Remedy Entertainment Acquires Alan Wake

Publishing rights for Alan Wake mystery adventure game series goes back to Remedy Entertainment from Microsoft.

After their successful run on Max Payne series in early 2000's, Finnish developer studio Remedy Entertainment partnered up with Microsoft Studios to work on their action-adventure title Alan Wake of 2010 that would receive critically acclaim.

Despite garnering positive response from all, they could never make a proper sequel without getting approval of its publisher. Lately, Remedy gains publishing rights for their highly praised supernatural thriller franchise from Microsoft.

Although there are no words on whether they will go for a remake or a full sequel now, a spokesperson stated the following on behalf of Remedy.

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.

Remedy Entertainment saw the first game as Season 1 based on the life of best-selling thriller novelist lead character and had six episodes with additional DLC packs as special episodes but Alan Wake 2 was postponed due to financial reasons.
