Alan Wake might be re-released on Xbox One, sequels to go cross-platform

In a conversation with Polygon, Remedy’s Sam Lake stated that he’s keen to work with Microsoft to bring Alan Wake to the Xbox One.

“I would love that to happen,” Lake began. “Nothing has happened yet, but we are discussing this possibility with Microsoft.

“I hope it happens, we’ll see.”

Though Remedy owns the IP, Alan Wake itself was published by Microsoft, so don’t expect the port on PS4.

“Alan Wake showing up on the PS4 is highly unlikely,” Lake confirmed. “But that’s not the case for the game’s sequel.”

“Ultimately, these things [like sequels] are business decisions,” he added. “We are definitely not ruling anything out and looking at different opportunities, but nothing is set in stone at the moment.”

Lake asserted Remedy would be open to sequels on whatever platforms would support it.

“When it comes to sequels it’s our thing, we can do whatever makes sense and what’s best for the franchise overall,” Lake said. “But obviously it depends on many different things. I think that regardless of the platform, a good sequel — while it continues the story of the original one — it’s still something that someone who hasn’t played the original one can enjoy and jump on board and dive into the setting and the world and enjoy themselves.

“It’s not like a potential sequel of Alan Wake would be only something that someone who has already played everything in the Alan Wake franchise can enjoy.”
