One of the most underrated games of the previous generation was Remedy’s Alan Wake, which originally released for the Xbox 360, but later on also came to the PC. Allowing for a very different kind of game than is usually found on the market, the game would go on to become a cult hit, do well critically, receive a pseudo follow up in the form of the American nightmare standalone expansion pack, and, as it turns out, sell a whole bunch of copies too.

Remedy today announced that Alan Wake and American Nightmare have collectively sold 4.5 million copies worldwide. This includes sales of both, the Xbox 360 and the PC version.

Of course, as of right now, a sequel is unlikely- currently, Remedy is working on Quantum Break for the Xbox One, a third person game that looks every bit as likely to break the mould as Alan Wake and Max Payne did before it.

But I sincerely hope that after it is done, Remedy can go back to give us one more adventure starring everyone’s famous novelist.

    If they’re not gonna give us a sequel… They could at least remaster it for Xbox one.

    alan wake came out in 2010, followed it up with a stand alone expansion (aka might as well be a sequel) in 2012. in 5 years, two games on two platforms has eeked out 4.5 million sales. the reason no publisher will touch it and the reason remedy doesn’t have the money to make a sequel. they can’t give you a sequel because the franchise is a commercial failure.

    This should come to the X1
