Not so long ago, I reported that Alan Wake's Return was spotted as a registered trademark, leaving many to speculate this could be a long asked about sequel game. Well, Wake fans, allow me to break your hearts.
It turns out this is just a show inside the Quantum Break reality, more of an easteregg than anything. The show can be seen in the upcoming game and Remedy's Sam Lake says that filing that trademark was just admin. Speaking to Kotaku, he said:
A big part of the trademarking process all in all is the legalities of it. Just making sure everything is covered. So, no real news about anything future Alan Wake-related.
That's a shame. Still, just from the noise made from the game's developer of late, I expect it to be the next title from them.
