Over two million copies of Alan Wake have been sold across Xbox 360 and PC.
Speaking with CVG, Oskari Hakkinen, Remedy's head of franchise development, said that the series has become a cult hit despite a slow start.
"We've moved over two million copies. That's including PC," he 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."
