Alan Wake was a disappointment in sales, because it was released at the completely the wrong time. With great reviews, and now one million sales world wide, it could still be possible that Alan Wake 2 could be real.
In the rumor bin this time, Althea Suarez Gata, who works at Halon Entertainment (who are responsible for helping in a lot of movies), had her CV found on the internet, which states that she worked as a Previs Artist on Alan Wake 2. It also states that the game was to come out in 2012. Here is the screenshot:
Was our (*cough* My) prayers answered? It isn’t unknown that people usually lie on their CV just to cause speculation, but who knows. Is Microsoft doing something right for once? However, apparently there may not be an E3 2011 reveal as Remedy have said they will not be there. Whether Microsoft themselves will only announce it but not show anything is unknown at this time. No doubt Remedy are not happy about this leak.
Alan Wake was released in May 2010 against Red Dead Redemption.
