It was not long ago we got excited due to the news that Alan Wake is coming back. The rumor was spread because of the fact that a trademark was registered by the name Alan Wake’s Return. It was a great news for us and also for every other fan of the game but a new story has been brought up on the scene. And it seems like we got excited about something which doesn’t even exist.
Sorry to say but Alan Wake’s Return is not a game, in fact it’s a video series that will appear in the game Quantum Break. The trademark was registered for the video not for the game.
Same Lake who is Remedy’s Creative Director has confirmed that the registered trademark is not meant for the game instead it will be used for a live action mini-TV series. This is what he has to say talking to KOTAKU.
“A big part of the trademarking process all in all is the legalities of it.
“When it comes to starting development on a game, it’s a different process of making sure everything is locked down
“So, no real news about anything future Alan Wake-related.
“Other than that, we are exploring possibilities and concepting different things, but lots needs to click into place for anything to happen. We will be the first to talk about it when there is something definite to talk about.”
