So Remedy is working on a new Alan Wake project. …and Microsoft doesn't seem to know anything about it.

Initially, it was believed the new title – Alan Wake's Night Springs – would land on XBLA later this year. But Microsoft Studios boss Phil Spencer has told Joystiq that developer Remedy Entertainment hasn't signed with anyone.

"I read that. I don't know that they've signed it with anybody."

Spencer went on to tell us the obvious; that Alan Wake didn't sell as well as they had hoped, but he did say Microsoft wants to work with Remedy again. "We have ongoing conversations with them," Spencer stated.

For a while now, PlayStation 3 owners have been hoping they'd see the next Alan Wake and with this fresh piece of unexpected though welcome news, it doesn't appear to be out of the realm of possibility.
