Alan Wake Will Horrify Us Once Again With Remaster This Fall

Write Your Way Out Of This Horror

Alan Wake

Alan Wake launched on Xbox 360 all the way back in 2010. While it drew acclaim at the time, it didn’t sell to expectations. After a few pieces of DLC and a side game didn’t catch fire either, it seemed the team at Remedy were moving on, content to include references to the game in their newer titles like Control.

Not so fast. While it isn’t a brand new game, Remedy are unearthing this horrifying adventure once more. Alan Wake Remastered will launch this fall on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. While PC fans eventually saw the original game, this will be the first chance for PlayStation players to check it out.

Alan Wake

Sam Lake, Creative Director at Remedy, actually revealed the remaster through a fan site. He said, “This is for you. Alan Wake came out over 11 years ago, and through that time, you have told us again and again how much you love the game, the story, the characters, and the lore. And that matters a lot to us. We love this game as well. I love this game. The remaster is coming because of your support for Alan Wake through the years.”

You can check out the full letter at The Sudden Stop. Other details are still thin but we’ll have more information about this exciting remaster when it becomes available.

Andrew has been writing about video games for nearly twenty years, contributing to publications such as DarkStation, Games Are Fun, and the E-mpire Ltd. network. He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
