According to a new job advertisement posted by Remedy Entertainment, developer of Alan Wake, the studio's next project will be utilising motion control technology.

The ad states: "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 Programmer for a AAA console project.

"We are looking for a skilled programmer with a passion for game programming to join our team. You will be working on the next iteration of Remedy's unique game engine that was previously used in Alan Wake."

Remedy is also hoping the successful candidate will have "experience on motion-control technology (e.g. Kinect)".

Alan Wake was released earlier this year for Xbox 360. It will be released on Xbox LIVE Games on Demand later this month.

Alan Wake wasn't a huge seller, but earlier this year Remedy's Oskari Häkkinen revealed that there is no reason for the franchise not to continue.

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

"There's certainly a want, and that want is I believe from both sides."

But is there a want to include Kinect support? The first game is a dual analogue stick experience, and while we can envisage a motion-based torch mechanic, we're not sure how the rest of the game's controls could be executed.
