Last week we reported that Remedy filed a trademark for Alan Wake’s Return and we all hoped that it was a sequel to the cult classic, sadly it was not to be.
Kotaku had a chance to speak to Sam Lake, Remedy’s Creative Director, who said that the trademark wasn’t for a new Alan Wake game, but for an in-game video series in Quantum Break. Remedy did something similar to this with Lord and Ladies in the Max Payne games, except instead of still images Alan Wake’s Return will be live action, starring Lake himself.
Lake went on to say that there really isn’t any new Alan Wake news, following it up with reassurance that they working on some ideas for a potential sequel, but the game is not actively in development.
Other than that, we are exploring possibilities and concepting different things, but lots needs to click into place for anything to happen. We will be the first to talk about it when there is something definite to talk about.
While this isn’t exactly a trailer for Alan Wake’s Return, you can get a feel for what the series is all about in the video below.
