Alan Wake 2 will be 'very weird'

Although Remedy's Alan Wake boss Oskari Hakkinen has said that an Alan Wake sequel still hasn't been confirmed, Wake writer Mikko Rautalahti believes a sequel is on the way.
"There will be more Alan Wake, if we have anything to say about it," Rautalahti told CVG sister mag Xbox World 360.
"It's a bigger story than just one game, and we want to make it very weird and scary and wonderful."
Having said that Rautalahti also sees the original Alan Wake as a perfectly neat and finished package in itself:
"I'd like to say that if our offices were wiped off the face of the Earth and all you got was that first game it would work just fine as a standalone product," he continued.
"I know some people don't see it that way but it's not intended as a huge cliffhanger, it's an ending to that story."
"We have a very definite story arc and the weird and horrible things that happen to him, and what he needs to do in the end to put things right. Then he needs to do something else. We'll get to that when the time comes."
One of the reasons people are left wondering about an Alan Wake sequel is because the original didn't do as well in terms of sales as expected, despite being well received critically.
