Alan Wake developer Remedy has posted a behind-the-scenes look at its Finnish studio as part of a fresh recruitment drive.

The developer, long rumoured to be working on a sequel to the Microsoft-published thriller, is looking for artists, programmers and developers with iOS experience.

Remedy kicked off the year with the promise of 'great Remedy news to come in 2013', further fuelling speculation it's to unveil an Alan Wake follow-up.

Hinting at the Finnish studio's plans, lead writer Sam Lake said on Twitter in 2012: "It's all true. 'It will happen again, in another town, a town called Ordinary.' It's happening now."

His post linked to a blog that appeared to carry strong links to the Alan Wake series.

Last March, Remedy's head of franchise development Oskari Häkkinen told CVG that the original Alan Wake had topped two million sales across Xbox 360 and PC.

Asked if he thought the sales milestone, coupled with the release of spin-off game Alan Wake's American Nightmare, meant the franchise had a future, he said: "Yeah, I think so. Alan Wake is definitely very close to our hearts. It's our IP - we own it. It's not something that we're going to forget very easily."

Remedy has confirmed via job ads it's looking for "world-class talent to work on an unannounced project targeted at future generation consoles".
