Starting as a post on Graphic Artist Althea Suarez Gata’s LinkedIn profile, fans have been buzzing over what can be expected from Remedy’s Alan Wake IP. The company has confirmed, to Eurogamer, that something is indeed in the works, but it is neither a sequel or more DLC.
“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 installment will not be Alan Wake 2. And neither will it be DLC,” clarified Oskari Hakkinen, Remedy’s head of franchise development. “The rest we’re saving for our official announcement when we’ll actually show you. It’s something that’ll definitely give more to the Wake fans out there, but just as importantly, this installment will also give an opportunity for players who aren’t familiar with the franchise to finally jump on board.”
“This has come in a little unexpected as we weren’t expecting to be talking about this just yet. On the flip side, it’s great to see that there is interest out there – it really would seem Alan Wake is very close to the hearts of the fans out there, and to ours too,” added Hakkinen. “It is of course a shame that this news leaked before our official announcements went out which will include the visuals and information to support it. 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.”
