After buying back the publishing rights to Alan Wake from Microsoft way back in 2019, Remedy Entertainment has done a lot with the IP.
For example, Remedy Entertainment released a remaster of the original 2010 title in 2021 after connecting Alan Wake to Control as part of the Remedy Connected Universe. At the same time, a sequel, Alan Wake 2, is in the works. Now Alan Wake Remastered is headed to the Nintendo Switch. But, that's not all. A TV show based on Alan Wake is in production after AMC Networks purchased the rights.
Remedy Entertainment revealed the information about Alan Wake in a video just days ahead of the franchise's 12th anniversary.
Creative director Sam Lake also shared some exciting news about Alan Wake 2, confirming that the sequel is still on track for a release next year. Lake added that the development isn't going well. Unfortunately, Lake also shot down all expectations that Remedy will drop footage of Alan Wake 2 this year. He explained that trailers are "several months of work that could take away from development."
If it's any consolation, Lake expressed his confidence in the video by saying that Alan Wake 2 will be the "best, and first, survival horror game," for the studio.
Remedy has plenty going on for the studio at the moment. In addition to Alan Wake 2, the studio is also working on a Control spin-off and sequel, as well as remakes of Max Payne 1 and 2. There are also rumors that Remedy is working on a Doctor Strange game.
