Remedy Entertainment is talking with Microsoft about bringing 2010’s Alan Wake to the Xbox One, Polygon reports. Remedy’s chief creative officer Sam Lake told Polygon:
“Nothing has happened yet, but we are discussing this possibility with Microsoft…I hope it happens, we’ll see.”
Alan Wake’s small but dedicated fan base is certainly hoping as well. Lake added that any port of Alan Wake would include the two post-launch DLC episodes and possibly the stand-alone Alan Wake’s American Nightmare.
Lake also told Polygon that it’s “highly unlikely” that a port could land on the Wii U or the Playstation 4.
This news comes after Polygon released 13 minutes of gameplay footage from the unreleased Alan Wake 2. This internal video shows off expanded combat, new gameplay mechanics, and the intended mood of the possible sequel. Alan Wake 2 never went further than this concept video.
Remedy Entertainment is currently working on 2016’s Quantum Break, but Lake has expressed interest in an Alan Wake sequel after production has wrapped up. Unlike the possible port of the first game, Alan Wake 2 could end up on any platform with Lake ultimately concerned about “what’s best for the franchise overall.”
Quantum Break was revealed in 2013, and is a third-person shooter with time manipulation mechanics. Originally announced as an Xbox One exclusive for 2015, the game was pushed back to 2016 so as not to clash with Microsoft’s 2015 IPs.
Quantum Break will also launch with a live-action TV series, with Remedy saying “how you play the game impacts the show, and the show informs how you play the game.”
