Yeah, we haven't had much reason to mention old Alan Wake's
name for a while, but news has broken today that the previously Microsoft Studios
-published franchise, has been handed wholly back to developer, Remedy
. And this means the once Xbox
family of systems exclusive IP, could now find new multi-platform homes, should Remedy choose to take Alan to new audiences.
But get ready for the cliffhanger -- Remedy themselves updated Eurogamer
on the situation confirming that, yes, they now had Alan Wake in their own custody, but that they were firmly focused only on their upcoming release, Control
, and that any hopes of new Alan, or even redistributed Alan, would be taking a backseat.
"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," a spokesperson said to Eurogamer. "We have nothing to announce for now. We are fully focused on Control releasing on 27th August."
At least it's something to ponder, PC
and Nintendo Switch

Remedy released it on PC well after they finished up on Alan Wake: American Nightmare
Quantum Break was the next aquisition. An amazingly sci-fi mind-bending masterpiece of time machines and cloak & dagger betrayals
Control look's like it might be alright, although not enough for a pre-order just yet
