Gamespy: Finland-based developer Remedy, creator of Alan Wake, has been talking about a sequel for the psychological thriller since the Xbox 360 exclusive launched in May. But publisher Microsoft, which holds an option on a sequel, is taking a wait-and-see approach.
Was it the sales? It was probably the sales. It wasn't that strong if I'm not mistaken. Hell, where were the advertisements?
MS needs a game like Alan Wake simply because it has some sort of variety in comparison to the stereotypical image of the 360 being a shooter console. It's a good way to promote "games for everyone".
And like any other game a sequel is a great way to grow even bigger and better. MS should give them the chance. I mean, without ICO we wouldn't have Shadow of the Colossus, so to speak. I hope MS wouldn't kill the game simply because it's not profiting as much as they wanted it to. I understand it's a business, but having more games doesn't hurt the image. In comparison Sony's ethic has been much more embracing from what I've heard (from guys like Insomniac and David Jaffe). MS really needs to do it for the good of the gamers but if the profits aren't there I won't be surprised if MS turns their backs. Is it possible for AW2 to come to PS3?
i hope MS droped this game.
I just didn't like this game, honestly,this game is boring. this game could possibly be the most boring game i have ever played. the long walks through the forest and repetive enemy jumps out and kill. the gameplay was VERY boring..
Ps Alan wake is pretty much a total copy off the ORIGANL alone in the dark
Alan Wake is a really good game. Sure it has flaws but the atmosphere and style was something to be experienced.
You can blame Microsoft for not advertizing but you also have to blame 360 owners for living up to their "FPS only" stereotype.
I was very excited for Alan Wake but I'm holding out hope for a PC version even if it's *gulp* GFWL....
after the success of Heavy Rain(it sold more than a million while Alan Wake is not even half way there) i suggest you to turn to Sony
