A PlayStation blog post about the title reveals more details about the game’s story. This includes the fact that Wake’s wife, Alice went missing as they ventured to the idyllic Bright Falls in Washington. Soon, Wake discovers a story called “Departure” which he cannot recall writing. It is a story about how “Bright Falls is taken over by a Dark Presence” and slowly turns into a reality.

Back when Remedy was acquired by Epic in March 2020, the developer was set to release two games. The first was to be a “AAA multi-platform game” while the second was to be a “smaller-scale” project. Thus, many fans have gone on to assume that both these installments will relate to the AW franchise.

During a Giant Bomb stream, Jeff Grubb explained “They’re planning an Alan Wake sequel. This is something I’ve talked about before… they are working with Epic Games on producing an Alan Wake 2, or at least it’s in the planning stages. So does that turn into anything concrete and real? I’m hopeful. I think so. I don’t imagine it will get derailed.”

In addition to this, he spoke about the feasibility of this project given what Remedy has on its plate. “Remedy is really busy. They’re super, super busy, so we’ll have to wait and see if that turns into anything soon or not. But yeah, Alan Wake Remastered is them taking back Alan Wake and saying, ‘hey, this is one of our key franchises, we want people to remember it’”, Grubb says.

With the release date of October 5th, 2021 set in stone, it won’t be long before fans can enjoy this thrilling story on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. Which game would you like to see next in the Alan Wake franchise? Let us know in the comments down below.
