Remedy confirms Alan Wake Remastered, but not the date

Alan Wake developer Remedy has put a stop to all recent Alan Wake Remastered speculations by confirming them. Via an open letter on The Sudden Stop, creative director Sam Lake shared the info with the community. Most of what we’ve heard seems to be accurate, except for the release date of October 5. There’s no mention of that whatsoever.

Instead of giving us an actual date, Lake speaks of a release this fall. So, technically, October 5 could still work. Then again, does that date really matter now? I mean, having the confirmation is great news in itself, especially for the PlayStation gamers among us. With the original launching exclusively on Xbox (and later on PC), they’ve had to wait over a decade to have a go at it.

As you might expect from a remaster, Alan Wake Remastered will provide us with all the original content, but somewhat upgraded. Just so you know, there are no changes made to the story whatsoever, just the visuals. Sam really wants to make sure everybody gets that. Really.

“Alan Wake Remastered is the original experience you fell in love with all those years ago. We did not want to change that. But the visuals all around, including the character model of Alan Wake himself and the cinematics, have been updated and improved with some choice next-generation upgrades.

Alan Wake Remastered will launch this fall, with more info coming soon.
