The comically long wait for Remedy’s action-horror title Alan Wake will hopefully be justified when the game finally releases in two months. I say hopefully because Remedy has all sorts of plans for rolling out "episodes” for the game following its release, but if the game doesn’t do well, those episodes might not see the light of day.
"If we’re successful…we want to do a large ‘Season 2,’ if you will, at some point,” Remedy managing director Matias Myllyrinne told Joystiq during GDC 2010.
Success aside though, Myllyrinne went on to say that Remedy still plans to “have more than one episode come out this year."
Seeing Alan Wake go episodic would be fantastic, especially given the Lost/Stephen King vibe and style the game is going for, but all I’m really concerned about at this point is the game that’s on the retail disc. There will be plenty of time to binge on Wake episodes after a few have been released. Right?
