Alan Wake Remastered has yet to turn a profit for Epic Games Publishing, with a recent report confirming the studio has yet to recoup its development and marketing costs for the game.
Developer Remedy Entertainment revealed that, as of March 31, 2022, Alan Wake Remastered hasn’t drummed up any royalty revenue for the studio due to its lacklustre commercial performance.
We had no royalty revenue from Alan Wake Remastered during the first quarter as Epic Games Publishing has yet to recoup its development and marketing expenses for the game.
This isn’t obviously great news for Epic Games, particularly as Remedy is currently working on the full sequel, Alan Wake 2, which is being touted as the studio’s first proper survival horror title. Alan Wake has always been something of a cult hit rather than a commercial juggernaut, though, so hopefully that will be reflected in Epic’s commercial expectations.
Alan Wake Remastered is now available for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One, with a Nintendo Switch version arriving later this year. You can read our full review here.
