I was in the chat. Won I am Awake T-shirt! Awesome questions and answers! They said that they already have a spefific release date, but they do not want to annouce it.

Damn, we can all ready tell that there's going to be a *itch of a cliff hanger in the end like how they did Ass Creed games, huh? Guess, we wont get the whole story in one game. I hope it's better than Silent Hill 2.

Yeah..lol

If it takes another 5-6 years to create a sequel, this will be a long lasting game. A decade and a half trilogy. One trilogy that will span 2 gens of Xboxes?

I'm sure the next in the series will come easier. Very few games require a whole new engine for every game. Unreal Engine 3 still has code from the first Unreal game. And that's ancient by our standards.

dustgavin3191d ago

It already is a long running series called Alone in the Dark.

Wee!! Let's run around in the dark to mask the horrible graphics and point flashlights at monsters to kill them!

Rockox3191d ago

You hope it's better than Silent Hill 2? If it is, it will be the greatest survival horror story EVER.

AnttiApina3191d ago

Alan Wake is not a horror game, it is a Thriller.

By the way, about the developing times:

Remember Max Payne,the previous project by Remedy?

1st game: nearly 6 years in the making
2nd game: about 2 years.

Even though earlier today they said it will have "a conclusive and satisfactory ending," I'm still saying: Cliffhanger ending confirmed!

Saaking3191d ago

I still hope they release the PC version eventaully. THAT was the version that everyone was hyping up and the version that truly looked amazing. The 360 looks fine, but imo it underwhelms. Don't get me wrong, I'm buying the game day 1 becuase it seems really interesting; however, compared to what was promised it's not even close.

Nice. I want so new gameplay footage!

MetalGearRising3191d ago

Don't worry about SALES Remedy just remember games coming out on xbox360 and that my friend is good enough reason SALES will sky rocket after all we xbox360 owners are known for buying games and supporting developers.

360hasnogamesfor20103191d ago

i lol this...

game gonna flop in sales mark my words ;)

Solidus187-SCMilk3191d ago (Edited 3191d ago )

ahha NO ONE besides sony fanboys want a button press adventure for $60. That game might have a slightly better chance if it were on the wii.

Oh I forgot to mention:

HAHAHHAHA FACE IT PS3 SUX AND NOONE CARES, GO TALK UP SONY(in the empty ps3 exclusive articles) AND HAVE THE PS3rd circle jerk in the sony articles. WHATS WRONG WITH TALKING IN THE SONY ARTICLES? I KNOW, NOONE CARES ENOUGH ABOUT THEIR CRAP PS3 GAMES, EVERYONE IS IN THE 360 ARTICLES>

The 360 games will be great, and will crush all ps3 crap. Face it, FAR MORE PEOPLE ENJOY HALO THEN ENJOY ALL PS3 EXCLUSIVES COMBINED. SORRY, HALO IS MORE LIKED AND PLAYED THEN THE ps3 ITSELF.

PS3RD for life, PLAY BACKWARDS AND BEHIND WITH THE PS3RD.

OmarJA-N4G3191d ago

Indeed, this game will flop in sales after all the bots only buy shooter games.

Udidntlistenpunk3191d ago

From the looks of it, aint gonna happen.

It sure does suck to be an xbot.

starchild3191d ago

Yeah, it will do great on the 360.

36T3191d ago

I think it'll do just fine for the type of game it is. I'm thinking 2-3 mil lifetime? anybodys guess i suppose. day 1 for me.
