‘Alan Wake’ Has Sold a Barcelona’s Worth of Copies

The Alan Wake franchise has sold over 4.5 million copies on the PC and Xbox 360, says Remedy CEO Matias Myllyrinne, otherwise known as That Guy With the Really Cool Name. That’s enough copies to fill all of Cauldron Lake! Okay, that’s definitely not true, but it is comparable to the population of Barcelona (thanks, Google!)

It’s also an impressive accomplishment for a franchise that I still hear get referred to as a “failure”. It’s not a failure, you’re a failure, and I have it on good authority your parents don’t even love you.

A story about Alan Wake wouldn’t be a story about Alan Wake without at least three mentions of a sequel, so here, here, here you go.

    This is one of my favorite games of all time. I loved everything to do with it, it was just stupendous. And you’re right, that’s not enough copies to fill Cauldron Lake. It’s not a lake, it’s an ocean.


    I actually recently did a few Alan Wake-themed drawings. if anyone would like to see them, please visit my deviantART page. Thanks, guys!
