Remedy now owns the publishing rights to Alan Wake

Control developer Remedy Entertainment just earned its royalties for previously published games, including Alan Wake.

The Finnish company earned 2.5 million Euros in royalties, as posted on Global Newswire today. Remedy plans to invest this cash into developing new games.

Remedy is currently working on mind-bending action game Control, as well as the story mode for Crossfire X. The company plans to keep making single-player games in the future.

In an interview with VG247 earlier this year, Remedy said it was working on Alan Wake 2 but things didn’t pan out. The publishing rights for Alan Wake have now reverted to Remedy, so Alan Wake 2 is now a real possibility once again. At that time, Remedy said it owned the IP rights, but “it’s never quite as simple as that” – perhaps it now is.

“For its first half-year period of 2019, Remedy Entertainment Plc records approximately 2.5 million euros of royalties from previously released games as one-time income,” reads the announcement. “The royalties are paid to Remedy during the second half-year period of 2019. In relation to this, the publishing rights of Alan Wake games are reverted to Remedy.”
