Alan Wake Sequel Could Be In The Works According To A Recent Statement From Remedy
Fans of Remedy Entertainment were delighted to see the company make a showing at this year’s E3 with the mind-bending title Control. The video that was shown looked incredible, offering a look into a world that is certainly warped, but wholly in line with what the studio is known for. That said, it brought up questions about another well-known Remedy property, Alan Wake, and if we’ll ever see a sequel.
Originally released in 2010, Alan Wake saw quite a bit of success. The psychological thriller was praised for just about every aspect, ranging from its overall look to the compelling plot. A stand-alone entry, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, was released two years later, but no sequel has come to fruition. However, in addition to fans wanting it to happen, the team over at Remedy also would like it to happen.
“So we own the Alan Wake IP, yes,” Remedy’s Mikael Kasurinen recently told Dualshockers. “I just want to say right away that it’s very dear to us and close to our hearts. We all love Alan Wake at Remedy and I think all of us want to see a new Alan Wake game. I just want to say that out loud. Unfortunately, I can’t speak to it anymore than that. We’ll see what happens with Alan Wake next but we all want to see it happen, absolutely.”
For those not familiar with Alan Wake, here’s more from the game’s Steam page:
“When the wife of the best-selling writer Alan Wake disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A Dark Presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love.
Presented in the style of a TV series, Alan Wake features the trademark Remedy storytelling and pulse-pounding action sequences. As players dive deeper and deeper into the mystery, they’ll face overwhelming odds, plot twists, and cliffhangers. It’s only by mastering the Fight With Light combat mechanic that they can stay one step ahead of the darkness that spreads across Bright Falls.”
We know that Alan Wake fans and devs alike would love to see a sequel in the future, but until any official word makes its way into the world, we’ll just have to wait.
