Remedy gain Alan Wake publishing rights

Remedy gain Alan Wake publishing rights

Original Story: Remedy Entertainment, developer behind the upcoming Control, has purchased the publishing rights to one of its most sought-after games, Alan Wake. Before now, if Remedy were to make a sequel to the game, it would have been exclusive to Xbox and PC platforms. In a press release from Remedy, the company revealed that they had received a royalty fee for their previously released games, in the amount of €2.5 million. This would eventually be revived for a 2012 Steam release with Microsoft eventually greenlighting the project after Remedy repeatedly asking.

US, China agree to truce in the trade wars
Presidents Trump and Xi agreed to resume trade talks that broke down in May and to stop imposing new tariffs for now. Trump said had an "excellent" meeting with Xi on the sidelines of the G-20 Summit in Osaka, Japan.

Whether or not Alan Wake and its sequel American Nightmare will be ported over to other platforms wasn't announced. The lack of a new release stems, at least in part, from Remedy's partnership with Microsoft - last year, the company's CEO said that the publisher's involvement meant that the series was never taken further. The publishing rights for Alan Wake have now reverted to Remedy, so Alan Wake 2 is now a real possibility once again. Now that the development team also owns the publishing rights, we may see a brand new Alan Wake game. Remedy is now busy with its new supernatural action adventure game, Control, which releases on August 27th. The popular horror title was originally released on the Xbox 360 back in 2010, although Microsoft published the game, meaning a PlayStation version of Alan Wake was just a pipe dream at the time.
