Remedy Entertainment has announced that Alan Wake Remastered is real and will be released later this year, between September and November. Alan Wake is receiving a remastered version for multiple platforms. The editorial arm of Epic Games will release Alan Wake Remastered on PlayStation 4/5, Xbox Series S/X and the Epic Games Store on PC.
Originally an Xbox 360 exclusive title that went through a long period of development, Alan Wake is a psychological thriller in which the player plays a writer in search of his missing wife in the Pacific Northwest. The game was later released for the PC version in the year 2012, but Alan Wake Remastered has stated that it will be the first time it will be available on PlayStation platforms.
Epic says the remaster will feature “new 4K-rendered visuals,” from commentary by writer and creative director Sam Lake, to The Signal and The Writer expansions. Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, influenced by the Pulp horror, apparently won’t be included.
Last year, Epic announced a publishing deal it would have signed with Remedy for two titles, one of which the studio described as a “AAA cross-platform production”, in this case with the other being a smaller project in the same universe. It’s still unclear whether Alan Wake Remastered is the last project, in case it turns out to be the last one, it all points to a possible sequel to Alan Wake. Remedy’s latest game, the critically acclaimed Control, also had some of the subtle references to Alan Wake.
There is still no definitive release date for Alan Wake Remastered however but it shouldn’t be too far off. In an Epic publication he hinted that it should be available later this fall.
