You might remember that over a year ago, rumors of Alan Wake Remastered surfaced. Not only was a remaster rumored, but that specific leak was tied to a Switch release. That’s why we were surprised to see the project announced, but a Switch version was never mentioned.
Now we know those early leaks were spot-on. Remedy Entertainment today announced that Alan Wake Remastered is indeed coming to Switch, and it’s set to launch sometime in Fall of 2022. Also, Remedy went out of their way to confirm that this release runs natively on the Switch.
Remedy shared this news as part of an overall update on the Alan Wake franchise. This update also provided some fresh info on the Alan Wake TV show adaptation. Remedy has revealed that AMC Networks (The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad) has bought the rights to the Alan Wake TV series, so the project is indeed moving along. No release date for the show yet, but hopefully we’ll get a bit more insight in the near future.

In this award-winning cinematic action-thriller, troubled author Alan Wake embarks on a desperate search for his missing wife, Alice. Following her mysterious disappearance from the Pacific Northwest town of Bright Falls, he discovers pages of a horror story he has supposedly written, but he has no memory of.
Wake is soon forced to question his sanity, as page by page, the story comes true before his eyes: a hostile presence of supernatural darkness is taking over everyone it finds, turning them against him. He has no choice but to confront the forces of darkness armed only with his flashlight, a handgun and what remains of his shredded mind. His nightmarish journey to find answers to the mind-bending mystery he faces will lead him into the terrifying depths of the night.
Alan Wake Remastered offers the complete experience, with the main game and its two story expansions - The Signal and The Writer - in stunning new visuals. The tense, episodic story is packed with unexpected twists, heart-stopping cliff hangers, and intense bursts of combat where it takes more than bullets to banish the darkness. The game’s cutscenes, quirky cast of characters, and the majestic Pacific Northwest vistas have been enhanced for an experience that delivers as much on its visual impact as its unnerving atmosphere.
