After CG character animator Althea Suarez Gata exposed that she had worked on Alan Wake 2 in her credit of work, Remedy decided to roll with the punches and release a statement to Joystiq on the Alan Wake series:
...[It's] a shame that this news leaked before our official announcement which will of course include the visuals and information to support it. Well, now that the cat is out of the bag, we owe it to you and the fans to shed a little more light before we get the chance to officially show them what the guys have been up to.
Fans of the franchise will be excited to learn that yes, more Wake is coming! But to be absolutely certain to avoid confusion, this next Wake installment will not be Alan Wake 2. But neither will it be DLC. The rest we're saving for our official announcement when we'll actually SHOW YOU....
...Release dates, platforms and pricing are unconfirmed as of yet, but Fall 2011 is probably a good guess.
