Alan Wake surpasses 2m sales

Remedy has announced Alan Wake has gone past the 2m units sold milestone.

The developer called the game a ‘cult classic’ in their updated sales figure reveal to CVG, adding that the franchise still has a future.

"We’ve moved over two million copies–that’s including PC," head of franchise development Oskari Hakkinen said.

"So after a slow start it’s turning into something really positive. It’s definitely had legs. I think narrative experiences just have a tendency for that. Alan Wake’s like a cult classic if you like. People who have played and enjoyed the story feel the urge to tell their friends and other gamers out there that they need to try this experience, they need to play it."

Remedy is currently working on an unannounced next generation title that is presumed to be unassociated with the series, but it’s clear Hakkinen and the team have plans to come back to it at some point.

Alan Wake is definitely very close to our hearts. It’s our IP–we own it. It’s not something that we’re going to forget very easily."
