Max Payne and Quantum Break developer Remedy has two new games actively in development. Before you get your hopes up though, no, none of them are Alan Wake 2. At least, that’s the official line. However, there are two, and at least one of them could stray from Remedy’s partnership with Microsoft and be multiplatform.

“Moving forward, we want to create more games and hopefully get them out more often,” said Remedy’s head of communications, Thomas Puha. “In order to achieve this, Remedy has expanded into two game development teams.”

The last time Remedy worked on a AAA game which didn’t come exclusively to Xbox and Windows was Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne way back in 2003. Despite being in bed with them for years, Remedy Entertainment isn’t actually owned by Microsoft, much like Insomniac isn’t owned by Sony.

At least one of these new games is being developed in conjunction with a new partner, who Remedy says can’t be named at this point in time. The studio has been working on the game “for a while now already”, so it’s likely we could see it quite soon, despite Quantum Break only launching a couple of months ago.

"Finally," Puha concludes, "we feel that it’s important to set the expectations right and let you, the fans, know that neither of the two projects currently in development is an Alan Wake game. We’re working on something else, but at the same time we’re exploring opportunities in other mediums to tell more Alan Wake stories."

They could be telling porkies of course, but it looks as if Alan Wake 2 is indeed not in development, despite widespread rumours over the years. Whatever the studio's working on its sure  to be fascinating though. Quantum Break might not have pleased everyone, but you can't fault Remedy for trying something new.

I guess I can hope that one of these new games is Max Payne 4. I know Rockstar owns the rights now, but maybe the partner is Rockstar. MP2 was my favorite in the series and I'd love to see the series put back into the hands of Remedy.

I wish Max Payne 4 is released in upcoming years as there is a serious scarcity of third person pure shooters games when compared to first person pure shooters

They always try something new. So this is bound to be interesting
Disappointed that Quantum Break didnt turn out to be what it should have been, a new kind of game. I didnt actually play the game, but from what I see it isnt that good.
