I don’t know about you, but I was getting rather worried about whether or not Alan Wake was still going to see the light of day.
Pretty much nothing has been heard of this game in well over a year. There was never a rumour or any type of proof to suggest that the game might be cancelled, but with no information about the game being released for such a long time, it made me wonder. The good news, then, is that we have a statement from Remedy Entertainment that says that the game is still in development.
When Unscripted360.com contacted Remedy to get some info, this is what they were told:
â€œRight now we are fully focused on development and not ready to talk more about Alan Wake. We’re doing well and the game is looking awesome, but it is time to labor away and to keep our nose to the grind. The game has a lot of potential and it deserves to be crafted into all it can be. We are driven by our own quality standard not a timeline. Would love to talk more when we pop our heads above the surface next time.â€ – Remedy Entertainment PR
Taking more time to make it great? Fine by me, it was already looking really good so improvements and refining are more than welcome in my books. It looks then that the game will be done when it’s done as no release date has ever been set.
If we are very lucky, we could see it end of 2008, but I highly doubt. I would say that a more realistic date would be either April or November ’09. Let’s hope that it’s worth the wait.
