Phil Spencer on Alan Wake 2: Remedy Has to Want to Make the Game

on October 25, 2016 4:47 PM

Will there ever be an Alan Wake 2? According to the Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, the ball is in the developer Remedy’s court.

When sitting down for an interview with Stevivor, Spencer was asked “what it would take to see Alan Wake 2 on Xbox One and Windows PC?”

According to interviewer Steve Wright, Spencer furrowed his brow and looked up to the ceiling, before saying the following:

“How do I put this? Well, the developer… the developer has to want to make the game.”

“They have been really supportive about Alan Wake and [now head of Xbox] Phil Spencer has been awesomely supportive when it comes to Remedy and Alan Wake along the way. We showed it to Microsoft and I guess at the time Microsoft was looking for something slightly different for their portfolio.”

Fast forward to Fall 2015 Alan Wake 2 popped up again, however, this time it was good news. When asked by Game Informer if we would ever get to play the sequel, Lake answered decisively with one word: “yes.”

So again I’ll ask, are ever going to get Alan Wake 2? I’m not sure. But going off Spencer’s latest comments, it appears Microsoft has given the greenlight, and all Remedy has to do now is make it. Perhaps, it already is.
