Alan Wake port might be heading for Xbox One


And the sequel could be coming to any major platform

Further to yesterday’s revelations that a sequel forAlan Wake was still very much on the cards,Polygon has managed to squeeze even more information out of Remedy’s chief creative officer, Sam Lake, including confirmation that the studio is in talks with Microsoft to bring Wake’s mysterious story to the Xbox One.

I would love that to happen,” said Lake, who is also Remedy’s head writer. “Nothing has happened yet, but we are discussing this possibility with Microsoft.I hope it happens, we’ll see.”

And while it’s “highly unlikely” that we will see the original game ported to anything other than Microsoft’s Xbox One, Lake intimated that there was the “possibility” that the sequel “could go to a platform that didn’t have the original game.”

“When it comes to sequels it’s our thing, we can do whatever makes sense and what’s best for the franchise overall,” Lake added. “I think that regardless of the platform, a good sequel — while it continues the story of the original one — it’s still something that someone who hasn’t played the original one can enjoy and jump on board and dive into the setting and the world and enjoy themselves.”

Looks like we might be returning to Bright Falls sooner than feared.
