Epic Publishing Remasters Alan Wake
Ever see someone clamoring to remaster a game so long that their mind thinks it has been updated and ready for modern consoles? Alan Wake was a favorite of mine. My brain now knows that Alan Wake Remastered will bring Remedy’s action game from 2010 to PC, PlayStation 5, and PlayStation 4. It will also be available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PlayStation 4 in the fall. Epic Games Publishing will be publishing the remaster. It will only be available through the Epic Games Store for PC.
On The Sudden Stop, director Sam Lake announced the official release of Alan Wake Remastered. It was confirmed that the main game, as well as its two expansions, “The Signal” (and “The Writer”), will be available on all systems and in 4K on the applicable platforms. A new commentary track by Alan Wake creative director Sam Lake is also included.
Alan Wake: Remastered is the first time this game will be available on a PlayStation. The original Xbox 360 exclusive was released in 2010 by Microsoft. Remedy also published a PC port in 2012.
There are more remedies:
- Remedy’s Control Gets a Multiplayer Spinoff and Possibly More
- Control Team Working On Remedy’s Next Big Game
- Despite Claims, it Was Impossible, Control: Ultimate Edition Was Briefly Available to Season Pass Owners
Remedy and Epic have collaborated a lot in recent years. From Control being an Epic Game Store exclusive for PC users to a partnership to develop the next game, the publisher paid $10 million. Remedy will receive full funding from Epic, while Remedy can retain any IP rights to make a sequel.
It’s not clear if Alan Wake’s American Nightmare will ever be remastered. This spin-off was released on Xbox 360 in 2012 and PC in 2012. Alan Wake has been referenced in Remedy’s Control over the years. This DLC crossed over both games and was called “AWE.”
