Alan Wake 2 still could happen at Remedy
Alan Wake could still get a proper sequel.
Alan Wake developer Remedy has always planned on adding to the series.
“For Alan Wake, from the get-go, we assumed there was going to be a sequel and we mapped things further out when it came to character, story, details and focus changes,” Remedy creative director Sam Lake told Polygon.
“Near the end of Alan Wake, we were sitting down and talking about the sequel and where we should be taking it, on a detailed level. More or less straight from getting Alan Wake shipped, we were working on a sequel and planning on a sequel.”
The sequel would have included a new mechanic whereby players could rewrite the world around them, and continue the story from the cliffhanger ending of the original.
Lake said some time ago that it wasn’t the right time for a sequel, but in this new interview confirmed that he wants to work on it one day – maybe when Quantum Break wraps.
“We are in a place where we are starting to look into the future and starting to have discussions about what is next,” he said.
“Among other things, we are discussing the possibility of an Alan Wake sequel with multiple partners, but nothing has been decided.
“I would love to do that. It feels that time has only refined the ideas of what the sequel would be, which is great. It’s almost, in some ways and on some level, that all of this extra time to think it about it has made it tastier and more exciting.”
