Speaking at Gamescom 2014, Remedy Creative Director Sam Lake told XBA that the studio is looking for opportunities to return to the nightmarish series, “when the time is right”.
You'd make a lot fans happy. So long as we know it's a possibility.
I would probably end up having to get an XB1.. Alan Wake is one of my favorite games from last gen.
Same here. really enjoyed that game. I'm guessing they will start working on AW2 as soon as QB is done.
the best 2 horror games in the last generation is is ALAN WAKE and DEAD SPACE 1 . i really hope they do it so good like the first alan wake .
Well, Remedy and the Alan Wake franchise have a lot of fans on PC. Hopefully they won't forsake us PC fans. I would love to see Alan Wake 2 come out and be able to play it on PC.
me too.. would save me from buying an X1. But I could understand why MS would only want it on the consoles. Would force people to actually buy the thing.
Also one of my favorites from last gen!
Dont worry im sure Microsoft will fund it :P And i hope they do, Alan wake honestly has such an amazing story, and is such a good game.
If only MS would just buy Remedy. They'd be an epic studio to have. Bolster their work force and then have two teams running games like Alan Wake and Quantum Break.
They might do that if quantum break is a success.
@Opie Certain affinity and Playground too. MS needs to grab these guys. Its nice to see them opening new studios though but these guys are already proven talents and they develop only on xbox. @bonkers MS will definitly fund it. In an interview with polygon late last year,sam lake said they didn't just want to create a sequel,he said the team at remedy needed to create a true sequel to AW,according to him,they were still coming up with great ideas&new concepts for a sequel and once they've come up with enough ideas they would probably start work on AW2.
It's a beautiful game. I completed it on 360 the purchased it on steam a while later. I don't have an xbox one, but I might be inclined to purchase one if they make this game.
Pleaaase bring it to PS4 if it will come. Alan Wake is one of my favorite games of all time.
I disagree...MS needs to continue backing Remedy and pushing exclusives like Alan Wake/Quantum Break from them. They get full funding for their projects and build a fanbase. Each console NEEDS it's exclusives. Otherwise competition dies. Besides... if MS got Remedy under their belt they'd be a serious contender with some of Sonys top studios like Naughty Dog.
They have a very strong relationship with MS. Remedy and MS would be a good fit though. http://community.remedygame...
If they really backed Remedy they would of let them do Alan Wake 2 straight away, instead they got told to do a new IP. I'm guessing because Alan Wake didn't sell very well, for them anyway.
@opie I totally agree with you man. MS definitly needs to keep backing up these guys. They've got a very good relationship going with MS and with Phil Spencer there now i believe the relationship will only get stronger. I think we will see a sequel to Alan wake this gen and maybe it will even come bundled with a remastered version of the original. : )
i hope they release it like the first one on PC . those games looks awesome on it .
@Foxtrot It has been said by Remedy themselves that they wanted to do a new IP and MS fully backed them on it. They said when they have the right idea and time they will return to Alan Wake.
IP owned by MS.
Yes..... please do! Avid ps4 owner here, fully hyped for quantum break. News of an Alan wake 2 Is up there with uncharted!
Great game. Does Alan Wake franchise belong to Microsoft?
No, it belongs to Remedy I believe.
Yes, They own the IP and trademark.
Well if you own the rights and clearly MS doesn't care do what Platinum Games did and go look for another publisher. I'm sure Sony or even Nintendo would give you as much money as you wanted to ensure the games development. The first was awesome and fans are begging for answers with a sequel so if MS doesn't care about fans screw them.
...what?? So instead of allowing them to do something different with a new IP and not rush out the gate with a sequel , that makes MS not care about fans?? "Dont take your time with a sequel to alan wake! We want rushed story and gameplay!"
No MS has made it clear they Dont want a new Alan wake because of sales. They can take their time and develop it but release it on a platform where fans can get it. MS isn't going to help but someone will.
When did MS make this clear? And can you provide a link for that? MS is rereleasing an original xbox game phantom dust that tanked in sales next year.
ONe of those games where I was always outnumbered and outgunned. And Ill never forget being chased by a tornado in the dark. I was hoping for more DLC for the first game, but that never turned up. Hopefully when the sequel happens we get loads. in the meantime... Im looking forward to quantum break. interesting gameplay elements from what I have seen. And I love the visual effects. These guys always do a good mix of story and gameplay mechanics. love their games.
Well said on the outnumbered and outgunned thing. I never thought of it that way. Probably the reason I love The Last of Us so much too- it's always you with almost no resources again 5-8 really capable, hard-as-nails guys. You have to play really dirty to win. A.Wake nailed that edge-of-your-seat survival gameplay too.
oh god yes. Alan wake was one the best but underrated games of last gen
Seems pretty easy to me. Ask MSFT for a big check to make it Xbox exclusive.
Doubt MS would need to do that, They own the IP.
pretty good news they got the first game out of the way and started off slow but gained quite a following. i think they said they sold 3m copies of alan wake. if they continued with the ip and make it better and better it could get up to games like uncharted.
Alan Wake was fun and creepy.
Quantum Break Sales Success = MS Deal for Alan Wake 2!
To be honest if they're going to make a Alan Wake 2, then they really need to just be bought out by MS so MS can make them two teams. Because I don't want to have to wait 5 years for a Quantum Break sequel.
WOW... make it Cloudy
I don'y know if we need Alan Wake 2. I would love to see it but it looks like they are going to move forward with Quantum Break
yes times a hundred and maybe even throw in a remastered alan wake with it please do this remedy
As long as it came to PC eventually like the first one, I'd be fine with it being out on XB1 first.
I hope so, the last two were brilliant and I hope Poets of the Fall return too.
ms you're always saying how you wanted a game to match up to uncharted well here it is
