much as changing the aesthetic to sell more copies. That is horrible game. This game filled me with dread, the darkest areas of the forest creeped me out as I headed into the lighted areas. Going through a town that I could actually see existing made the events of "town gone crazy" seem that much more real, actually made me feel like a living person in an actual area, rather than some space cadet visiting a uncanny depiction of a small cozy town gone mad. The game made me feel like I had a presence. Then again, you have to like Stephen King, or have watched all of "Twin Peaks" to get this sort of fuzzy feeling about it. it's not a shooter, it doesn't take place in space, nor hell. That makes it unique. Therefore, refreshing. And if any game can feel unique and refreshing, it's a game worth experiencing.
@RustedMan I went through it, because I payed for it(might as well get my moneys worth). Something I now regret ofcourse. I like some of Stephen Kings works, and the game mentions his name many times. I think Silent Hill 2 is a much more enjoyable game, that truly gave me dread at times. Instead of typing a wall of text, I suggest you view zero punctuations review of the game, for it pretty much accurately portrays my views on the game. I think the games a mess, and not very unique. That said, it's nice that the game gave you such feelings, but I'm not with you.
Can't wait to see where they go with Alan Wake 2, Alan Wake was amazing and American Nightmare's a great little stopgap title.
Sweet more games to look forward to on PC/PS4 from Remedy. Preferably PC for me. Nice.
Can I have a job? I make a mean coffee...
Please, give me Alan Wake 2! ALan Wake is one of the bet games Ive played this generation.
I agree, Alan Wake is also one of the most underrated games this gen. Makes me wonder why the reason they came out with AWAN maybe to get more ppl to play Alan Wake. The game has a good story, and graphics to match. Remedy won't disappoint.
Alan Wake 2 on the Nextbox/PC? can't wait. :D
I think that Remedy have been spending so long making noir-like games that they should make a more light hearted game as an Xbox360 alternative to Uncharted.
