Alan Wake Remastered has sold less than Remedy hoped

Remedy Entertainment has spent most of its existence developing unique yet rather niche games, with the studio’s standout titles being Max Payne, Control and Alan Wake. Speaking of Alan Wake, the game was remastered for modern systems around this time last year – but unfortunately, it seems to have not sold as well as Remedy may have hoped.

As part of the company’s recent investor report, Remedy Entertainment discussed the studio’s current fiscal position, saying “In the third quarter of 2022, revenue grew by 7% to EUR 7.9 million. Development fees made up 95% and royalties 5% of the revenue. Key positive contributors were the development fees from Alan Wake 2 and Max Payne 1&2 Remake.”

Unfortunately, when discussing game royalties, Remedy revealed that “development fees from Codename Condor and Alan Wake Remastered and game royalties from Control decreased from the comparison period. Alan Wake Remastered and Crossfire did not generate royalties.”

While it is not surprising to see that Crossfire did not set the world on fire, the revelation that Alan Wake Remastered has made Remedy no royalties is unfortunate, especially as the game is one of Remedy’s most iconic.

The one potential silver lining comes in the form of a Nintendo Switch version of Alan Wake Remastered which only just dropped onto the console in late October. Hopefully the Switch release boosts the sales of Alan Wake Remastered over the coming months.
