Remedy: Alan Wake 2 is a possibility

Remedy: Alan Wake 2 is a possibility

Alan Wake 2 is a possibility, says Remedy, though it will depend on how well the first game does.

Remedy Studios has indicated that it may well look to develop a sequel to upcoming mystery title Alan Wake, though it admits that it will mostly depend on whether the first game is successful or not.

Writing on the official forums (via Eurogamer), Remedy's Mikko Rautalahti said that it was "really up in the air" at the moment, since the first game isn't even out yet.

Remedy does have high hopes though, no doubt buoyed by positive advance reviews which suggest good things for the finished product. Unfortunately, our own copy of Alan Wake has been sadly delayed so we haven't had a chance to look at it since our Alan Wake preview.

"Clearly, it's been a critical success; the fact that some people feel differently about it doesn't change the fact that of the scores listed in the first post of this thread, there are eight perfect scores, and over 40 give us a 9 or a better," said Mikko.

"Only 7 reviews have given us a score of less than 8. That tells us in no uncertain terms that there's a lot of love for Alan Wake out there, and we'd have to be complete goddamn idiots to not be satisfied with that."

"I mean, sure, the next time, we definitely hope to top that, it's nice to have something to aim for, but we're pretty damn far from disappointed."

While plans for a sequel will depend on how well the first game sells, Mikko said that the Alan Wake team is already at work on the DLC.

Whether or not the success of the game will influence the chances of a PC release for Alan Wake remains to be seen.

I'd rather them not jump the gun and just port it to the PC like they planned to all along first... but that's just me.

Whatever, go and get the Max Payne 3 project back from Rockstar before it's too late.

I'm curious, when a game is in development for as long as Alan Wake was - how many copies does it have to sell before it's profitable?

I predict the sequel will be set to release in 2012 for the 360 -- then they will delay it to 2014. By that time, they will decide to simultaneously release it for the PS4 and the Xbox 720 - but wait! The game is just too intimately built to the PS4, so it's goodbye xbox, and hello ps4 exclusive.

The game is pretty dissappointing after 5 years, and what they originally planned it to be. I blame MS for this TBH, they are desperate for more exclusives as the PS3 has gained momentum and has been outselling the 360 year over year WW for quite awhile now.

PC version or you don't get a dime from me Remedy. Yes I do have a 360 but I don't support PC devs/pub who for whatever reason decide not to develop their newer titles for PC.

XBOX 360 WW Sold 32,517,864
PS3 WW Sold 25,099,219
Wii WW Sold 52,590,198

Where did you get your figures from since the above accurate count puts it some 7,500,000 short?

@mastorofpuppetz: I agree, AW might have been a great game in 2007-2008, but after 5+ years of development it just fells like Max Payne meets the Secret Window with boring and predictable zomb-enemies, an annoying sidekick, low quality textures (damn you xbox) and an ending made just to sell DLC. Its so bad that I expect Max Payne: Samba Tragedy to be a better game.

HUH? LMAo 25 million, are those over a year old, i should ask you where you got those terribly outdated figures.

http://www.vgchartz.com/

The PS3 went from 8 million behind to 4, and it keeps shrinking. Week on week checkl this site, PS3 gains every single week, and even at times in MS home territory the US, depending on the week. Europe and Japan are no contest for Sony right now and have been for ages.

Only a matter of time before the PS3 surpasses the 360. If you factor in the 1 year head start, the PS3 has outsold the 360 in the same timeframe, despite being more expensive.

you understand the difference between week on week versus overall right? 360 is ahead (Thanks to a 1 year head start and Sony screwing up the PS3 launch) but losing weekly, the PS3 is catching up.

I hope one will get better guns in this sequel >.<

I just hope they don't take as long as they did with the original, if they make the sequel. I might be dead before then!

Still waiting on the PC release (yes, I said "the") along with the rest of my peers.... I'm not going to purchase an entire console just for one game especially one that didn't get the stellar reviews that everyone expected it to get. I've got my new rig at home just waiting for it.

Both your precious PS3 and Xbox 360 are STILL getting their ass whipped by the god that is the Wii.

If Micro$uck want to make their money back they will release a PC version and Alan Wait 2 will be the open world version it was originally supposed to be on PC. 360 owners only care about Halo just review the Mass Effect 2 numbers for proof.

Never once mentioned the Wii, I said 360, we all know captn obvious the crap wii is selling to soccer moms all over the world, point? The Wii is a perfect example of sales not equaling quality, but thanks for the obvious tid bit that is totally irrelevant to what i said.

But eh, if your actually not a gamer the Wii may be your little toy that no one buys games for.
