The action-adventure video game was first released in 2010 on PC and Xbox 360 after it was published on the platforms by Microsoft, but earlier this week, it was confirmed that developers at Remedy now solely own the publishing rights to the title.

And the company has also revealed the acquisition of the game's publishing rights means they may bring 'Alan Wake' and its spinoff 'American Nightmare' to other platforms, which they weren't able to when Microsoft - who own Xbox as well as the Microsoft operating software used on PCs - published the games.

Remedy told GameSpot.com: "The only thing we want to clarify, now that Remedy owns the publishing rights, is that we could bring Alan Wake to different platforms if we so choose. We have nothing to announce for now."

The developer has not addressed the chances of a new title, despite having repeated stated its desire to make 'Alan Wake 2' in the past.

In 2014, Remedy said it "worked hard" to make 'Alan Wake 2' happen, but acknowledged that it could not find the right partners or funding to make it a reality, and didn't want to release a "less ambitious" game.

And in 2016, creative director Sam Lake said the studio was "discussing the possibility" of a sequel, but insisted no decisions had been made.

He said at the time: "Among other things, we are discussing the possibility of an Alan Wake sequel with multiple partners, but nothing has been decided."
