Possible Alan Wake 2 hints from Remedy

We recently told you about the upcoming release of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare which is a spin-off title due to be released in February, but now we may have the first hints on the possibility that developers Remedy Entertainment are already starting work on Alan Wake 2.

The Finnish developers were keen to point out that American Nightmare is not a true sequel to the original Alan Wake title and that something bigger and better will be coming after American Nightmare hits on Xbox Live.

We could have just a hint of Remedy getting the ball rolling now, as they have recently posted a job listing on their website, looking for a gameplay /AI programmer which will aid them on a ‘groundbreaking’ ‘AAA’ console project. It could be a brand new IP from the company but we predict that it is Alan Wake 2 since they always said a sequel would be coming after the successful Alan Wake game which many of you loved.

Just to point out, Remedy are also responsible for developing the first two Max Payne games along with Rockstar, but the upcoming release of Max Payne 3 will see Remedy Entertainment step away from the franchise so this job listing rules out the possibility of the game being Max Payne 3. Considering that Remedy does not have any other ‘AAA’ franchises on their books, then this is probably a safe bet that they have already started developing for Alan Wake 2.

Will it be ready before the end of the year though, or are they going to expand on American Nightmare with some additional DLC after release? We showed you some gameplay from American Nightmare last week and considering how good that looks, it can only mean good things for Alan Wake 2.

Take a look at the listing here courtesy of GamerZines and let us know your thoughts on it. Do you believe this is the first signs of Alan Wake 2? How highly do you rate the franchise?
