Alan Wake Summary
The next game from Alan Wake, Max Payne and Quantum Break developer Remedy Entertainment was expecting to be similar to their previous games, but a job listing makes P7 sound like an online title.
Sam Lake is a name most of us have heard of. Once the only writer over at Remedy Entertainment, he's responsible for the group's continued success with narrative-driven games like Max Payne, Alan Wake and Quantum Break. He's also the master of having his games recognise his own name.
With Remedy's co-founder and face of Max Payne - Sam Lake - appearing at all sorts of media events over the last month, it stands to reason he and his company wish to expand their grasp on the industry. And if a proposed IPO goes as planned, Remedy Entertainment will be well on their way to that goal.
Remedy Entertainment is always said to be working on something, but they're never very clear as to what it is. Things start, things end and then they're making games for other companies. According to Gamespot, however, they've finally (officially) starting on something new.
Whenever a journalist is about to extract a key answer from a game developer, a public relations specialist usually isn't far away, ready to interject and ruin the moment; and even Phil Spencer, Head of Xbox, isn't immune to their rule.
