Speaking to IGN as part of its Unfiltered series, Remedy creative director Sam Lake said that he still hopes the Finnish studio will get around to an Alan Wake sequel, at some stage.

'I want to make it. It's a curious thing,' he said. 'At this point, so much time has passed. I feel that the bar is higher in some ways. It needs to be done right if it's ever done. Everything needs to click into place, which is really hard to make it happen. So many things, for these big games to be greenlit, need to be aligned. But I'm hoping that someday….'

Alan Wake — a game that saw a Stephen King-like writer investigating the disappearance of his wife — was released on PC and Xbox 360 almost 10 years ago, before the XBLA follow-up Alan Wake's American Nightmare came out in 2012. Despite its cult status, fans have had to make do with things like Quantum Break

There is that TV show that's coming, I guess. That's a thing that might be alright. 

The full interview, which is being released later today, sees Lake chatting some Max Payne and Control, as well as the best-selling novelist.
