Remedy creative director Sam Lake has addressed fan reaction to the Alan Wake series not continuing in lieu of this Quantum Break thingamajig.
Essentially, it came down to Wake not performing well when it was first released, even though the series went on to sell over 3 million copies.
"When Alan Wake come out, it was not a huge hit on day one," Lake said. "The Alan Wake franchise has moved more than 3 million copies since, which is a nice figure. But when the game was released, that was not the case immediately."
