Alan Wake 2 is still something that Remedy’s Sam Lake wants to eventually make.
Speaking with IGN, Lake admitted that the sequel would be a great challenge.
“I want to make it,” Lake asserted, admitting that, “at this point, so much time has passed. I feel that the bar is higher in some ways. It needs to be done right if it’s ever done. Everything needs to click into place, which is really hard to make it happen. So many things, for these big games to be greenlit, need to be aligned. But I’m hoping that someday….”
Right now, Lake and Remedy are obviously focused on Control, a new title scheduled for an August release. We consider it something like a spiritual successor to Alan Wake, combining its quirkiness with the combat stylings of Quantum Break.
Lake recently confirmed that Remedy had acquired the publishing rights to the original Alan Wake, so perhaps a remastered re-release could drum up interest in a sequel?
Published by 505 Games, Control heads to Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4 on 27 August 2019.
