Talks are in progress over potentially remastering the popular thriller for the Xbox One
Last month we posted news speculating whether the Xbox 360 game was in the pipeline to be released for the Xbox One and now some interesting words have come from both Microsoft and the games’ developer, Remedy.
A Microsoft Spokesperson provided the following in a recent interview:
“‘Alan Wake’ was one of the most engrossing and cinematic games of the Xbox 360 generation and it would be interesting to see what Remedy Entertainment would do if they decided to revisit the IP again. However, right now our focus is on working with them to deliver the best possible experience with ‘Quantum Break’ when it launches exclusively on Xbox One in 2016.”
“I would love that to happen,” said Remedy’s chief creative officer, Sam Lake. “Nothing has happened yet, but we are discussing this possibility with Microsoft. I hope it happens, we’ll see.”
It is very likely that Alan Wake would be exclusive to Xbox One as Microsoft published the original title for the Xbox 360 back in May, 2010.
On Monday, Remedy revealed that it was considering work on an Alan Wake sequel after it finished with Xbox One exclusive Quantum Break, which is due to be released some time in 2016 having been pushed back. Microsoft began registering their interest last month in a remastered version of Alan Wake, suggesting it could even be offered as a preorder bonus for Quantum Break.
