Recent leaks have strongly suggested that Remedy Entertainment is going to announce a remaster of Alan Wake very soon (which would make sense, since it is also strongly rumoured that the developer is working on a sequel as well), and with a major event coming up in a couple of days in the form of the PlayStation Showcase on September 9, many are wondering whether that’s where we’ll be seeing its announcement. It seems, however, that that might not be the case.
Over on Twitter, VGC’s Andy Robinson and known insider Direct-Feed Games have both stated that Alan Wake Remastered is not going to be announced at the PlayStation Showcase. This is not, of course, officially confirmed information, but does make sense, seeing as Sony is billing this as a major event with announcements and updates for upcoming PS5 games in 2021 and beyond- and a remaster might not exactly be the kind of announcement Sony wants at the show.
Former PlayStation man David Jaffe – creator of God of War and Twisted Metal – has said that based on what he knows, people are going to “lose their minds” over the announcements that will be made at the show. Forspoken has a chance of showing up, while leaks have also suggested that the next God of War will be shown off, and that even a new inFamous game could possibly be announced.
That's not a PS show announcement

I don't think that's even in the showcase
