"we’ve been developing a brand new Remedy game with a new partner."

I wonder which publisher decided to pick up the project/what are the target platforms.

Abash2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

Damn disappointed neither game is an Alan Wake sequel

WickedLester2968d ago

I'm not. Alan Wake was overrated as hell.

MadLad2968d ago

@Wicked

Says you. I found it one of the most interesting new IP of last year.

Christopher2968d ago

@SlapHappyJesus: Well... yeah, he does say that... what type of retort is that?

Personally, I agree with him. They have a ton of potential in games, but I haven't seen anything great out of them since the days of Max Payne.

@Christopher

It's the sort of retort where I dispute the claim that he made. There was no subjectivity involved. Where he makes a base claim that Alan Wake is overrated, at least I insert that my point of view is just that - my point of view. It's the difference between presenting something in subjectivity vs objectivity.
Much like your claim that Remedy is no longer great. While I have yet to play Quantum Break, I found Alan Wake to be a great experience. Much like the original Max Payne games they developed. I feel they are a developer of consistent quality, both in gameplay, and in writing.

@SlapHappyJesus

I understand what you are talking about. You expressed your opinion as an opinion while WickedLester made it sound like his opinion was a fact.

We're all guilty of doing that from time to time, but I honestly try not to state my opinions as facts. Especially if I'm just being negative about something. For example, I think the recent Ratchet and Clank wasn't as good as some of the reviewers thought it was, but I wouldn't go into an article about that game and tell everybody "this game is so overrated". In fact, I doubt you can find any comment by me knocking the game.

I think people that do that sort of thing usually have an axe to grind or some kind of fanboy motive.

freshslicepizza2968d ago

alan wake was an average game with incredible potential. i think they could make it into a great franchise.

If it is not Sony or Nintendo, it will be a 3rd party pusblisher, which mea s it would me multiplat

Kratos0Ace2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

Sony perhaps? Quantum Break sales were not good. They just confirmed that Alan Wake 2 is not one of them.

Kratos0Ace2968d ago

I just loved the disagrees I'm getting. What's the matter, is that what you guys fear?

SniperControl2968d ago

Remedy did visit Naughty Dog last year..............

Utalkin2me2968d ago

Who cares about disagrees. I hope it's not Sony, other then max payne they put out just average stuff.

we4202968d ago

People disagree for no reason on here but they could be disagreeing with your thought of it being Sony

game4funz2968d ago

Actually I would only disagree because it's not often that you hear a dev expanding after a game whose sales flop... Maybe the sales were good enough... I didn't disagree tho

game4funz2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

Fear? They probably disagree with sales or it being Sony?

Why would anyone fear anything like a publisher. And who is you guys? Interesting comment.

_-EDMIX-_2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

@Krato-I mean...even less likely considering why would Sony seek to back a team that just came from a performance like QB?

Sony has shown that they have no love loss if you can't produce the numbers they are looking for and I'm not really sure they even start a project with a team like that.

Also don't even waste a post question folks who disagree, they are free to and no one is just going to simply always get 100% agrees on all post. Just keep doing what you do.

I agree with game4funz too. The disagrees might be coming from the idea that it would be Sony for the reasons I explained above.

Why would they do it from a team with low sales when they've just let go of teams they've known longer for the exact same reason?

MCTJim2968d ago

please provide links with credible proof that QB didnt sell well.

Raven7222967d ago

@game4funz

The thing is, Microsoft paid for Quantum Break up front and their next game has supposedly been in development for a little while. Not only would Quantum Break's sales have no 'negative' effect on Remedy's finances, because they already got paid before the game even released, whoever their new partner is wouldn't have known about Quantum Break's performance until after they paid Remedy for this new project. Pretty much all of Remedy's work over the last two generations has been paid in advance by their publishing partners. Remedy already had the money to expand. They didn't need Quantum Break to sell well.

It sounds like both are new projects/ideas. Still hopeful for Max Payne, though.

It's not something we've come to like from most game studios, but Remedy might be a great studio to tap for a licensed project from a TV/ Movie franchise.

Ravenor2968d ago

Take 2/Rockstar own Max Payne so unless it's being produced with those two it won't be that.

ShottyatLaw2968d ago

Yeah, I'm hoping the "partner" is Rock star.

Zeref2968d ago

Since the new game is developed with a "new partner" I think it's safe to say that one will be multiplatform. Unless MS steps in. And the other game will be another Xbox and PC exclusive.

_-EDMIX-_2968d ago

Could be Take Two again. I wouldn't be shocked.

That's great news from Remedy, I love their games from Max Payne to Quantum Break.

poppinslops2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

I really hope they're working Quantum Break's sequel now, as-opposed to 10 years later (ala Alan Wake)... I want Remedy to use the Ashmore twins for some multiple Jack Joyce madness.

ScorpiusX2968d ago (Edited 2968d ago )

Think its time MS bought Remedy before they make foolish decisions , besides it time to cement this awesome Business Relationship for good .

RedDeadLB2968d ago

What do you think is a foolish decision?
