So, Remedy has acquired publishing rights for Alan Wake from Microsoft. Maybe they'll be able to make AW2 happen in the future as it looked like Microsoft wasn't interested in it.
And perhaps Playstation gamers will get to play Alan Wake remaster.
It's only the publishing rights to Alan Wake/American Nightmare that have expired and reverted to Remedy they could of made Alan Wake 2 anytime they wanted as they have always owned the Alan Wake IP and they did pitch it to many publishers but no one took them up on it. The only thing that has changed is they could port Alan Wake/American Nightmare to Switch/PS4 or maybe a remaster for next gen on all platforms.
Ah ok I didn't remember they already owned the IP. So this news was pretty much nothing lol. Well it's quiet here anyway..
I agree with Machiavellian, game pass would be a perfect place for Remedy to make their story-driven games. Not everything they do needs to be AAA anyway.
