Microsoft has reverted the publishing rights of the Alan Wake brand back to its original developer Remedy Entertainment. The studio also received a one-time 2.5 million euro royalty payout.
The reacquisition of the Alan Wake publishing rights means the studio is now free to develop and publish new Alan Wake games. Earlier this year the studio already reacquired the intellectual property rights of the franchise.
In addition to the re-acquisition, the studio also received a one-time 2.5 million euro royalty payout for previously published games such as Quantum Break and Control.
