Remedy's Next Game will Probably Use TV-Inspired Structure from Quantum Break and Alan Wake - News

Remedy is known for its storytelling in video games with the original Max Payne and Alan Wake. It will be taking it even further with its next game Quantum Break

The developer has taken inspiration from TV shows and has built on the foundation of its previous games. The next game the developer works on, after Quantum Break, will probably be an evolution of the lessons learned.


"We have always wanted to push the storytelling in games," Quantum Break art director Saku Lahtinen told Xbox Achievements. "Games are for fun, but are also a medium that is tremendously powerful and capable of telling great stories and conveying experiences.

"Alan Wake taught us to take inspiration from TV shows. Quantum Break builds on that foundation and we have taken many steps in the field of character and face technology to be even better at relaying the story. We have learned to work with international stars, bridging storylines and an actual live-action element. 

"In a way it’s even more of a journey towards what is good in a TV show, while actually taking a step towards embodying what is a good action game at its core. My hunch is that our next game will be an evolution of these lessons learned, rather than attempting to conquer even more new ground."

If MS is willing to fund the games and consider PC ports, I think Remedy will keep working with MS.

I think he's saying they like the TV show style structure and will continue doing that. Which isnt surprising from Remedy.

If this game turns into episodic releases like Hitman is going to be, I will puke.

Afaik the game ships with all of the gameplay chapters plus the first season of the TV show on disc. After each gameplay chapter, there's a big choice you have to make, and depending on the choice you make, an episode of the tv show will play based on that choice (so multiple versions of each TV episode have been filmed). The TV show episodes are optional, you can skip them if you want to go straight to the next gameplay chapter.

Yes, having less and less actual gameplay is what gamers want! I can't help but feel like this is going to be The Order of 2016.

Mr Puggsly (on 29 January 2016)

Based on what we've seen, the gameplay is more ambitious than The Order. However, the gun play in The Order is better than credit given.
