Alan Wake XBLA is Highly Ambitious — Basically Alan Wake 2

Posted on December 5, 2011 AT 09:39am

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.
