Thanks to a post on Reddit, we could have a glimpse at a brand new Remedy mission within the works. Information is routinely scraped from the Epic Games Store, which typically results in the invention of recent video games and merchandise hidden within the retailer’s file system. Today, a curious folder string was discovered inside Remedy Entertainment’s files studying: {dirUser}/Remedy/AlanWakeRemastered/. Could an upgraded model of Alan Wake be on the horizon?

As of the writing of this story, the folder has been renamed to “Heron” and its listing has been given the overarching title of “HeronStaging.” Other files from Remedy within the Epic Game Store also use the “Heron” name going back to 2019, at least the folders themselves have been there that long. Staging, on the other hand, is usually a place where objects are grouped or assembled in preparation for a project. Because we know a folder in here was previously named “AlanWakeRemastered,” we are able to infer that is now a correctly codenamed retailer web page for a potential remaster being launched by Remedy or Epic.  

The potential of an Alan Wake remaster has some implications for one more Remedy game coming down the road. Last 12 months, Epic Games introduced it was partnering with Remedy Entertainment to publish video games from the Finnish developer. The deal is claimed to be for 2 video games set in the identical sequence, one in all which is to be a extra bold triple-A title, whereas the opposite can be smaller in scale. If this remaster is certainly revealed by Epic Games, and the 2 video games being revealed are purported to be a part of one franchise, there’s a good chance we may finally see a sequel to Alan Wake. While none of that is official but, the proof is slowly mounting to level in that specific path.

Alan Wake hasn’t been fully dormant for the reason that unique game launched again in 2010 on the Xbox 360. It obtained a stand-alone mini-spinoff referred to as Alan Wake’s American Nightmare in 2012, and most not too long ago Control’s AWE enlargement final August regarded into the extraordinary forces of Cauldron Lake from the unique Alan Wake. The unique can also be accessible to play on PC, by means of the Epic Game Store amongst different locations.

Here’s a enjoyable Replay we did of Alan Wake from final 12 months if you wish to see what the game is like. What would you need from a sequel to Alan Wake, or is there something you’d prefer to see addressed in a remaster of the unique? Let us know within the feedback!
