During a conversation about Remedy's newly announced title Control, a Remedy developer talked about one the studio's past projects, Alan Wake, and the potential of one day returning to it.
Good I want you to make a new Alan Wake game too!
Alan wake is easily one of my top 10 games of last gen. a sequel would be dope.
Yes really was worth the wait and wound up being one of my favorites of last gen as well! Now that's an exclusive!
Good game, but definitely not worth to be at least in my top 100.
@hardiman "Timed exclusive"
Alan Wake game would be awesome.
I really liked the whole concept of the first one but playing it wasn't the greatest. I think with a little extra care and time it could be a very good franchise.
Loved AW make it happen Remedy when you can, I was disappointed in QB.
Yeah. Odd comment! It’s like Valkyrie Chronicles and making all these mobile spinoffs when everyone just wanted a sequel on console. I get that they wanna make new games with new ideas, but ya can’t make a game like Alan Wake and then not make another one for a decade.
shame Microsoft turned down remedy's original pitch for alan wake 2. I would have much rather had alan wake 2 than quantum break
They should see how Control does and think of Alan Wakes future because going multiplatform now it gives them more chances of getting a sequel made. From what I've seen online Alan Wake is owned by Remedy but the publishing rights to Alan Wake is by Microsoft, not sure how true that is but if it is then maybe Remedy can work on a deal or do something like Alan Wake: The Full First Season edition with the added DLC. Then they can work on a sequel to the game.
I think Alan Wake would stand a much better chance at success than something set in the Quantum Break universe. Even if it was on a single platform.
I don’t think this is set in the same universe as Quantum Break Courtney Hope who plays the lead in this was also in Quantum Break as Beth...no way they’d pick the same actress as the lead in this if they were the same Universe
So If you want an Alan Wake game, and we want an Alan Wake game; How come you are making us Quantum Failure and Control and Crossfire?
lol nobody bothered to explain themselves or respond to anything you asked. Everyone just did a quick “f**** you” by tapping on the disagree thing and moved on. Weird.
@Goldenhawk521 Alright then, I disagreed because the article clearly says that he can't say why they haven't done another Alan Wake......It's like a paragraph and half in.....Also because I liked Quantum Break and Control looks awesome so if Remedy keeps making awesome games I could honestly care less what IP it was. So there.
@EDKICK hey, enjoy your game-as-a-service
@RainbowBrite Hey, we have absolutely no evidence that it's GAAS besides one interviewer saying it sounds like it may have GAAS elements to get clicks. If it's truly GAAS I won't play it. I make my decisions on the game itself not a single headline. Maybe me explaining that for the forth or fifth time will help you understand.
It seems every interview Remedy does they say this and yet they come out with another game. Maybe they can't make another because MS really does own the IP.
Alan Wake did lend itself well to being a singular game too though. Maybe there really isn't anywhere to take the narrative. I'd love another one but realistically it's not necessary for the plot. Perhaps they have no idea what to do with it.
Microsoft funded Quantum Break. That was some idiot suit that thought people wanted to see a video as a high profile TV series. The problem with Alan Wake is that Western corporate bigwigs don't see horror games as anything more than a niche market.
@Sirk7x But Phil Spencer and Xbox have said they're game for another Alan Wake that Remedy just has to want to, so clearly there are some behind the scenes issues with it for whatever reason. I doubt Xbox would turn away the good PR for doing another Alan Wake.
I thought the idea of the live action episodes was interesting. I love when developers break the mould and try something niche. I'm glad they tried it. I'm also just glad I can leave it in the past and hope nobody tries to recreate it's failings. I hated Quantum Break
"Quantum Failure" lol, it was hardly a failure - it wasn't the world's next big hit, but it's recognised as a pretty good game. To your second comment: "hey, enjoy your game-as-a-service" I'll let you in on a little secret... Any game that's ever had DLC, paid or free is a game-as-a-service... it's not a new thing...
Its crazy the amount of hate online this game received when it released. And how its completely changed now. I remember it all stemming from it not being fully HD or something like that? http://n4g.com/news/516220/... Lul
Truth be told, it mainly got hate due to being an exclusive. Once the PC version came out (which is the version I played) and some time passed a lot of the hate subsided. When it was a fresh new game a lot of people felt the need to really downplay it any way possible. I always thought it was an excellent game.
But... but N4g was supposed to be a xbot website back in the day! How's that possible? Seriously now, I played this game after TloU and it was for some time the only game that managed to keep me completely engaged because well, TloU is that good and so is this game.
Interesting right? That's what I was always told.
Although completely off-topic and mods will flag you, Alan wake released 4 years after the ps3 came out, the tides had turned people were buying ps3s and the hate was less extreme How about link some articles like the "ps3 is doomed" or "bluray is doomed" or "hddvd to win" that frequented most games sites back then ? Or does that not fit the agenda so being pushed ...🙄
I think it was hated on because Remedy changed what was supposed to be a much bigger open-world game with more player choice and a game to really push PC hardware, into something else. It ended up releasing on Xbox 360 exclusively at first, which pissed off a lot of PC gamers - who I saw blame the Xbox hardware for its "downgrade" and saw it as being robbed of a game on their platform of choice. I suppose it also was hated on for various reasons with it being exclusive to Xbox too from other people. It also didn't help that Xbox fanboys were trying to use Alan Wake as a basis of comparison to Uncharted 2, which is crazy, because we know that Uncharted 2 tears this game in half (I suppose like that one reviewer who called Quantum Break, "Xbox's The Last of Us"). I'm confused though... does one article somehow mean that Xbox prevalence from 2006-2010 wasn't a thing?
Control looks amazing. Can't wait to play it. Reminds me of a nice mix of Alan Wake and Quantum Break.
How does it remind you of Alan Wake??
The supernatural twist of it all
So where is it then?
I would love another Alan Wake. A favorite series of mine.
Then why don't you make one? it doesn't make any sense, it's not like xbox could not use more exclusives games
The one xbox exclusive that caught my interest last gen, actually looked really good. Hope they do a multiplat sequel
Sucked to me but there is definitely potential to change my mind set.
Control look decent, a good action game, but I'm really looking for more of a game with a deep character and story, like Alan Wake, I really hope a sequel happens, but doesn't look like anytime soon.
Alan Wake was an amazing game. That's all I came to say lol.
Lets take our rose tinted glasses off now, AW was interesting, but it was neither the game Remedy wanted to make (an open world game) nor was its story making any sense. It was, like TLOU, Quantum Break or Uncharted, interesting at first, then it became shoot-run-run-storybreak-run-r un-shoot-storybreak etc. If You step back and look at that format, You'll understand it leads nowhere, its neither action adventure, not action, nor adventure, as all You do is endure the action parts to get to the next story segment. I have yet to meet someone who skipped the story in these games to get to the next action sequence, because the action was so great.
With current MS buying out studios for the next gen I think we might see an Alan Wake sequel sooner than later.
Sony needs to acquire these guys, they truly have potential. Since MS got NT, Sony needs to acquire Remedy and let them make linear action adventure cinematic experience.
Alan wake, blue dragon, lost odyssey, and the last remnant were the only reasons I bought a 360 later on in its life cycle. Those games were fantastic. Blue dragon was a great jrpgs I wish more would go with that graphical style
I don't want it A new Max Payne (not like part 3) would be great.
That's good... Just don't shoot yourself in the foot and choose to be bought for exclusivity rights to you know who. That'll be a great way to ruin the potential of this game.
A sequal is needed
