Remedy is currently hiring quite a few positions for a new AAA title.
Alan Wake 2
I think its about that time for the sequel to be announced. especially since quantum break is pretty much ready for launch this year. and xbox gamers have been requesting it for some time now.
Agreed. They had some really cool concepts in Alan Wake and it was a great first outing I loved pplaying through. Just like some other franchises start off a bit rough, like Assasin's Creed, the potential for A. Wake 2 is significant.
You never know with remedy. They know there are alot of people that want alan wake 2 but they like making new ips. I dont care either way i trust them to bring a good experience.
Very true. Sam Lake did blatantly confirm Alan Wake 2 though.
Alan Wake 2 but don't be surprised if its something totally new.
Hoping for a multiplat release from them for the next game. Remedy owns the Alan Wake ip don't they? I know that MS owns Quantum Break but I haven't played a Remedy game since Max Payne...love their work and would love to have a shot at their next game if they could keep their quality levels up for a multiplat I see no reason why they shouldn't test the waters out. Either way I can't wait to hear word on QB...that game is the one that will push me to grab an XBO if it turns out as good as it is sounding...then hopefully Alan Wake will be BC compatible then and I can finally check that game out.
I would love for Remedy to try their hand at another Max Payne.
Yeah...but if they do it has to be Max Payne 3 and ignore Rockstars Good game but it wasn't Max Payne at all. The majority of stuff which made the game Max Payne was gone in Max Payne 3. Atmosphere, the setting, location, the designs (excluding flashbacks), the music, Mona and the like were gone.
I wholeheartedly agree, the gameplay was impressive however the story was disappointing and they tried way too hard to make Max Payne edgy. My angriest moment was when how they wrote off Mona as just a "fling" after everything that happened. I really hope the series gets the ending it truly deserves someday. Also Rute, I already know that Rockstar has the rights but it doesn't hurt to dream a little. :]
Yeah Max Payne 3 didn't give the noir and atmospheric experience the first 2 did. Probably because Remedy just develops games differently than Rockstar. Max Payne was one of my favorite games on the original Xbox.
@Kyosuke_Sanada I know right. It feels Rockstar were making a new IP set in Brazil and thought "Shit, we've got Max Payne 3....I KNOW lets just turn this new IP into Max Payne and add flashback parts so it feels more like the old game"
Max Payne 3 was a good game. You guys are idiots. NOT EVERY GAME has to be exactly like it's predecessors. That's the problem with gamers. Stop complaining every time a developer decides to switch things up, esp. when the product turns out as good as Max Payne 3. You guys are like, it's not dark like the other ones. WHO GIVES A SH_T. Is the game any good? That is the only thing that should matter. I don't know why you guys want the same games over and over anyway.
"Max Payne 3 was a good game" No one is saying it wasn't...it was a shit Max Payne game "NOT EVERY GAME has to be exactly like it's predecessors" Urm...yeah it does when it comes to style, tone, themes, characters development etc Max Payne 3 felt like a new game, not a sequel. If you are fine with this happening to franchises then you are part of the problem of why developers don't risk more new IPs these days but change franchises into something they aren't. "WHO GIVES A S***" Us..actual bloody fans who fell in love with a series because of what made the game so special.
I think that's not going to happen as Rockstar owns the rights to the Max payne franchise these days.
Been waiting years for Alan wake 2
ALAN WAKE 2 AAAHHHHHHH
Now you gotta wonder, is this new AAA already contracted under Microsoft, or, will Sony's platform be graced with its presence. I'll give them credit, they do make interesting looking games, but with that with regard, they're not interesting enough to buy another system for, so I welcome any game from them on PS4. Hope they have much success with Quantum Break this year. Edit: 9+ gamers don't want QB to have success it seems, that's unfortunate.
Or they think a remedy game is worth buying a console for... maybe? but continue on your fanboy ways
I guess they forgot how to post a comment.. Some people would lose their mind if websites got rid of the disagree button LMAO
They want QB to be an amazing hit Its this part that they don't want to ever see happen as long that Remedy & MS are partners ........ will Sony's platform be graced with its presence. Personally i agree with those gamers...
Alan Wake 2...finally Hell I'd even take an Alice Wake game :)
lol me too.
I loved the first game. Probably one of my top 10-15 games last gen. They are such amazing storytellers. I love that whenever Phil recently tweeted about playing the game through, that the first thing he mentioned was how amazing Remedy was at weaving stories. I can't wait to experience Quantum Break. You were a big Alan Wake fan as well I take it?
Oh yeah...despite the game looking good it's why I was disappointed with them doing Quantum Break all of a sudden. The story in Alan Wake is left unfinished. I just found Phil a little hypocritical when he spoke about Alan Wake in such a good light because why didn't he let them do a sequel. Sam Lake wanted to so I don't know what made them do a new IP when there's a story left to tell in Alan Wake. It feels like they were told to do a new IP since Alan Wake didn't sell as well as they had hoped. I mean you had American Nightmare which was alright but felt off...it turned up the action like Microsoft wanted that to see if would gain more sales/attention.
Remedy is still a relatively small studio with long game development times so the game might be a launch title for next gen Xbox. However, if it's Alan Wake 2, they may have thought the story and gameplay through ages ago, leading to shorter development process.
"However, if it's Alan Wake 2, they may have thought the story and gameplay through ages ago, leading to shorter development process." Along with extensive experience and knowledge of how to program XB1, alan wake 2 might only be 18 away at most. Thats assuming they have thought out the story progression since AW1 and have developed the mechanics further. I would expect it to look better than QB too.
I doubt it they be making games for ps4 I don't think I've seen them do one as there under Microsofts paycheck
I can see them making a multiplatform game and Alan Wake being exclusive to Xbox and Windows 10.
They are doing just fine as they are ,no need to do anything else.
Sorry. I misread a comment.
AHHHHH man i hope its Alan Wake 2!
I love the stories of there games.
Max Payne or Alan Wake would be awesome. Had a blast playing Alan Wake a few years ago.
I hope it's Alan Wake 2 :D! I mean, they already pulled the rug under us when they announced QB (which looks amazing but still) instead of AW2 and acknowledge that, so I'm sure they wouldn't do that again right? RIGHT?!
