Finnish studio Remedy Entertainment has released a video on its YouTube channel in honor of the upcoming 12th anniversary of action-adventure Alan Wake. In the 13-minute video, they shared three pieces of news about the future of the franchise.
First, surrounded by rumors and age ratings, the Switch version of the Alan Wake re-release still exists and will go on sale for the Nintendo hybrid console next fall.
Contrary to fears, we’re not talking about a cloud version: Alan Wake Remastered will run directly on the Nintendo Switch. The publication is planned digitally only. Details will be announced in the coming months.
Secondly, the promised summer presentation of survival horror Alan Wake II will not take place. According to Remedy leader Sam Lake (Sam Lake), it takes months and the attention of the team to create a good trailer or demo.
Development on Alan Wake II has now picked up a good pace (much of the content is already in a playable state) and the studio doesn’t want to distract the staff. Several concept arts of the ambitious sequel were shown as part of the video.
Third, during the video, it was announced that AMC Networks (The Walking Dead) had acquired the rights to create a series based on Alan Wake. Production has not started yet.
Alan Wake II is expected to be released in 2023 on PC (Epic Games Store), PS5, Xbox Series X and S. Alan Wake is voiced by Matthew Porretta, and Ilkka Villi will be making the appearance – Lake communicates with them throughout the video.
