Although the original Alan Wake series remained dormant for more than a decade, plans were already in motion for the title in other directions. In that, Peter Calloway (Cloak & Dagger) is working on a television series with Contradiction Films. However, the IP began to resurface more recently following claims that an alleged sequel is on the way. GamesBeat’s Jeff Grubb told that the firm under Epic Games is drafting the follow-up to the 2010 release then.
Additionally, it was later discovered over in Taiwan Rakuten that Alan Wake Remastered is potentially in the pipeline – at least it is recorded legally. More interesting is that the once Xbox exclusive release is now listed for PlayStation for the first time ever. This week Remedy Entertainment addressed that the game is planned to ship later this fall for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation.
It was at Thursday’s PlayStation 5 Showcase that Alan Wake Remastered was revealed to launch in the first week of October. You can watch the new announcement trailer in the video below:
“Alan Wake Remastered is the graphically enhanced version of the original game first released in 2010,” Remedy Entertainment Creative Director Sam Lake writes. ”Now, we are bringing you the complete Alan Wake experience, including the two story-expansions The Signal and The Writer, originally released as DLCs, with all-new 4K visuals, updated environments, cutscenes, and a brand-new making-of commentary where I take a trip down memory lane.“
One interesting mention is the timing of the announcement: it was recently addressed that Remedy Entertainment/Epic Games cooperation just initiated. It is best to guess that Alan Wake Remastered was not completely reworked for modern hardware in less than a couple of months and something more is to come later on.
