Jeff Grubb von Gamesbeat, who previously made comments repeated and claims that Remedy has given green light for a complete continuation of the Alan Wake Remastered announced for the October 5, 2021.
Maybe this statement is underpinned by a statement, which was already made in March 2020. It said that the two Games of the Publishing Deal between Remedy and Epic will be an AAA multiplatform game and a second smaller project playing in the same franchise.
Jeff Grubb said during a Giant Bomb Stream: You are planning a Alan Wake continuation. That’s something I’ve talked about … They work with Epic Games on the production of Alan Wake 2, or at least it is in the planning phase. So this is something concrete and real? I am confident. I guess so. I can not imagine that it will be derailed.
Remedy is very busy. They are great, super busy, so we have to wait and see if there is something out of it or not. But yes, Alan Wake Remastered means that you get back Alan Wake and say: ‘Hey, that’s one of our key franchises, we want people to remember’.
Remedy acquired publishing rights to Alan Wake in July 2019, which was developed in 2010 for Xbox 360, from the original Publisher Microsoft. Creative Director Sam Lake, then revealed that he has ambitions for a Alan-Wake continuation.
I want to do it. It’s a strange thing. At this point, so much time has passed. I feel that the bar is higher in some ways. It must be done properly when it is done.
Everything must fit, and that’s really hard to accomplish. So that these great games get green light, so many things must be brought in line. But I hope it’s one day …
Alan Wake Remastered will be released on 5 October 2021 for consoles and PC and will also contain the two extensions next to the original game.
