It seems another retailer did out a game’s existence before its official announcement, as Remedy has today confirmed that Alan Wake Remastered is indeed a reality! It’s set for release this fall for the PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and on PC via Epic Games Store (Epic Games will be publishing the title).
The announcement was made on The Sudden Stop website that focuses on projects by Remedy Entertainment. Remedy has shared that the project is “nearing its completion,” and that it will include updated visuals.
Here’s an excerpt from the announcement by Sam Lake, Creative Director of Remedy:
The original game was only available for Xbox 360 and a few years later, PC. We are thrilled about the opportunity to bring the remastered version out for a new generation of platforms. I am excited to hear what you think about Alan Wake.
Alan Wake Remastered is the original experience you fell in love with all those years ago. We did not want to change that. But the visuals all around, including the character model of Alan Wake himself and the cinematics, have been updated and improved with some choice next-generation upgrades.
Alan Wake Remastered will launch this fall. Stay tuned for more information soon.
This is for you. I hope you enjoy it, either again, like meeting an old friend, or for the first time.
Sam Lake, Creative Director, Remedy Entertainment
As someone who loved the original back then, I am excited to go back to Bright Falls once more. Hopefully, this paves the way for a sequel down the road.
