Sam Lake—you bastard child of Vincent Price and Stephen King—don't you ever change. Even when explaining the massive disappointment that was the distinct lack of Alan Wake 2 at yesterday’s Xbox One reveal, the guy who put words in Max Payne’s mouth still manages to come across as hypnotically charming.

Lake says that reveals that the psychological horror franchise has sold 3 million copies over its lifetime and promises that Quantum Break will fold in everything they learned from making Alan Wake and Max Payne games. But, man, that last scene… not exactly a wellspring of hope for AW fans, huh, Sam?
