Following a deluge of new rumors, Remedy Entertainment has confirmed Alan Wake is getting a remake later this Fall.
What a week we have upon us! Not only do we the PlayStation Showcase coming this Thursday but now our hearts are filled with joy to find out the Alan Wake Remaster has been confirmed.
Sam Lake, Creative Director at Remedy Entertainment confirmed this morning that the Remaster is close to being completed and will be coming to Xbox, Series X|S, PC, and for the first time ever PlayStation consoles!
Early on in the game Alan Wake says, “In a horror story the victim keeps asking why – but there can be no explanation, and there shouldn’t be one, the unanswered mystery is what stays with us the longest, and it’s what we remember in the end.” This is an idea close to my heart. Stories that make me think excite me, stories where everything is not freely handed out to me or wrapped up neatly, where I am left with a mystery. Mysteries are magical to me, they hold a promise, and I am often happier with that than a final answer. This is what we as a team, and I as the lead writer of Alan Wake, set out to create for you a long time ago.
This story and character were personal in many ways. Alan Wake, being a writer himself, gave me an opportunity to use what I do and love as a writer as an element in the story. Alan Wake also contained the mystery of forests and lakes, which are precious to me as a Finn. And, instead of a focused one-note horror fare, it was this strange, even wasteful mix of horror, humor and supernatural mystery. I also love it because it turned out to be a very hard game to make, with many struggles along the way, and that makes me even prouder of what we achieved.
The original game was only available for Xbox 360 and a few years later, PC. We are thrilled about the opportunity to bring the remastered version out for a new generation of platforms. I am excited to hear what you think about Alan Wake.
Alan Wake Remastered is the original experience you fell in love with all those years ago. We did not want to change that. But the visuals all around, including the character model of Alan Wake himself and the cinematics, have been updated and improved with some choice next-generation upgrades.
Alan Wake Remastered will launch this fall. Stay tuned for more information soon.
This is for you. I hope you enjoy it, either again, like meeting an old friend, or for the first time.
Sam Lake, Creative Director, Remedy Entertainment
