Alan Wake teases more platforms.
Alan Wake

Remedy Entertainment has regained the publishing rights to the Alan Wake franchise from Microsoft.

The development studio is currently working on Control, but they apparently found a bit of time to acquire the rights to the horror-action romp starring an author. The company told investors that they would earn €2.5 million on royalties for "previously released games" this fiscal year.

Alan Wake was released back in 2010 as an Xbox 360 exclusive title. The game focuses on an author as he tries to survive in the fictional town of Bright Falls. The game was broken up into chapters and even included a couple of DLC expansions.

A sequel, Alan Wake 2, was worked on for an unknown amount of time. However, that project was eventually canceled. Currently, an Alan Wake TV series is currently in development from Remedy and Contradiction Films. Control is an upcoming third-person action title will be out on August 27, 2019 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC via Epic Games Store.

There is one more interesting piece of news to go along with this. Remedy, in speaking to Eurogamer, said that they "could bring Alan Wake to different platforms" if they wanted to. However, as of right now they have nothing to announce concerning the release of Alan Wake on platforms like the PlayStation 4.

Alan Wake is already available on PC and can be yours via Steam (70% off during the Summer Sale). I do have to wonder if Remedy wants to move Alan Wake to the Epic Games Store at some point given that Control is exclusive there. It would be weird, but stranger things have happened.
