After yesterday’s rumors springing from an artist’s resume Alan Wake 2 was all but confirmed in the eyes of the internet. Not so says Remedy however. Barely a day after the rumors started to spread Remedy has stepped in to put these rumors to rest. The developer contacted Joystiq and have confirmed with them that they are indeed working on the next Alan Wake game but it is not going to be Alan Wake 2.
Oskari Häkkinen, head of franchise development for the Finnish developer, said that the team is working on the “next Wake installment” to the series but it won’t be any simple DLC add on. He chose not to go into further detail about the title but did state that they are a tad disheartened that the news about their work leaked out before the planned announcement. Oskari did state however that there is going to be an official announcement soon and that “Fall 2011 is probably a good guess” as to when we should expect this next Alan Wake game to be in stores.
