Last month it was discovered that Remedy had filed a trademark for Alan Wake’s Return. The gaming world was instantly in a frenzy over the cult classic’s possible sequel. Today Remedy has allayed those rumors and broken many hearts in the process.
The trademark is instead for an in-game video series. Alan Wake’s Return is a set of live-action, mini episodes which star Sam Lake, Remedy’s creative director. Lake explained to Kotaku that “a big part of the trademarking process all in all is the legalities of it;” he continues on in saying trademarking is just “to make sure everything is covered.” Unfortunately, there is “no real news about anything future Alan Wake-related.”
However, Lake did say that the studio is “exploring possibilities and concepting different things,” although “lots needs to click into place for anything to happen.” Remedy won’t be able to talk about Alan Wake, until there is something concrete to talk about in regards to Alan Wake; there may still be a bit of hope.
Now the studio is solely focused on the April 5th release of Quantum Break coming to Xbox One and Windows PC.
