Fans of Alan Wake are in luck as tons of Alan Wake news was released today, including a development update on Alan Wake 2, details about an Alan Wake TV adaptation, and the announcement that Alan Wake Remastered is heading to the Nintendo Switch! You can learn more about all three topics below or by watching the above video:
Alan Wake Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch
Last year, we released Alan Wake Remastered for Xbox, PlayStation platforms and PC. Today, we’re excited to announce that players will be able to visit Bright Falls on Nintendo Switch when Alan Wake Remastered launches for the platform this fall. The game will launch as a digital Nintendo Switch release only, and runs natively on the hardware. We’ll show more in the coming months, and we’re excited to share Alan Wake’s story with Nintendo fans for the first time.
Alan Wake 2 Development Update
We revealed Alan Wake 2 at The Game Awards last December, and back then, we promised to show off the long-awaited follow-up this summer. Our plans have since changed, as they sometimes do when making games.
Here’s the update on the development of Alan Wake 2 that Sam shared in the video.
“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 Lake. “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,” he continued. “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.”
Alan Wake 2 is slated for a 2023 release and is being published by Epic Games.
Remedy partnering with AMC Networks on Alan Wake TV adaptation
Back in late 2018, Remedy announced that an Alan Wake TV show was in the works. Today we’ve announced that it is… still in the works, but we now have a partner. We are very happy to reveal that AMC Networks (The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad) has bought the rights to the Alan Wake TV series. There’s still a long way to go for the series to become a reality, but we are excited, to say the least, about this latest development.
