Alan Wake dev hiring for AAA 360 game

Is Remedy making Alan Wake 2?

Max Payne and Alan Wake developer Remedy is looking for a producer to make a triple-A Xbox 360 game.

The job posting on industry website Gamasutra (spotted by VG247) reads: "Remedy Entertainment, the creator of Max Payne and Alan Wake, and one of the leading independent game studios in the world is now looking for a producer for a AAA console project."

At the bottom of the advert, next to the platforms tab, it simply says "Xbox 360".

The suggestion, obviously, is that the game in question is Alan Wake 2, which Remedy has expressed a desire to create in the past.

In August the Finnish developer told Eurogamer a sequel to Alan Wake would be Microsoft-exclusive despite Remedy owning the intellectual property and controlling its destiny.

"Being in this launch phase at the moment, we haven't had a chance to get out to Redmond, Microsoft Game Studios, and discuss anything further of how we move on," franchise development head Oskari Häkkinen said.

"But I don't see any reason why we wouldn't continue with Microsoft with a full-blown sequel for Alan Wake.

"We definitely want to do it. We have great ideas for it.

"There's certainly a want, and that want is I believe from both sides. Right now I can't confirm anything."

Remedy's just released the final Alan Wake add-on, The Writer. Eurogamer awarded it 5/10.
