Alan Wake Publishing Rights Acquired by Remedy from Microsoft
Through a financial report by Remedy Entertainment, we discover that the developer has reacquired the publishing rights of Alan Wake, the horror adventure published on Xbox 360 and PC. The Intellectual property was previously under the control of Microsoft.
Alan Wake, as a franchise, has been at a standstill for some time: Remedy has worked at Quantum Break, exclusively on Xbox One, and at the end of August the company will publish its new multi-platform title, Control via 505 Games.
In the financial communication, it is reported that Remedy Entertainment has obtained about 2.5 million euros of royalties from previously published games (Alan Wake is part of these). This gain, however, will not have any particular effect on the economic results of the year as the company continues to invest in new stocks and their success will have a great impact on the 2019 earnings.
Now that the publishing rights of Alan Wake are again in the hands of Remedy, we must not take a sequel for granted, but there is the possibility that the developers want to at least probe the ground with the remaster of a first chapter to be published on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, perhaps developed by an external team.
In recent news, Remedy confirmed that they were working on Alan Wake 2 but it just didn’t happen so.
What do you think about it? Would you be happy to play the saga again, or at this point do you think it’s better to focus only on new titles like Control? Tell us in the comments below.
