The rumor mill has been bubbling over Alan Wake for a long time, now it’s official: A remastered version of the original from 2010 will be released in 2021. A second part is also rumored, but Remedy is still silent here. The remastered version will be available for all common platforms.

Alan Wake Remastered will offer all of the content of the original, so in addition to the main program, the DLCs “The Writer” and “The Signal” will also be included – both of which were already available in the PC version released in 2012. It is still unclear how the remastered will differ from the original in detail. Remedy speaks of “newly rendered 4K graphics and new comments from Creative Director Sam Lake“.

Apart from that, Remedy continues to make the remastered quite a secret. Screenshots or videos, for example, are still completely missing, so it is completely open to what extent technology and optics have really been improved. An exact publication date is also missing, more than the information “Autumn 2021” does not exist yet.

Since it was first released on Xbox 360 eleven years ago, Alan Wake has been an exclusive game available on Xbox and later on Windows PC.

On PC, Alan Wake Remastered will be released on the Epic Games Store. Since Epic Games Publishing serves as the publisher, it can be assumed that the title will remain permanently exclusive on Epic and that Steam will be completely excluded.

ComputerBase received the information from Epic Games Publishing in advance. The manufacturer did not exert any influence on the reporting, and there was no obligation to publish. The only requirement was the earliest possible publication date.
