The announcement that the next entry in Alan Wake series will be moving to a downloadable platform hasn’t gone down well with some fans, even though there are a distinct lack of details about the forthcoming project.
In response to fan reservations, developer Remedy has jumped to the defence of the title and asked players to wait for more information to be released before condemning the upcoming XBLA outing to the junkpile.
“You’re assuming a lot by the platform it is on,” said Remedy’s community manager. “All I can say is wait for the official announcement before making up your mind.
He then goes on to say:
“We’ll have an official announcement up in a moment but let me clarify that you guys shouldn’t feel disheartened that it’s coming to XBLA. It’s structured like a full release complete with a pretty damn impressive storyline that expands the originals in some interesting ways.
“I really enjoyed it so I’m sure you all will too!”
Those who played the original will remember that the game’s ‘chapters’ played out very much like TV episodes – so who knows – could the rumoured Alan Wake: Night Springs be episodic?
