It's looking like equating Alan Wake
to a weekly TV series was actually a larger hint at just how the game will be delivered to gamers. In an interview over at Joystiq
, Remedy's Matias Myllyrinne outlined the team's plans for substantial DLC support post-release, in a fashion not at all dissimilar to a TV series, meaning the main game (or first release), may very well simply serve as the "pilot".
"I think it'll depend a lot on the audience," he told the site. "But certainly we want to - if we're successful
- do a large Season 2, if you will, at some point. Right now, I'm not allowed to say what we're doing exactly this year. But we're going to have more than one episode come out this year."
If this is indeed true, it could prove unique and engaging, or slow and annoying - here's hoping the 'episodes' aren't 44 minutes long.
