Rumor: Alan Wake returns in 'Night Springs'

Rumors are swirling that the next Alan Wake adventure will be a downloadable title, dubbed "Alan Wake: Night Springs." True or not, we just want some more Alan Wake action.


If the rumor is true, Alan Wake's next adventure will be an Xbox Live Arcade title, dubbed "Alan Wake: Night Springs." XBLAFans reports a source has shared details and screenshots for the downloadable title in the Alan Wake franchise--though its source requested the screens not be shared.

According to the site, this same informant outed the recently announced Monolith downloadable title Gotham City Impostors several months ago.

Night Springs is the name of the television series that appeared in Alan Wake. At one point in the game, Alan Wake mentions he had once written for the Twilight Zone-style program.

While Rememdy is not commenting on the rumor, the developer's Head of Franchise Development recently stated that Alan Wake would return in a new game; however, the new title would not be a sequel or downloadable content for the original title.

      Damn I was really hoping the new AW news was a PC version. I know I just can't let go after all the years of waiting.

        The amount of money MS dumped on Remedy, there is no way that is coming to PC anytime remotely soon.

          Still makes me sad, I'll probably never play this game because Ill be damned to go out and get a shitbox for 1 game. Just let me pout over here for a bit.

      I liked the first game but as some pointed out the fighting was all the same. Are the DLCs just more and more hours of pointing flashlight + shoot?

        That's the core game mechanic but that's not it. The ending of Alan Wake bleeds into the first DLC. There are plenty of WTF moments to be had - in a good way. The 2nd DLC is the better of the 2. There's a lot more objective based gameplay. In one section you need to find your way out of a building that moves. You won't be bored at all playing the DLC. AW did get a little boring after a while, but the narrative was good enough to overlook that. The DLC keep you moving.

      I'm looking forward to more Alan Wake. The great atmosphere and characters are what made me really enjoy the first game. I'll definitely play more of it.

      I was interested in buying Alan Wake, was waiting to see if there would be a PC version but kind of gave up. Went to EB to pick up a copy, and they told me it had been discontinued. Which is just EB jargon for "we only sell used copies now". Sorry EB, not happening.

      One of the developers already stated it wasn't a new Alan Wake game.. And it was going to bring more people to the Alan Wake franchise.

      "this next Wake installment," which is neither sequel nor downloadable content.

      "It's something that'll definitely give more to the Wake fans out there, but just as importantly, this installment will also give an opportunity for players who aren't familiar with the franchise to finally jump on board."

      Coming to a new platform is the only thing I can see happening here.
