General Gaming Remedy regains control (see what I did there?) of Alan Wake publishing rights

Recommended Posts

I actually tried to replay it recently and it aged terribly. I had very fond memories due to its great setting and all but seemed to have forgotten how borderline bad its actual gameplay and controls were.

It would probably also make you enjoy the thread title more.

I actually think the reason we haven't seen an Alan Wake 2 was specifically because MS held the publishing rights. They've probably been sitting on it on purpose just waiting for that contract to expire. Now they don't have to worry about exclusivity.

I started Allan Wake a few years back. I didn't get very far. It seemed ok. I was just caught up in another 360 game. It was one of the Splinter Cell games. I think it was Conviction. That was ok until it got so hard it felt like banging my head against a wall for 30 mins before I would progress to the next spot for 30 mins.

Like everyone that played Alan Wake, I'd say that it's been at least 7 years, if not more, since I played it. I do remember the dodge mechanic being finicky, but ultimately it handling reasonably well.

I did love shooting at possessed combine harvesters!

Can't wait for them to show off a really cool initial concept and then kind of a really normal game a year later!

Speaking of Control, I can't help but wonder if that game really is Remedy's "last chance" to have a bonafide commercial success, especially since it's a completely multiplatform title (EGS timed exclusivity notwithstanding :p)

 

If Control fares as "well" as Alan Wake or Quantum Break, I'm not sure how much of a financial future Remedy has as an independent developer.

That may be too late to save Remedy!

 

The exclusiveness paid for the money they would have lost so they should be fine for a year.
