Alan Wake was one of 2010 top games. This survival horror game starred writer Alan Wake and was set in the US town of Bright Falls, where our protagonist had to fight poltergeists and undead folk known as The Taken.
The game’s thrilling action and story surely kept many hooked until the end, meaning it’s likely many players worldwide were hoping Finish developer Remedy Entertainment would announce a sequel someday.
And it’s clear that at some point an Alan Wake sequel was in the pipeline, as Remedy revealed an Alan Wake 2 concept video back in 2015, showing its ideas for a sequel that never materialized.
Also, a TV show based on the game was announced last year, and at that time Remedy reiterated its intention of making another Alan Wake game in the future.
“It needs to be done right if it’s ever done. Everything needs to click into place, which is really hard to make it happen. So many things, for these big games to be greenlit, need to be aligned. But I’m hoping that someday…”, said Lake.
Remedy’s boss also admitted that the “bar is higher” these days – surely an Alan Wake sequel would be a big undertaking and demand a big budget if it were made today. Also, Remedy is now busy putting the finishing touches on Control, its surreal third-person game which is slated for release later next month.
Control could very well end up being another hit for Remedy, and if so is the case here’s hoping that we see another Alan Wake game someday, as this surely is a cult classic that deserves a sequel.
