Remedy Entertainment revealed in its third quarter business review that Alan Wake Remastered has had a good start and its sales are going well. Alan Wake‘s October outing marked the first time that the franchise appeared on PlayStation platforms – something that has been on Remedy’s wish list for a long time, according to its previously statements.
“In September, we announced that the smaller of the two Epic Games Publishing projects, Alan Wake Remastered, was completed and ready to be launched in October on PC on the Epic Games Store, Xbox, and for the first time in the franchise’s history, PlayStation consoles,” said CEO Tero Virtala. “The launch marks a special moment for us and Alan Wake fans around the world. After the reporting period, we have seen that the game has been received positively by critics and players alike and sales have started well.”
In the same report, Remedy confirmed that its larger of the two Epic Games publishing projects has entered full production.
Remedy’s last quarter was a bit of a departure from its recent financial performance in that it reported a year-on-year decline in revenue and profit, for a change. The developer partly attributed the decline to a decrease in royalties earned from Control. However, Virtala noted that Control continues to generate sales two years after launch.
Control Ultimate Edition was released on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S in February this year, which helped to boost sales. There are currently two Control projects in the works, one of which is a multiplayer spin-off.
