Remedy admitted they were working on Alan Wake 2, but it “didn’t pan out”. With them currently working on their new game, Control, it makes you wonder whether Alan Wake 2 will ever see the light of day.
At PAX East, the team at VG247 had a chance to talk to Thomas Puha, the director of communications at Remedy and said “We were working on Alan Wake 2 years ago and it just didn’t pan out, so there’s nothing – we’re just booked solid for the next couple of years, really. We do own the Alan Wake IP, but it’s never quite as simple as that, but yeah, we do own it.”
It’s been 9 years since that first game, and a sequel is something that fan’s wanted. I mean, the first one scared the shit out of me, but it’s definitely a game I would like. Still, there is an Alan Wake TV series that’s being made, maybe that will see some fans through.
Just remember, Remedy still own that IP, so maybe one day they’ll decide to keep working on it!
