Remedy records 2.5 million euros of one-time royalty income from previously released games

For its first half-year period of 2019, Remedy Entertainment Plc records approximately 2.5 million euros of royalties from previously released games as one-time income. The royalties are paid to Remedy during the second half-year period of 2019. In relation to this, the publishing rights of Alan Wake games are reverted to Remedy.

Fascinated by what this means.

I saw the hashtag Alan Wake trending on twitter (I check while waking up).

Various xbox fans seemed annoyed (like CrapGamer).  And I think more people were interested in a PS4 remake than they were in Alan wake 2.

I'd buy an Alan wake Remaster. I'm not sure I'd play it since I still remember the feeling/game fairly well. But I'd do it to support Alan Wake 2.

Guess they aren't being bought out by MS



Good game. Maybe the series will find new life--and maybe make it a little less "action-y and a little more cerebral...".

A man can dream, right?

They are being paid because the previous owner of the righta didnt want to be associated with that shitgame

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Maybe Microsoft had a 10 year contract for publishing.

Meh. We know that Remedy started working on Alan Wake 2 but decided to cancel it because it didn't worked or something like that, and Microsoft said that they would love it, but it was in the hands of Remedy.

So, the fact that Remedy now also owns the publishing rights, as well as the IP, doesn't really mean anything.

Well if they do a remake on PS5 maybe I'll look at it.

While this is great news if Remedy will port Alan Wake to multiple consoles (the Switch could also be in the mix), I believe Control will need to sell pretty good in order to make this happen. Since Control is what Remedy stated they wanted to get back to, it should be a pretty good benchmark on their capability in the market to see how well their game design, concept and marketing can work going multiplat after being under MS for so long.



I'd love to see a remake that returns the game back to its original vision. An open world thriller.
