Next Gen Consoles will be a quantum leap over Xbox 360 and PS3

According to Remedy Entertainment, whose most recent work includes the Alan Wake franchise, the next generation of consoles is a “quantum leap” compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3. Spotted on NeoGaf, a recent interview with Oskari Hakkinen of the developer explains how Remedy is already working on a next-gen title.

“Can the new consoles really be that much better than the previous? Rest assured, they are, it is a quantum leap,” Hakkinen told the reporter. Hakkinen didn’t specify what new title Remedy Entertainment was working on, but the development house has said it was interested in revisiting the Alan Wake franchise with a proper sequel.

This generation, the developer has released two titles in the Alan Wake franchise; Alan Wake and Alan Wake: American Nightmare. Just how far along is this new title? According to Hakkinen, Remedy has been working on this next-gen title for some time, despite no announcements from either Microsoft or Sony on their plans for the next generation.

We’ve seen concept videos from Epic Games, Crytek, and Square Enix recently that have also pointed to a considerable leap in graphical fidelity when the next generation finally arrives.
