Appearance Alan Wake isn’t done shining his flashlight on the darkness creatures. After making a lasting impressions on me (Alan Wake is one of my top 10 of the current generation) I’m glad to hear that Remedy has more Alan Wake adventures for me to enjoy. The catch is that it won’t be in the form of a sequel nor a DLC chapter. So what the hell is left? A movie, TV show…all the options I can currently think of. Remedy confirmed the news to Joystiq in a statement earlier today.
Fans of the franchise will be excited to learn that yes, more Wake is coming! But to be absolutely certain to avoid confusion, this next Wake installment will not be Alan Wake 2. But neither will it be DLC. The rest we’re saving for our official announcement when we’ll actually SHOW YOU.
We are really excited about this project which a slice of our team has been working on for the last months. It’s something that’ll definitely give more to the Wake fans out there, but just as importantly, this installment will also give an opportunity for players who aren’t familiar with the franchise to finally jump on board.
We can’t wait to show you more, bear with us. Release dates, platforms and pricing are unconfirmed as of yet, but Fall 2011 is probably a good guess. More coming soon!
So there you have it. I’m definitely eager to hear more and to know what this project could be. I expect Remedy to hold the big reveal until Microsoft’s E3 conference so I guess Microsoft does have a few surprises up their sleeves.
Are you looking forward to more Alan Wake? What do you think this project is if it isn’t DLC or a sequel? Let me know.
