Phil Spencer Looking at More Xbox One Features Like Forza Free Weekend; New Alan Wake Should Be by Remedy

The Forza Motorsport 5 free weekend for Xbox Live Gold members is in full swing, and apparently Microsoft is satisfied by the results, enough to think about more initiatives of the same sort in the future, as mentioned by the Xbox division head Phil Spencer on Twitter.

The response to the #GoldWeekend has been good so far. Looking at more of these kinds of features.

Spencer also talked about a possible sequel to Alan Wake specifying that it should be made by Remedy, but for now the developer is busy with Quantum Break.

@remedygames is pretty busy with QB right now. I think any future AW would have to be a Remedy game.

It’s definitely good to see that Microsoft doesn’t intend to shuffle the franchise around, keeping it in the portfolio of its original developer. And if that means that we’ll have to wait, we’ll wait. I don’t know about you guys, but I’m not going anywhere.
