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.

exactly. I never thought i would become completely disinterested in this game after following it from the start but with the xbox exclusive and the idea im getting from this it looks not to far away.

As long as we're still getting a full game on the disc, then this decision isn't really f*****g with the game. A game delivered episodically in the style of a tv show dovetails into some ideas I've had kicking around in my head for a while, so I'm interested to see how this turns out and if it works.

If they're only delivering half the game on the disc and the other half as DLC though, then thats f***ed. But that seems like a ridiculous thing to do. I would imagine (hope?) that they're not going to make such a stupid move.

Heh, it sounds like something someone with dollar signs in their eyes would do.

"Holy s*** this game is f*****g AWESOME. You could cut the f*****g thing in half and it wuld still sell!"
