Remedy Entertainment has recently confirmed that the previously commonly found product placement for Alan Wake Remastered will be replaced by fictional brands. In other words, the game won't feature products from brands like Verizon and Energizer. The company cited expiring brand deals.
The brand deals with Energizer, Verizon, Ford, Lincoln, and many other brands have all expired. Instead, the game will feature fictional brands made with generic in-universe branding. However, songs and TV shows from the original game will make a return. It's unclear if Remedy will make any attempt to bring back or add new product placements.
Speaking of features that won't be found on Alan Wake. It's recently been confirmed that Alan Wake will not have Ray Tracing or HDR support. While the remaster will offer improved visual effects and lighting alongside enhanced character models, and richer environment details, Adding HDR and Ray Tracing support would have been too time-consuming for the team handling the remaster.
