Alan Way Climaster may have been found in the Epic Games Store

Thanks to Position Reddit gives you a glimpse of the new Remedy project you’re working on. As information is regularly retrieved from the Epic Games Store, new games and products hidden in the store’s file system may be discovered.Today we found a strange folder string inside Remedy Entertainment files Read: {dirUser} / Remedy / AlanWakeRemastered /. Is an upgraded version of Alan Wake imminent?

At the time of writing this story, the folder was renamed to “Heron” and the directory was generically named “Heron Staging”. Other Remedy files in the EpicGameStore also use the name “Heron”. In 2019, at least the folder itself has been around for a long time. Staging, on the other hand, is usually the place to group or assemble objects in preparation for a project. The folder here was formerly named “AlanWake Remastered”. You can infer that this is the store page with the proper codename for the remaster that may be released by Remedy or Epic.

The potential for Alan Wake remastering will affect other upcoming Remedy games. Last year, Epic Games announced that it has partnered with Remedy Entertainment to publish games from Finnish developers. The deal is said to be two games in the same series, one with a more ambitious Triple A title and the other with a smaller scale. If this remaster is actually published by Epic Games and it is assumed that the two published games are part of one franchise, you may end up with a sequel to Alan Wake. This is not yet official, but there is gradual increasing evidence of that particular direction.

Alan Wake hasn’t been completely dormant since the original game released on the Xbox 360 in 2010. Received a stand-alone mini spin-off called American Nightmare from Alan Wake in 2012, and recently, Control’s AWE expansion last August investigated anomalies in the power of Lake Coldron from the original Alan Wake. The original can also be played on PC, especially through the Epic Games Store, among other places.
