Over the past few weeks, rumors have been swirling regarding the release of a new Alan Wake game. The original rumors pegged the name as “Alan Wake: Night Springs” which made a lot of sense as Night Springs was the name of the a television show inside the game world. However, this was proven to be incorrect at last night’s VGA as a trailer was officially shown for Alan Wake: American Nightmare.
American Nightmare will not be an official prequel or sequel to the original and it isn’t considered as DLC to the original either. It looks to be a downloadable XBLA title that will follow Mr. Scratch, a rather mean alter-ego of Alan Wake that was first introduced in previous Alan Wake DLC.
Hit the jump to see the trailer for yourself.
There has been no release date for American Nightmare – and there has yet to even be an official announcement of an Alan Wake sequel – but at least there’s something for the fans of this series to bide their time over until one such announcement is made.
