Alan Wake Dev: New Consoles Are A "Quantum Leap" Forward
A lot of developers are working on next-gen projects right now, as indicated by multiple job listings and every now and then, the developers themselves.
The most recent studio to reveal they're working on something for new hardware is Alan Wake designer Remedy Entertainment. In speaking to the German branch of GamesIndustry International (and as translated at GameSpot), Remedy head of franchise development Oskari Häkkinen said the new machines will indeed be much more powerful.
"Right now we're working as always with a relatively small team on a next generation project. You always ask yourself: Can the new consoles really be that much better than the old ones? Be assured: They are. It is a quantum leap forward."
There's no knowing if he's talking about the new PlayStation or Xbox (or both), but he did use the phrase "they are," so you have to assume he's referring to both. Then again, translations can be wonky. We're just hoping Remedy decides to bring Alan Wake into the next generation; it was only available on the 360 this generation but it was well worth playing. Still one of the better stories told in the past five or six years.
