THE BUZZ: It appears that the next Alan Wake title, set to be announced at the VGAs, is more than just a scaled down arcade release. Geoff Keighley, host of the VGAs, claims it is a highly ambitious title, basically Alan Wake 2.
“I’ve seen the game, I’ve seen the trailer we’re showing, and even though it’s going to be a downloadable game, it’s not a small game,” he told Major Nelson. “I mean, it effectively is, I think, Alan Wake 2 when you really look at it and look what they’re doing with that game. It’s really ambitious, beautiful technology and I think people are going to be really excited about it. So I think one thing that’s happening and will happen over the next year is the idea of downloadable games will change and it won’t necessarily mean small experience.”
EGM’s TAKE: This is great news for fans who were worried that an arcade release would damage the atmosphere and story that made the game popular in the first place.
