While a port of the original Alan Wake would likely only reach the Xbox One, Remedy Entertainment Chief Creative Officer Sam Lake mentioned that a sequel to the game could go to other consoles, including PlayStation systems.
In an interview with Polygon, Lake explained that it would be “highly unlikely” for a port of the original game to come to a console other than the Xbox One, but did say that a sequel could go anywhere.
When it comes to sequels it’s our thing, we can do whatever makes sense and what’s best for the franchise overall. But obviously it depends on many different things. I think that regardless of the platform, a good sequel — while it continues the story of the original one — it’s still something that someone who hasn’t played the original one can enjoy and jump on board and dive into the setting and the world and enjoy themselves.
It’s not like a potential sequel of Alan Wake would be only something that someone who has already played everything in the Alan Wake franchise can enjoy.
Do you think an Alan Wake game will ever hit a PlayStation console? Or do you think that they will remain as Xbox-exclusives?
