Remedy Officially Confirms Alan Wake 2
John Williamson / 4 years ago
Alan Wake is an eerie psychological horror game which originally launched on Xbox 360 and eventually came to PC. The PC version is an absolute treat due to its fantastic graphics and superb optimization. Many of the game’s fanbase have become concerned about the lack of information regarding a sequel and started to believe the franchise had no future. Thankfully, Remedy Entertainment boss Sam Lake has officially confirmed a sequel is in production during an interview with Game Informer.
It’s currently unknown if this will be an Xbox One exclusive or feature a staggered PC release like the upcoming Tomb Raider game. Lake also went onto say he hopes Quantum Break will release on PC, but this is doubtful given its exclusivity contract. It greatly depends if Microsoft starts to take PC gaming seriously and ports their major Xbox One releases.
Whatever the case, I’m pleased to see an Alan Wake revival and hope it ends up on PC. The game isn’t enough to make me rush out and buy Microsoft’s latest console though, but that also applies to every other exclusive franchise they currently own. Although, I am quite a loyal PC gamer so this doesn’t apply to everyone.
