Following a leak over the weekend that saw listings on a Taiwanese retailer website, Alan Wake Remastered is now official and will be releasing for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC via Epic Games as announced via The Sudden Stop, an Alan Wake community site.
Alan Wake Remastered will release in the Fall of 2021 and is set to deliver 4K resolution along with the original 2 expansions and a director’s commentary.
Sam Lake, creative director of the game, pens a heartfelt message for the fans, saying “This is for you. Alan Wake came out over 11 years ago, and through that time, you have told us again and again how much you love the game, the story, the characters, and the lore. And that matters a lot to us. We love this game as well. I love this game. The remaster is coming because of your support for Alan Wake through the years.”
Lake continues by saying “That is why we felt it was fitting to make this announcement here, at The Sudden Stop, which has been an integral part of the Remedy community since back in 2012, when it started out as an Alan Wake fansite. The Remedy community wouldn’t be what it is today without The Sudden Stop, and we wanted to show our gratitude by telling you about Alan Wake Remastered right here. So thank you, Rachel, and everyone else, for supporting Remedy and our games through all these years.”
With this release, it will be the first time that the game will be headed to the PlayStation after being an Xbox 360 exclusive back in 2010.
