Remedy has revealed in its latest financial report that Alan Wake Remastered has recouped its development and marketing costs some two years after its release. The milestone just happens to coincide with the launch of Alan Wake 2, which came out last Friday.
According to the Finnish studio, Alan Wake Remastered broke even during the third quarter of the current financial year. You can read the full quote below:
Looking specifically at the third quarter of 2023, revenue was at a similar level as it was in the comparison period. Development fees were somewhat lower than a year ago, which was mainly due to lower development fees from Alan Wake 2 as the project was nearing its launch. Royalties grew year-on-year driven by Alan Wake Remastered, which recouped its development and marketing investments during the third quarter.
Alan Wake Remastered launched for PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One on October 5, 2021, and you can read our full review here.
