View Full Version : Alan Wake is Still Alive

WooHoo, new trailer coming on the 15th.

The site of Finnish mag Pelaaja is about to publish a 50-minute podcast which includes an in-depth chat with Remedy lead writer Sami Jšrvi on the current state of Alan Wake, why itís taking so long and a proper confirmation that a new trailer is to be shown in Finland on October 15.

From the podcast:

The reason itís taking so long is simply that itís a small team and building an open world game is very tough. They just want to take their time with it, but itís definitely making progress.
The reason for a new trailer is simple. The team mostly came up with it on a whim due to the release Max Payne movie. Also, the company just wanted to show something new on the game.
Remedyís using some of its old Rockstar contacts for the titleís development. Navid Khonsari who handled most of the mocap and VO directing in Rockstarís games prior to GTA4 is apparently working on voice directing.
Remedy owns the Alan Wake IP, so the firmís able to take its time with it, though Jšrvi admits in the interview itís taking a long time to make. Remedy insists that itís not that it wonít ever be happy with the game, but the team just wants to make it as good as it can be.
Weíre assuming the interviewís in Finnish, but you will be wanted to keep that URL in mindÖ

A release date for the game, in development since early 2005, has not been given, but Remedy CFO Mika Reini said in August, "we're still here and working hard on getting Alan Wake for you to enjoy."

yawn, another game that's not even close to being out yet. I'll start giving it some attention in another year or so when it's done.
