Remedy refuses to put value on Alan Wake publishing rights deal but hints at bringing game to new platforms

Finnish games developer Remedy won't say how much it paid for the publishing rights to cult 2010 horror hit Alan Wake, but the studio does hint that it'll be bringing the title to other platforms.

Responding to PCGamesInsider.biz's request for comment as to the valuation of the deal, the Espoo, Finland-based studio said that the only thing it wanted to clear up is what it would be doing with the publishing rights for Alan Wake now that it had them. The firm also clarified that it had nothing to reveal at this time.

“The only thing we want to clarify, now that Remedy owns the publishing rights, is that we could bring Alan Wake to different platforms if we so choose," a spokesperson for the company said.

"We have nothing to announce for now. We are fully focused on Control releasing on the 27th of August.”

Remedy revealed yesterday (Monday, July 1st) that it had snapped up the publishing rights to one of its most beloved games from Microsoft, also saying that it would receive $2.8m in royalties incurred from the first half of 2019 during the latter six months of the year.

The company's next project, Control, is being published by 505 Games. You can read more about the state of Remedy and its plans for the future in this chat with comms boss Thomas Puha
