Alan Wake Breaks 2 Million Sales

Remedy’s psychological action thriller Alan Wake has managed to sell over 2 million copies on both Xbox and PC.  The game, which debuted on Xbox in May of 2010, has taken just under 3 years to complete this task, but Remedy remains hopeful about the future of the franchise.  Being a new IP from a small studio, it’s entirely understandable that sales for Alan Wake weren’t on par with bigger budget  games from the powerhouse developers, but it’s proven to be financially and critically successful.

News of this sales milestone comes just in time for Microsoft’s next Xbox reveal in just under a month.  While Remedy owns the Alan Wake IP, Microsoft is the series publisher and Remedy has stated in the past that the software giant is in charge of the franchise’s future.  Remedy has also been teasing a reveal of their latest project for some time now, so I wouldn’t be surprised at all if we see an Alan Wake: Season 2 reveal at Microsoft’s next-gen Xbox reveal or E3.
