Alan Wake Humble Bundle comes with sequel regrets

Alan Wake is the subject of the latest Weekly Humble Bundle. But along with pay-as-you-like savings on the first game, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, and previously unreleased materials including videos and comics, series developer Remedy offers its condolences.

Remedy's Quantum Break was one of only a few new games showcased at Microsoft's Xbox One reveal on May 21; it's an exciting new project, but it also means the studio won't be working on an Alan Wake sequel for quite some time.


That's Creative Director Sam Lake (who you may know better as the original face of Max Payne). Quantum Break is evidently the new project he teased near the end of 2012.

The news may be a disappointment to eager fans, but a straight-talk video and previously unreleased content is a good way to break it.

    Holy shit, since when was this guy Count Dracula?!

    That guy's face should be sucking on a lemon in each MP game. It was the first game's only sense of levity and I noticed Max looked different instantly in part 2.

    I just started replaying Alan Wake yesterday. It's such a great game. Sad to hear the sequel isn't happening yet, but it was nice of them to be so up-front with fans.

    Damn that sucks. I thought Alan Wake was a brillant game.

    I just got Alan Wake through Games on Demand, I hope it turns out well.

    That is really nice and, dare I say, admirable of him to adress us directly like this and give such a no-bullshit explanation. It's rare to see this kind of honesty and transparency from this degree of developer. Whenever Remedy decides to make Alan Wake 2, I'll be there.

    I have no problem with it. The tease for Quantum Break was so damn good!

    Seeing Sam Lake without doing his iconic constipated Max Payne 1 face just feels unnatural to me.
