Treatment has beforehand stated that Alan Wake 2 will launch someday this yr, nevertheless it appears like Alan Wake himself could have let the cat out of the bag. The voice actor for the eponymous protagonist is Matthew Poretta and, showing on the Monsters, Insanity, and Magic podcast (thanks IGN), dated the sport as popping out this October.
“I have been engaged on [Alan Wake 2],” stated Porretta. “That is supposed to return out in October. We’re in the midst of engaged on it now. In truth, I used to be simply in Finland final week, that is the place the corporate is from… Treatment, superb individuals.”
I’ve contacted Treatment to ask for remark and can replace with any response. It’s after all vital to do not forget that Porretta is outdoors expertise and isn’t talking on the studio’s behalf, so this might be an previous date or inaccurate. However hell, the man is Alan Wake so that you’d assume he may need some thought.
Poretta additionally had a neat reminiscence of scoring the position after he’d forgotten in regards to the audition. “So I went and auditioned for this job 13 years in the past, in actual fact it was Alan Wake’s birthday on Sunday […] six months later my agent known as me up and was like ‘hey you understand that videogame you went in on’? I am like ‘no’ [laughs]. ‘Alan Wake, you bought it’. I used to be ‘oh, what am I doing in it?’ He goes ‘Alan Wake’. I am like, ‘oh, cool!'”
Treatment is billing Alan Wake 2 because the studio’s “first survival horror sport”, which looks like a little bit of an unintentional diss of the primary sport (which I appreciated so much). At any time when it does launch, the superb factor is it has been made in any respect: As Porretta mentions, it has been 13 years because the authentic. Treatment’s saved its playing cards near its chest with this one, and the studio appears to assume it may need one thing particular on its palms. We’ll discover out quickly sufficient however, actually, the author and inventive director Sam Lake put it finest, and sure the caps are all his:
“ALAN WAKE II IS A SEQUEL TO OUR EARLIER GAME CALLED ALAN WAKE.”
