The FAQ also discusses Remedy's reasons for remastering instead of redoing Alan Wake, which, in addition to the major visual update, will be left untouched. “The plan has always been more to introduce Alan Wake to new audiences than to redo the game,” he says. "We are still very happy with the game a decade later."

“From the beginning, we decided that this is a remaster and not a remake. While there were some frustrations with the gameplay of the original game (things like Alan often get breathless while running), we feel they're part of the original Alan Wake experience and we haven't changed them.”
