So when’s Alan Wake 2? Remedy Entertainment has an array of beloved titles in its back catalog, ranging from the darkness-busting adventures of Alan Wake to the bullet time neo-noir of Max Payne. Rockstar Games ended up releasing Max Payne to a mixed response from fans in 2012, though hopes remain high for a proper Alan Wake sequel.
Remedy does own the rights to Alan Wake, and the studio loves the series as much as the fans do, according to Mikael Kasurinen. The series is “very dear to us and close to our hearts,” Kasurinen says. “We all love Alan Wake at Remedy and I think all of us want to see a new Alan Wake game.”
Someday, perhaps, our list of upcoming PC games can house Alan Wake 2. But not today.
Unfortunately, Kasurinen tells DualShockers that he can’t confirm any future plans for Alan Wake, but adds that “we all want to see it happen, absolutely.”
The original Alan Wake took an array of inspirations from Stephen King to Twin Peaks and spun them into a pretty bonkers story built around unique shooting mechanics all about battling shadows. The story was never quite resolved, even by the American Nightmare spin-off, and fans have been eager for a proper sequel ever since.
Of course, Remedy’s been teasing out their love for Alan Wake as far back as Quantum Break, though obviously those teases haven’t panned out so far. The studio’s latest project is Control, which expands the linear design Remedy is known for with sidequests and open Metroidvania world.
Control sounds pretty cool in its own right, but I can’t help but feel for Alan Wake fans – especially with the original game now delisted from Steam. We won’t hear more until the Control release date (at least), but know that the folks at Remedy love our unlikely writer hero, too. Though when that love will actually manifest is anyone’s guess.
