Alan Wake is Set To Return, But Not For a Sequel

Alan Wake developer Remedy has confirmed to Eurogamer that further to yesterday's leaked report, Alan Wake is indeed set to return. However, the game won't be Alan Wake 2, although the Finnish developer has declared that there is more from Wake on the way in some form or another.
"Fans of the franchise will be excited to learn that yes, more Wake is coming! But to be absolutely certain to avoid confusion, this next Wake instalment will not be Alan Wake 2. And neither will it be DLC," teased Remedy's Oskari Hakkinen. "The rest we're saving for our official announcement when we'll actually show you."
Apparently, Remedy has dedicated "a slice" of its team to developing the project over the past few months, sparking speculation that it could be an Alan Wake title for Kinect, although that seems like a bit of a long shot.
"It's something that'll definitely give more to the Wake fans out there, but just as importantly, this instalment will also give an opportunity for players who aren't familiar with the franchise to finally jump on board," Hakkinen added. "We can't wait to show you more, bear with us. Release dates, platforms and pricing are unconfirmed as of yet, but fall 2011 is probably a good guess."
We're stumped. If it's not DLC and it's not Alan Wake 2, could it perhaps be a disc-based spin-off of some sort? We'll just have to sit tight and wait to find out.
