Quantum Break Creator Sam Lake Thinks Games and Movies Will Merge in Surprising Ways
Sam Lake talks about the possibility of video games and movies merging in the future.
During a keynote at Tribeca Games Festival, Quantum Break and Alan Wake Creative Director Alan Wake was asked whether he feels that video games and movies will merge in the future.
He responded that while he feels that in some ways it’ll happen, those ways might be surprising.
“Yeah, I think in some ways they will probably merge in surprising ways. But then again, I think that there is so much enjoyment and richness in having different mediums that you can pick and choose from. That’s kind of a candy store situation. We are in a happy place where there is so much art and entertainment for us to experience.
I don’t know if they have to merge, but I can definitely see merging happening all the time. Once again, it might be surprising ways.”
Lake continued mentioning that he doesn’t think that there is a need to find an ultimate form of entertainment. There are strengths in different storm of storytelling, and according to Lake that’s great.
