Remedy Hiring for AAA Xbox 360 Game; Alan Wake 2?

By Brian Leahy, Oct 19, 2010 1:40pm PDT Remedy Entertainment (Max Payne, Alan Wake) has listed a producer job for a "AAA console project" for the Xbox 360 (via Eurogamer).

No additional details are listed, which might have offered some clues as to what this game might be, but it also doesn't rule out a sequel to Alan Wake.

Back in August, Remedy's Oskari Hakkinen revealed that the company would like to make Alan Wake 2, but that it would remain exclusive to Microsoft even though Remedy owns the intellectual property.

Remedy released two DLC packs for Alan Wake--"The Signal" and "The Writer"--following the release of the game itself in May. The PC version was scrapped by Microsoft before the release of the game.

  • A lot of great games don't make the PC anymore. No need to hate on Remedy just because it was working on a PC version at some point - how is that really any worse than other platform exclusives where the devs were never working on a PC version at all? Besides, the decision was probably MS's.

    Frankly I don't see this as a huge downside - it's not like the game is a FPS where a mouse would have helped out a lot (Killzone 2, I'm looking at you and your fucked up controls). And this way I can just rent it from Gamefly for the 8 hour experience instead of wasting $40 on the thing.
