Remedy Entertainment Regains Alan Wake Publishing Rights

Ever since its initial release in 2010, things haven’t been kind to Alan Wake. Despite receiving praise from both critics and fans, and, apparently, having a lot of support from the developers to continue the titular author’s adventures (a sequel was planned and in development for a while), it very much looked like this story had ended, due to issues regarding publishing rights. However, things just might be looking up, as said publishing rights have now reverted back to the original developer, Remedy Entertainment.

The publishing rights to Alan Wake have reverted from Microsoft to developer Remedy Entertainment, an announcement to investors has confirmed. The announcement also mentioned that Remedy has received a one-time payment of 2.5 million Euros from previously released games.

Now it seems Remedy is interested in bringing the mystery adventure to more platforms after it was previously only available on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One (via backwards compatibility). “The only thing we want to clarify, now that Remedy owns the publishing rights, is that we could bring Alan Wake to different platforms if we so choose,” a Remedy spokesperson told Eurogamer.

For now, Remedy says, it’s focused on its upcoming mindbending adventure, Control, which will be available August 27th. After that game arrives, though, we might hear more about the future of Alan Wake.

In the meantime, fans can look forward to the Alan Wake TV show that’s still in the works. Admittedly, there’s been no new info on the project in almost a year, and it could end up not coming to pass, but it might be just the thing to not only placate fans, but also rejuvenate interest in the brand and make a sequel more profitable for Remedy.
