Remedy Entertainment’s horror title Alan Wake has a strong and dedicated fanbase, owing to how excellent the game was. Fans have been begging for a sequel for years, and though one was in pre-production many years ago, unfortunately, it just isn’t something that materialized. Well, hopes for the sequel still remain up in the air, but there are new developments as far as the first game is concerned.

Remedy Entertainment recently released a statement announcing that they have managed to acquire the publishing rights to Alan Wake, which previously rested with Microsoft. This is in relationship to a royalty payout of €2.5 million for previous releases. Though the Alan Wake IP itself was and is owned by Remedy, the publishing rights to the first game in the series, which released for the Xbox 360 in 2010 and for PC in 2012, rested with Microsoft, but have now reverted to the Finnish developer.

It’ll be interesting to see how this affects the game and its future. For all we know, it could mean nothing – owning publishing rights to a game but not doing anything with those rights isn’t unheard of – but it also does open up the possibility of Alan Wake remasters- and not just for Xbox platforms. Fingers crossed?

In the meantime, the game Remedy is currently working on, Controllaunches August 27 for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
