Re: Alan Wake

If it's not a sequel and it's not DLC, what is it?

Re: Alan Wake

a movie! (probably not though, just wishful thinking)

or maybe a spinoff game playing as a different character (like Barry)

Re: Alan Wake

The phrasing makes it sound like it's going to be a rail shooter like Dead Space Extraction, but I'm not sure that would make sense on the 360 unless they're doing it with the Kinect somehow.

I keep hoping this'll get ported to PC.

Re: Alan Wake

G4 is saying there are no details about it yet but the next Wake game will be an XBLA release.

Re: Alan Wake

Sounds like it's a Night Springs game.

Re: Alan Wake

If there is any truth to this rumor, I guess they're at least doing good with the lead time. I seem to recall everybody being blown away by the original teaser, but they the game was tied up in development for years. By the time it came out the graphics weren't that revolutionary.

Quote:
Rumors of an Alan Wake sequel have been circling about since ... well, since Alan Wake and its DLC expansions left the door wide open for one. But also since the phrase "Alan Wake 2" first appeared on an artist's resume back in May. Developer Remedy confirmed with Joystiq that it was working on more Wake, though "this next Wake installment will not be Alan Wake 2," it said. "But neither will it be DLC." How appropriately mysterious! And now a rumor from Xbox World magazine says that Remedy is indeed working on Alan Wake 2, for the next-gen Xbox.

"We hear a number of Microsoft-friendly developers are hard at work on prepping next gen games as we speak. Could this be the reason why Remedy are so quiet about Alan Wake 2? (Yes)," the magazine responded to itself. "Rare, Lionhead and Turn 10 all have teams in place too. Rare, we hear, are even prototyping ideas for a new 'mature title,'" the mag adds.

We spoke with Microsoft Studios chief Phil Spencer at E3 this year, who said he read about the project on Joystiq and had no involvement with it at that time. "I think the stuff they're doing now they wanted to incubate, Mattias and the team," Spencer said. "They wanted to incubate internally. Like I said, I don't think they've signed it with anybody." Spencer also insisted that Microsoft Studios had no next-gen games in development and was instead completely focused on Xbox 360 and Kinect software.

Re: Alan Wake

I think it would be a great launch title if they can get it done in time. With that type of atmosphere, it would look fantastic on a next gen system. I’d buy it.

Re: Alan Wake

I think it would be a terrible launch title. Following the past 25 years in gaming, we can all but guarantee a fall system launch. With a fall launch comes a deluge of huge games. A CoD game is a sure-fire bet. Then you toss in an exclusive like Halo and you are already pushing Alan Wake 2 down the "must buy" list at launch. Never mind that the original failed to make an impact in the spring.

Launching with AW2 would be reminiscent of Condemned. It's not going to be on the top of most people's purchase list no matter how great it might be...but, it will find an audience over time like Condemned and the original AW. I seriously doubt it will be at the top of the launch games "buzz."

Re: Alan Wake

If that's the case then I would also prefer Rockstar waits with GTA V until the next console launch.....does anyone have any further detail of developers already working on games for next gen consoles? Interesting.
