The original Alan Wake was released in 2010. Although the game generally got good reviews, I could never get into it much. Remedy, the makers of Alan Wake, also make Control, which I much preferred. The game authors have indicated that Alan Wake is in the same universe as Control and there is even an expansion for Control that included Alan Wake.

Remedy is getting ready for the coming release of a sequel to Alan Wake. Judging from the video for the next-generation console graphics it appears to be highly polished. I may just have to come back to this title.
