“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,” the announcement read. “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.”

Previously, Remedy owned the Alan Wake IP and Microsoft owned the publishing rights. Now, with the publishing rights in tow, it’s completely up to Remedy to decide to make a sequel for the acclaimed 2010 horror game.

Remedy had previously worked on a sequel but according to a Remedy spokesperson that game’s development “didn’t pan out”.
