Developer Remedy now own the rights to cult hit Alan Wake and are already hinting about a current gen multiformat remaster.

Remedy Entertainment has bought the rights to Alan Wake from Microsoft, paving the way to a possible current gen remaster and eventually sequel.

The game was originally an Xbox One and PC exclusive, that enjoyed relative success on the Xbox 360 and spawned digital-only spin-off Alan Wake’s American Nightmare.

Microsoft never commissioned a sequel but the two companies did work together again, on the disappointing Quantum Break.

The news that Remedy now owns the rights to Alan Wake came in their latest investor report, which reveals they made €2.5 million (£2.2m) from it and other back catalogue sales last year.

‘The only thing we want to clarify, now that Remedy owns the publishing rights, is that we could bring Alan Wake to different platforms if we so choose,’ Remedy told Eurogamer.

‘We have nothing to announce for now. We are fully focused on Control releasing on 27th August.’

We’ve been extremely impressed by Control every time we’ve seen, and to be honest it looks to be a better game than Alan Wake ever was – even though it does share some similarities in terms of the third person combat and fantasy themes.

But if you are an Alan Wake fan then the chances of a new game have just grown exponentially, although you probably won’t hear about even a remaster until well after Control is released.
