Announcing Alan Wake As An Open World Title Was A Mistake

Remedy’s Oskari Hakkinen has commented on revealing Alan Wake back in 2005 as an open world title was a mistake:
“We’re not even shy to say it. Remedy is a humble group of people and we will say it was a mistake. It was a tick-box back then, that was a trend. “Open-world,” “free-roaming” and “sandbox” was the way to go.”

“We tried that for about six months, trying to get the pacing right of a thriller in an open world setting. When you have the player turning up to a love scene in a monster truck when they should be showing up in a Cadillac you know something’s wrong. You know something is not working.”
It's out next month.
