Remedy Says It "Could Bring Alan Wake To Different Platforms"
"We could bring Alan Wake to different platforms if we so choose."
Remedy says it "could bring Alan Wake to different platforms." The company earlier announced it had acquired the publishing rights to the series, which until now has only come to PC and Xbox 360, from Microsoft.
When asked by GameSpot what this meant for the future of the franchise, Remedy replied, "The only thing we want to clarify, now that Remedy owns the publishing rights, is that we could bring Alan Wake to different platforms if we so choose. We have nothing to announce for now."
Alan Wake and its spinoff, American Nightmare, were both published by Microsoft on Xbox 360 and self-published by Remedy on PC. The developer now solely holds the publishing rights, though it did not address the chances of a sequel. In the past, Remedy has repeatedly stated its desire to make Alan Wake 2, though it's unclear if that is more likely now. What is more likely, though by no means confirmed, is a PS4, Nintendo Switch, or Xbox One port of the existing Alan Wake games, which were released in 2010 and 2012, respectively.
We do know of one project already underway: a live-action Alan Wake television adaption is in development. The show is a collaboration between Remedy and movie production company Contradiction Films.
