Good news, Night Springs fans. Remedy today confirmed it is bringing Alan Wake out of early retirement for a new title tentatively scheduled for Fall 2011. But before you begin stockpiling batteries and brushing up on obscure Stephen King references, Remedy has also insisted the next installment in its tortured writer series will not be a direct sequel or DLC, but instead a spin-off designed to attract both Bright Falls veterans and newbies alike...
Remedy Entertainment co-founder, Petri Järvilehto, has gone to the birds. Last week, one of the main brains behind Max Payne and Alan Wake left his post at Remedy to join the Angry Birds developer, Rovio, as the Finnish studio's new Senior Vice President of Console Development...
Once rumored to be a no-show at E3, Max Payne developer Remedy wowed the Microsoft press briefing audience last week with a brilliant trailer for their new psychological thriller Alan Wake. Today, we got our hands on that footage and some fresh screens for the upcoming Xbox 360 and PC drama-fest.
The story centers on Alan Wake, a troubled writer who travels to the gorgeous rural town of Bright Falls, Washington to forget his past. Beset by nightmares caused by his fiancée's recent
New Alan Wake screenshots are upon us and - as if there was any doubt - they are so beautiful we want to cry. Yet as stunning as the sunsets and panoramas of Bright Falls are, we've seen them all before.
Conspicuously absent on the other hand are the ghoulish nightmares that alledgedly roam its streets at night. Much has been made of Alan's Silent Hill reminiscent reliance on a flashlight to save him from the horrors, but at the moment all he seems to have found are ghost stories. Not that any
Microsoft has dashed last hopes for fans of Alan Wake's release this year, confirming it's not a 2007 title.
Alan Wake is a title that the company wants to nurture and ensure it's "really ready" when it's ushered back into the limelight, managing director of Microsoft Game Studios, Shane Kim, told Game Informer.
However, Kim explained that it's a game Microsoft wouldn't be talking about if it were "way out in the future." So 2008 then? Could be.
Alan Wake is the latest game from Max Payne

The games industry is a strange, strange place. Its almost 30 years old now, but it seems developers still cant agree on the best way to PR their babies. In our experience, they go one of two ways: trundle down the elaborately stage-managed Assassins Creed path, a game wrapped so tightly in Ubisoft cotton wool that it was little wonder dire rumours surfaced that the game might be one huge stinker (thankfully, as our review attests, we neednt have worried). Or they take a plunge
Alan Wake is finally to re-emerge from the bowels of Remedy HQ after months and months out of the public eye.
According to Microsoft's Robbie Bach, the game will be one of the titles that the company will have at next month's GDC in San Francisco.
"...were saving a lot of stuff for GDC, which is where we plan on showing off some big titles such as Halo Wars and Alan Wake," he's revealed.
The last time we had any real Alan Wake meat to sink our teeth into was back in November 2006. Since
Today, Microsoft will do their best to impress, showing off the latest from the most highly anticipated titles for the Xbox 360 – and GamesRadar will be there bringing you the latest on Halo: Reach, Fable III, Alan Wake, Crackdown 2, and more. Keep checking this page, because we’ll be updating it with the latest screenshots, videos, and early impressions as the event goes on.

Even though this teaser doesn't give too much away about "Bright Falls" other than its live-action-ness (which also looks great, by the way), its premiere on Xbox Live should be enough for those anticipating Alan Wake's release next month.

The new music video for "War," one of the songs featured on Alan Wake's soundtrack, is basically a mini-movie adaptation of the game. Unless you count the evil blurry clown, of course...
