Remedy Entertainment has confirmed that it’s working on a new Alan Wake game, however it isn’t the sequel to the previous game, nor is it downloadable content.
“Fans of the franchise will be excited to learn that yes, more Wake is coming! But to be absolutely certain to avoid confusion, this next Wake instalment will not be Alan Wake 2. And neither will it be DLC,” Remedy’s head of franchise development Oskari Hakkinen told Eurogamer.
“The rest we’re saving for our official announcement when we’ll actually show you.”
Hakkinen confirmed that the Remedy team has been working for “the last months” on the new game, while also confirming who it’s aimed at.
“It’s something that’ll definitely give more to the Wake fans out there, but just as importantly, this instalment will also give an opportunity for players who aren’t familiar with the franchise to finally jump on board,” he added.
“We can’t wait to show you more, bear with us. Release dates, platforms and pricing are unconfirmed as of yet, but Fall 2011 is probably a good guess.”
It almost sounds like this game could be aimed at owners of Kinect. More details at E3 no doubt.
