‘Alan Wake Remastered’ release date is set this fall with ‘choice next-generation upgrades’
Shortly after an online leak, Remedy Entertainment creative director Sam Lake confirmed the existence of “Alan Wake Remastered.” The even better news is that the game will launch this fall and will come to PlayStation consoles for the first time.
Earlier this week, it has been reported that a retailer in Taiwan had listed “Alan Wake Remastered” a little too early. It followed another leak from June that suggested it would be available through the Epic Games Store.
Lake posted a letter to the “Alan Wake” fans on Tuesday confirming its remastered version is launching soon. The creative director did not provide a specific release date but announced that the game will be available this fall.
“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,” Lake wrote. “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 also said Remedy chose to make the announcement through The Sudden Stop community website to further show the studio’s gratitude to the “Alan Wake” fanbase.
The game was originally exclusive to Xbox when it launched in 2010, then a PC port became available on Steam about two years later. Now, Lake announced that the release of “Alan Wake Remastered” is being done in partnership with Epic Games Publishing, confirming that its PC release will be available through the Epic Games Store. Lake also confirmed that the remaster will launch on both PS4 and PS5 and will be available as well in its original platform Xbox.
In the same statement, Lake confirmed that the “Alan Wake Remastered” will feature the same narrative that original fans loved about the game. And by bringing the game to modern gaming platforms, Lake said fans can expect “updated and improved” visuals, character models, and cinematic scenes.
Full-fledged PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions were not mentioned in the announcement. But Lake said “Alan Wake Remastered” will feature “some choice next-generation upgrades.”
