A retailer has let the cat out of the bag by listing Alan Wake Remastered. The listing shows an October 5 release date for PS5, PS4, and Xbox consoles. The game was spotted on the Epic Games Store database a couple of months ago. Analyst Daniel Ahmad, a senior analyst at Niko Partners, says that the game will be announced next week, possibly at the PlayStation Showcase event.

It has been over ten years since the original was released. Remedy has probably upgraded the game’s visuals considerably. It is unknown whether ray tracing or DLSS will be added to the game, but that is a possibility based on Control. A launch on the Epic Games Store is likely, as Remedy has signed a deal with Epic for the game’s sequel. The PC version could be a timed exclusive.

The existence of Alan Wake Remastered comes as no surprise. In June, Alan Wake Remastered and Final Fantasy 7 Remake were both spotted in Epic Games Store updates, suggesting a PC release was on the cards.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
