With Control, Remedy Entertainment recently delivered another top title, but fans are also longing for a sequel to Alan Wake. If you believe a new rumor, then one could actually come.
Remedy Entertainment could make a return to the popular Alan Wake franchise with its next big game. At least that is what an insider claims, who was usually very well informed in the past.
A little over a year ago, Remedy had signed a publishing deal with Epic Games to develop two games for PC and consoles. According to Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat
Alan Wake 2 is said to have been in the pre-production stage at the time the deal was concluded. Developer Remedy had therefore been looking for a publisher for a while in order to ultimately finance the development. This is said to have been guaranteed by the deal with Epic Games, so that work on the sequel has been pushed forward since then; However, Grubb initially failed to provide any more specific information about the title.
Epic Games is already quite busy when it comes to publishing. The next projects from Gen Design and Playdead will also be published. In this way, Epic Games would like to generate exclusive offers for the in-house Epic Games Store without having to otherwise only have to make time-exclusive agreements with independent studios and publishers.
The fact that Remedy might actually return to Alan Wake would be anything but surprising. Corresponding intentions had already been communicated in advance. Sam Lake, the developer’s creative director, emphasized last summer that the studio’s new project was part of Control and Alan Wake’s game universe. We will of course keep you up to date on the further development of this rumor!
