We’ve had an inkling for awhile that Alan Wake would be returning sometime. Sam Lake, head writer for the original game (as well as the director for the upcoming Quantum Breakbasically said as much in an unorthodox (and highly entertaining) interview over at Game Informer.

Well it seems like that day might be coming sooner rather than later as Remedy Entertainment seems to have fast-tracked a trademark for “Alan Wake’s Return.” This eagle-eyed Neogaf poster first noticed the trademark today and noted that it was done via “FastTrack” meaning “someone was (probably) in a hurry” to get the thing through.

He also noted that Remedy has trademarked a website with the same name in the last year.

Does that mean we’ll be seeing a new Alan Wake sometime soon? With Quantum Break due out this year, it’s likely that Remedy Entertainment will be looking ahead to their next new project, and people have been clamouring for a return of Alan Wake since the first game’s impressive reception.

Of course, this is little more than a rumor. Filing a trademark hardly means anything in this day and age and Remedy may just be staking their claim for the distant future. Or maybe Lake himself is writing a book. Or a movie. It’s hard to say what this could mean. But the timing seems to be telling if nothing else.

What do you think, single players? Is this a portend of an Alan Wake sequel? What would you like to see out of Alan Wake 2?
