Speaking during a live chart session Remedy Entertainment has revealed it hopes its upcoming psychological thriller Alan Wake will become a long-running franchise, but admits this will depend on how well it does.
So we'll see the next Alan Wake around 2016ish? TGSI
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.
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!
You hope it's better than Silent Hill 2? If it is, it will be the greatest survival horror story EVER.
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!
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!
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.
i lol this... game gonna flop in sales mark my words ;)
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.
Indeed, this game will flop in sales after all the bots only buy shooter games.
From the looks of it, aint gonna happen. It sure does suck to be an xbot.
Yeah, it will do great on the 360.
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.
lol, yeah a long running Franchise. With the following title hitting around the same time the next xbox's life span is about to end.
You realize that accounts for most "long-running" franchises? They usually span multiple consoles...
The only game thats gonna FLOP this year is heavy rain.LOL QTE yay
remedy or microsofts?
Remedy owns the ip. Microsoft is publishing it .
- Alan is so badass with his flashlight.He beats up all those bad boogymen! Too bad the graphics are generic -
I would guess the reason they canceled the PC version is to NOT over shadow the XBOX360 interms of graphics.
They should put some aliens & laser guns if they want it to be a long-running franchise on the 360.
Like in Resistance you mean? Difference being that no laser guns or aliens in the world could make a PS3 franchise succesful.
Alan Wake looks better than Heavy Rain and that is on top of the fact that it is a much more open world with actual action gameplay, instead of tightly controlled environments and camera angles and tons of QTE.
noone wants to play a point and click QTE adventure, and soon you delusional people will see that.
- I fail at trolling? Okay.I'll have to step it up alot more than! All your 360 brethren can thank you for the increase of my comments :) -
You PS3rd fans seriously need to find something to do. How about checking out the PS3 section or playing a game from time to time?!! Now that's a great idea! I don't care who buys the game as long as there's a copy for me :D
- Says the guy always trolling the PS3 section.. What are you, a living oxymoron? -
HES SUCH A FANBOY HE DOENSNT REALISE HES IN THE 360 SECTION NOT THE PS3rd section.
Hate to crush your dreams Remedy but I can tell you right now that it won't.
- I've never read words so true -
Are you two butt buddies?
- Strange how 360 fanboys are always so quick to blurt out homosexual references.. All that time you guys spend in those private cross game chat rooms.. It makes me truly question your sexuality. LOL! I always wondered why bots cherish that cross game chat feature so much.It's allll starting to make sense now.. -
If you two butt buddies don't own a 360 why are you even in here? No new blu-ray movies to watch lately I guess.
Wouldn't make sense spending so many years developing an engine just to make only one game on it.
Well, after 5 year of development I am sure the game will be nitpicked on every small detail, and criticised even if it offers twice the content, 1080p resolution, a ton of gameplay features, the best lighting and physics... Hold on, this isnt Gran Turismo 5? Should be ok with a average game with weak graphics then, still enough for a 10 from EDGE and Eurogamer Edited to add: I still think its more likely to be a great game than an average one, though the graphics may not be cutting edge because of being in development for so long. This and Mass Effect 2 are the two best games on 360 in 2010 imo
Everyone always shows trailers and cries about how great the graphics are and how PS3 can't do it; that is cool, but the graphics aren't amazing. Bloom and super pitch dark with fog? Come on. I also didn't say it looked ugly, looks good.
Everyone? nobody said the PS3 couldnt do the game. I guess you take the opinion of people on N4G @ heart.
You're not excited for this game because you don't like the graphics..
- When i look at alan wake, i can't help but think of a bad PC port of alone in the dark.Only, with worse textures -
Alan wake:Inferno? AHAHAHAHAAAA !!!! the only way its gunna sell at all is if they either make it a FPS,or add some pink aliens with space ships and bieng able to jump 100ft in the air. 360 cheerladers... they only buy Shooters MUAHAHAHAHAAA!!!!!!!!
No.. please don't start running your mouth, Remedy.
Yea ok Remedy and were is the PC version ? oh yea thats right you have put it on hold. idiots
yeah they need to pull thier finger out and start developing a bit quicker, otherwise no one will remember what happend in the last game for the big gaps in develolpment
Here's to Alan Wake 2 in 2017!
NAH NAH NAH! IT SUCKS SO HARDER LIKE ALONE IN THE DARK!
