Alan Wake Remastered is getting a Nintendo Switch version. It is currently only available on Xbox, PlayStation and PC through platforms such as Epic Games. In addition, it was announced that a television series based on the game was already in development.
During a Remedy Entertainment special keynote, creative director Sam Lake announced that a port of the game would be coming to the Nintendo hybrid console, making it available on almost all platforms.
Alan Wake first hit the market in 2010 and received a remaster in October 2021 , returning for the latest generation of consoles. At the time, the game was highly acclaimed by critics and named by many as the best horror game ever.
As for the Switch release, Alan Wake’s 12th Anniversary video reveals that the game could arrive in late 2022 and that it won’t have a physical version, only digital via Nintendo eShop.

AMC bought the rights to Alan Wake. And we’re collaborating to make this TV show a reality.”
Last December, Remedy Entertainment announced that Alan Wake would have a sequel .
“This is a big moment for us at Remedy. For me personally. In preparation for the announcement, our internal codename for the sequel was Project Big Fish,” Lake wrote.
Alan Wake 2, unlike the first part, will be a survival horror game. Estimated release date is 2023.
