'Alan Wake' TV Adaptation Rights Acquired By AMC

Alan Wake 2 is a survival horror game with an intense atmosphere and a twisted, layered, psychological story.

Alan Wake 2 will be a truly next-generation experience.  Not only that, but Alan Wake 2 also turns up the level of dread as our very first dive into the survival horror genre, so expect a chilling experience with familiar psychological horror elements.

Whereas the first Alan Wake had horror elements in it, it was an action game. Alan Wake 2 is Remedy’s first survival horror game. Their take on the genre and an opportunity to truly connect the gameplay and the story, making it a deep, layered mystery.

With Control, released in 2019, Remedy established its Connected Universe, where both Control and Alan Wake exist in the same universe. AWE, the second expansion of Control, builds a crossover event between the two games, and hints of things to come. Playing Remedy's games is not required in any way to fully enjoy Alan Wake 2, but to those interested it will add to the backstory of it.

Back in late 2018, Remedy announced that an Alan Wake TV show was in the works. Today they’ve announced that it is… still in the works, but with a new partner.

Remedy are very happy to reveal that AMC Networks (The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad) has bought the rights to the Alan Wake TV series. There’s still a long way to go for the series to become a reality, but we are excited, to say the least, about this latest development.

Alan Wake 2 is coming to PC (Epic Games Store), PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in 2023.
