A trademark application for “Alan Wake’s Return” was spotted by a user on the gaming forum Neogaf, pointing to another instalment of the Twin Peaks-style thriller. Remedy’s creative director Sam Lake has always said that he would like to return to the franchise, going so far as to release prototype footage. Alan Wake 2 was eventually scrapped in favour of Quantum Break, although some of the team’s ideas eventually wound up in Alan Wake’s American Nightmare.
Oh hell yes.
Without question the best game I played on the Xbox 360, it’s a crime there hasn’t been more interest in the idea of a franchise.
More evidence of Wake’s inevitable return. Be advised, article contains some pretty serious spoilers for Remedy’s upcoming Quantum Break.
