Listings hint an ‘Alan Wake’ remaster is coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X in October

That long-standing murmur of an Alan Wake revival could only have some value. Well-known detective Wario64 discovered Rakuten lists for an Alan Wake remastered title that will be released on October 5th on PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X / S. The store pages don’t say anything about what’s new, but assume you will see resolution improvements and other upgrades that you would expect from the remaster of the psychological thriller of 2010.

An ally of Microsoft for the past 11 years, Remedy released high profile games like Alan Wake and Quantum Break as Xbox and PC exclusives while releasing a handful of games (like a restart of the Death Rally) on mobile. However, the developer reclaimed the publishing rights to Alan Wake in 2019 and signaled his platform independence with the introduction of Control on PlayStation and (possibly) the Nintendo Switch.

The studio will continue to support Microsoft with exclusive products such as the online shooter CrossfireX. However, the listings suggest that Remedy is looking to expand its horizons – including reviving games that many PlayStation owners were never able to try the first time.
