Alan Wake Might Be Coming to Xbox One, Sequel Could Make it to PS4
Talks are already under way between Microsoft and Remedy Entertainment to bring Alan Wake to the Xbox One, Sam Lake, Remedy’s chief creative officer told Polygon.
“I would love that to happen,” Lake said. “Nothing has happened yet, but we are discussing this possibility with Microsoft.
“I hope it happens, we’ll see.”
Lake also mentioned that if Alan Wake was to make it to the Xbox One, all of the DLC would make it as well, but he added that there is no possibility of the game making it to other platforms.
Earlier this week Remedy released a video of the 2010 prototype to Polygon, which was used to pitch Alan Wake 2 to a number of publishers. The game never happened but Sam Lake mentioned that once Quantum Break wraps up, Remedy would love to return to Alan Wake for a sequel.
If Microsoft doesn’t pick up the sequel for the Xbox One, there are different opportunities available today.
“Ultimately, these things are business decisions,” Lake said.
“We are definitely not ruling anything out and looking at different opportunities, but nothing is set in stone at the moment.”
An Alan Wake sequel could make it to a whole different platform that did not have the original game.
“When it comes to sequels it’s our thing, we can do whatever makes sense and what’s best for the franchise overall,”Lake said.
“But obviously it depends on many different things. I think that regardless of the platform, a good sequel — while it continues the story of the original one — it’s still something that someone who hasn’t played the original one can enjoy and jump on board and dive into the setting and the world and enjoy themselves.
“It’s not like a potential sequel of Alan Wake would be only something that someone who has already played everything in the Alan Wake franchise can enjoy.”
As a big fan of the original Alan Wake, I have to admit that I would love a sequel. Quantum Break’s delay to 2016, was a bit disappointing, but should prove beneficial to the game’s development. Remedy is an incredibly competent developer, and Quantum Break certainly looks as one of the most promising titles in the Xbox One exclusive line up.
Lets hope that when the game wraps ups, there is some serious consideration for and Alan Wake sequel, and that a big publisher gets behind the project. Quantum Break is expected to release in 2016 exclusively on the Xbox One. We will bring you any new information on Alan Wake projects as well as Quantum Break, as soon as it becomes available.
