Now that Remedy is back in possession of the IP of Alan Wake, the videogame writer and author Sam Lake admits he wants to return to the series to develop the highly anticipated sequel.
In an interview granted to journalists of IGN.com, the father of Max Payne, Quantum Break and the next, ambitious action Metroidvania Control does not hide and explains candidly that “I want to do it, it’s something that has always intrigued me, also because it has been a long time since the launch of the first chapter. I feel that the bar of expectations and commitment to dedicate to it has risen in some way, so we have to do things carefully if we really want to deal with them”.
Before evaluating its actual development and providing work on Alan Wake 2 at the beginning, however, Sam Lake admits that different things will have to happen, because “everything must find its place, which is really difficult. Many factors must be carefully evaluated before starting to work on such a large project, but I really hope that all things fit together properly and that one day …”. Also because, as explained in recent months by Thomas Puha of Remedy, the Finnish authors were already working on Alan Wake 2 but it didn’t work.
Before turning our gaze to the future to dream of diving into the evocative thrilling environments of Alan Wake 2, we remind you that the new project by Remedy Entertainment, the paranormal action Control, will be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One starting from August 27th of this year.
