Alan Wake
Alan Wake 2 Crops Up On a CV
Written By
View author's profile

People really need to be more careful when it comes to listing their achievements on a CV. A year as a gigolo has been removed from my CV, but a LinkedIn CV for an employee at Halon Entertainment - the company behind the Halo: Reach 'deliver Hope' trailer - lists the cinematics for Alan Wake 2 as a previous project, pretty much confirming that a sequel could be in the works.

Althea Suarez Gata was apparently the Previs Artist on some Alan Wake 2 in-game cinematics according to the CV, which is a very strong indication that there is indeed a sequel in existence. A recent job listing for a Senior Level Designer position at Remedy calling for someone to join its "AAA console team" offered hints that Alan Wake 2 could be on the cards, but this latest clue offers even more compelling evidence.

If you've finished Alan Wake and its two accompanying DLC chapters, you'll know that a sequel could easily build upon what's gone before, so here's hoping we hear more from Mr. Wake sooner rather than later.

Agree with #1. Also I felt like the ending of the first gave a fairly large hint there was going to be a sequel. This is great confirming news though!

Not to be a Doubting Thomas or rain on any parades but could the CV simply be referencing the DLC? I hope not because I too loved the game and both DLC's (though I am still not really sure if all of Alan's reality is a story or real...)

@15 I liked the manuscripts as they actually added something to the game, some of them even adding little hints of things to come. I agree with you on the flasks though, utterly purposeless.

@15. I agree, they went way over the top with the collectables. The manuscripts were fine though as they were linked to the story and had a proper purpose. The first game was great, although I hope this time they find a way to make the combat a bit less repetitive.

First ame proper was truly unique and fun to play. DLC was so twisted that I am afraid even Alan could not find his way out of it with my help. I hope they can untangle it as I really hated DLC and story presented in it...

Game is really good
But the DLC can go suck monkey balls. This should have better stayed just the base game.
Anyway I'd prefer to leave some mysteries to Alans story
I'd rather see another character in a different setting but with a sameish story with writing becoming reality and stuff which can also answer a few questions if you derive that to Wakes story.
Liked the character and setting but this kinda feels complete and doing a direct sequel will take away some of its majesty.

Honestly, how could there not be an Alan Wake sequel?
A. It was a brilliant game, and the ending is ripe for a sequel with no gimmicks or spoilers
B. The end of the credits clearly states that "Alan Wake's journey through the night will continue"
C. Everything about the game is ripe for a series, but in a good way, not like the Halo franchise >_> The characters are awesome, the story is awesome, the settting, the enemies, and just about everything else is a good target for expansion =D
P.S. If Alan Wake 2 (or whatever it will be called) does come out, they should have new enemies like Taken dogs and wolves, and have a stage where you're trapped in a building, and the building itself is a Taken, and you need to activate 4 generators on all side to kill it =D
Wouldn't that be awesome?

Im going to get so much shit for this but I really dont care. In my opinion Alan Wake is no where near as good as people pretend it is. In fact Alone in the Dark did everything Alan Wake did and more but better and 2 years earlier. They both feature an episodic style breakdown and the idea of using light as a weapon. Thats about it. Alone in the Dark takes it one step further with the ability to combine weapons and items, an open world setting, a more engrossing story, more horrifying moments, more diverse enemy types, and more ways to dispose of them, among other things. Yes Alone in the Dark was a commercial failure. So was Dark Sector and that is still one of the best games I have played on 360. Just because games dont get the attention of so called "blockbusters" doesnt mean they are bad games. Its ok for everyone to say Castlevania is a complete rip off God of War even though Castlevania has been a franchise before the idea of GoW was even concieved but as soon as you compare Alan Wake to Alone in the Dark there is no comparison because AitD is a "terrible" game. Well Id rather play Castlevania and Alone in the Dark any day. My point is Alan Wake is definitely not the best game ever. Its actually one of the worst games Ive played this generation. Deadly Premonition was more entertaining. Yeah it is pretty to look at but the gameplay is shallow and repetitive and the story did nothing to captivate me in any way... thats really about all Alan Wake has. It is not a bad game by any means but when you put a game on a pedestal you should be able to back it up and people put Alan Wake on a HUGE pedestal. One that it does not live up to. You most likely dont agree with me and thats okay.

If they do make another one i am going to get, why you ask? The first one was one of the best game I have play....aside from the Halo game's, But yeah I pre-ordered it before relly looking into it and was really happy with the game play and the video's for it. SO I really hope that they do make a part 2, Me and my wife would really love it if they did.

Hell. Yes. I loved Alan Wake and feel like it was a brilliant return to survival horror (in a sense...wasn't really horror in the silent hill/resident evil sense, but yeah, good enough).

SO excited about this!

Imo this game was very overrated, it had nothing that the first silent hill hasnt done better, and the story was overly convoluted.

I think in this generation it is one of few games to attempt survival horror, but it was done better during other generations imo

This will probably upset a lot of people here but it's just my opinion!
