Remedy Entertainment and Epic Games have officially confirmed that the classic Xbox 360 title, Alan Wake, has been remastered and will be released during the Fall. The remaster confirmation comes in the wake of a retail leak posting the games release date as October 5th. Remedy and Epic themselves have yet to finalise the actual date, but it’s a safe bet that it won’t be too far out of the leak release date, if not that date itself. After all, October is the perfect time to release this gem of a horror title.
The game is set to be released on Xbox One, Xbox Series, PS4, PS5 and PC, making this the first time the game will be releasing on Sony’s machines.
A remastered version of Alan Wake has been a hope for many for years, along with a possible sequel. Now that Remedy owns the Alan Wake license again – previously Microsoft held it – it’s entirely possible that the much-requested sequel could possibly happen. Remedy hasn’te been sitting quietly on the Alan Wake IP as they’ve been busy expanding and connecting their various games universes, with an Alan Wake themed expansion releasing for Control last year.
The remaster will come with all of the games expansions, 4K visuals and new commentary from creative director, Sam Lake.
