Alan Wake On PlayStation Could Happen, As Rights Revert Back To Remedy

The developer teased the multiplatform potential, though they're focused on another game for now.

Dark things could be on the horizon, but in a good way. In a press release this morning, Remedy Entertainment announced that publishing rights for the Alan Wake series have reverted to Remedy, following a one-time income of previous royalties from games.

Remedy records 2.5 millions euros of royalties from previously released games for 2019, according to the release, which will be paid to the studio during the second half of the year. But in relation, this means the publishing rights for Alan Wake have reverted to Remedy.

Could this mean another Alan Wake on the horizon? For the time being, probably not. In a recent interview, Remedy's director of communications Thomas Puha was asked about an Alan Wake 2 and hopes didn't seem high.

"We were working on Alan Wake 2 years ago and it just didn't pan out, so there's nothing," Puha told VG247. "We're booked solid for the next couple of years, really."

But in a comment to Eurogamer, Remedy teased the possibility of a multi-platform presence for its writer-horror property.

"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," a Remedy spokesperson told Eurogamer. "We have nothing to announce for now. We are fully focused on Control releasing on 27th August."

Considering Alan Wake already came to Steam last year, a PlayStation release could be in the cards. Either way, Remedy seems focused on their upcoming game Control, which is a much more atmospheric and environmental kind of action game, more akin to Quantum Break.
