It seems Remedy’s 2010 horror-thriller, Alan Wake might be getting a remaster real soon as pre-order listings for PS4, PS5, and Xbox (Series & One) versions of the game were spotted on Rakuten Taiwan, an online retailer. 

The remaster was previously leaked when listings for Alan Wake Remastered and Final Fantasy VII Remake were found in the Epic Games Store backend, heavily hinting towards a PC version for both these titles.

Remedy acquired Alan Wake’s publishing rights from Microsoft in 2019, and it’s clear that the studio is preparing for the titular protagonist’s return as Control’s second expansion, AWE featured Alan Wake himself, clearly setting up a sequel that recently entered full production not too long ago.  

It would be interesting to see what changes Remedy brings to the table as the remaster could greatly benefit from modern technology, i.e – raytraced lighting, reflections, and shadows as Alan Wake’s atmosphere and lore depended on light and dark quite literally.
