Xbox One port of Alan Wake a possibility


Coming from Polygon’s continued Alan Wake coverage is news that Remedy is “discussing [the] possibility” of an Xbox One port of Alan Wake. There’s nothing concrete as of yet but it would most likely also include the post-release DLC, The Signal and The Writer (which I should still go back and play someday!). Sam Lake, Remedy’s Chief Creative Officer also said it was “highly unlikely” that a port would appear on PS4 and Wii U.

However, if they do get around to making Alan Wake 2 they aren’t sure whether it would be an Xbox One exclusive or not:

“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.”

Though for some reason Alan Wake didn’t set my world on fire, I’d love to see it given another chance. Fingers crossed, and flashlights ready.

    It’s a shame this game didn’t sell as well as they were hoping. I sold my X box 360 but couldn’t sell this game as it was one of my favorite horror games in some time. Alan Wake in my opinion is like when Resident Evil came out on the NGC, It was produced for the wrong console and therefore didn’t sell as well. The X Box isn’t really know for it’s horror titles and focuses more on action. Personally if it came out one the PS3 or both console I think it might of done a bit better.

    I’d buy it at a high price!
    I still play it on my 360 every now and again. Love it!

    I for one would not buy a 3rd port of this game. As much as I love Sam Lake and Remedy games(my favourite company)the idea of buying another port is just ridiculous.

    Alan Wake is basically the reason I got an Xbox 360 back then. It’s an amazing game, I’d love to see a sequel on PS4!

    I never bothered with this on 360 but purchased it on PC, that was a very good decision, any comparison video you watch between the 360 and PC will show you just how beautiful this game was meant to be on 360 but fell short until it’s PC release. I would instantly buy this for Xbox One, especially if they bumped it up to 60fps@1080p with the dlc included, they could even throw in American Nightmare and maybe update the textures for an even more insanely awesome experience. To me this game was like playing through an interactive film written by my favorite author Dean Koontz.
