Remedy has dropped a whack of Alan Wake related info as part of the game’s 12th anniversary. Along with news on Alan Wake 2, Alan Wake Remastered will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. In addition, for those who have been waiting on that Alan Wake TV series, Remedy has finally snagged a deal to bring the series to fruition.
For starters, Epic Games Publishing and Remedy will release Alan Wake Remastered for the Switch via Nintendo eShop this fall. The Switch version will be digital-only, and run natively on the hardware. More info about the port will be released in the coming months.
As for the Alan Wake TV series, Remedy has teamed up with AMC to finally bring the series to life. According to Remedy’s communications director, Thomas Puha, the adaptation still has “a long way to go” before production begins, but it’s at least a good starting point.
Lastly, Remedy took the opportunity on Alan Wake‘s 12th anniversary to drop a new video, as well as new concept art for the upcoming Alan Wake 2! “Everything with Alan Wake 2 development is going really well. We are deep in production, have a lot of material, and a great deal of the game is playable,” said Remedy’s Sam Lake.
However, there’s a bit of a snag for those hoping to see more of the game later this summer. “But we’ve been talking for the past couple of months and have come to the decision here at Remedy, along with our wonderful publisher Epic Games, that we will not be showing anything big this summer.”
“To create a proper, polished demo or a trailer takes a lot of effort, and it’s several months of work that could take away from development,” Lake continues. “We feel that we have momentum going, and we want to make sure we are creating the best, and first, survival horror game for Remedy. We don’t want to take the team away from that focus, so we’re going to keep going and making a great game experience, and unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a bit longer for a demo and trailer.”
In the meantime, Remedy has revealed the aforementioned concept art, which you can see below. Alan Wake 2 is currently in development for 2023.
