Remedy's Alan Wake boss, Oskari Hakkinen has said that an Alan Wake sequel still hasn't been confirmed.
Speaking to IGN, Hakkinen said: "We're in a limbo at the moment where neither of us are talking about it.
"Microsoft have an option for it. That was in the deal a long time ago... and I don't see why they wouldn't. We're happy with the partnership and they're happy with the game."
According to the Remedy man, Microsoft is more interested in DLC for the original game at the moment:
"Microsoft are throwing the idea around of more episodes, but you know the size of our studio. We're a small team. We wouldn't really be able -- if we were to confirm a sequel at some point, which we'd like to do relatively soon."
How long would a Wake sequel take once it is confirmed? "Max Payne 1 took us also five years to make," says Hakkinen.
"Max Payne 2 took us 18 months. I think we'd be looking at something of a similar cycle."
Three Alan Wake DLC episodes have been confirmed so far with 'The Signal' set for the end of the week.
