The highly awaited sequel is drawing closer to release.

Story Highlights

  • Remedy Entertainment CEO Tero Virtala has confirmed that Alan Wake 2 is playable from start to finish, as noted in the new financial statement.
  • The game is not yet complete; all the content has to fall in place before it enters the polishing stage.
  • The studio also elaborated on its other projects in the new financial statement, discussing the high aspirations around Control 2 and other entries.
  • It was confirmed in the past that Alan Wake 2 is slated for a 2023 release, but no official release date has been announced.

Alan Wake 2 has reportedly been developed to the point that it is entirely playable from start to finish. All the planned additions will soon be integrated into the game. Remedy Entertainment CEO Tero Virtala recently confirmed the glad tidings in a new financial statement, which discussed the state of the awaited sequel.

The title is near the finishing stage but far from complete. However, Alan Wake 2 can be relished from the start to the end without any major issues hindering the experience. According to the CEO, the new entry will soon enter the polishing stage, which is usually one of the last phases of a game’s development cycle prior to its release.

Alan Wake 2 is in full production. The game will soon have all content in place, and it is playable from start to finish. We will then move onto polishing the experience. Alan Wake is a unique brand that holds high value for the company today,” said Remedy Entertainment CEO Tero Virtala.

The developer also comments on the Alan Wake Remastered, noting how it has yet not generated any royalties. Regardless, Remedy Entertainment CEO expects that to change soon as the arrival of Alan Wake 2 draws nigh.

As per the CEO, the anticipation of Alan Wake 2’s release may incite newer and older audiences to relive the original Alan Wake experience through the modern lens of next-gen consoles.

In the past, Remedy Entertainment revealed many of its ongoing projects, despite being in concept stages. The studio is crafting multiple control sequels, Max Payne 1 & 2 remastered in collaboration with Rockstar Games, and more. The latest financial statement brings us updates regarding all of its impending new projects.

Control 2 expands the story and the world from the original Control. We now have detailed concepts on the game vision and all creative areas including the gameplay, narrative and art. We are pleased with the work the team has done and as of January 2023, the game has progressed into the proof-of-concept stage,” notes Remedy Entertainment CEO.

The other project, Codename Condor, is still in the proof-of-concept stage; it is a service-based entry, which is an entirely new experience for Remedy Entertainment. “We are building the right team and production model for the game and are patiently progressing with the development,” stated CEO Tero Virtala.

The Codename Vanguard is also in the proof-of-concept stage, and that phase was reportedly elongated to pursue it in 2023 with a more expansive development team.

The Vanguard team has made progress and continues to work on core gameplay and meta game development as well as proving the application of Remedy-style narrative and world building. The development team has been strengthened by select key hires,” noted Remedy Entertainment CEO.

Likewise, Max Payne 1 & 2’s development is also progressing smoothly as it grows in the concept stage. The CEO is excited to bring the nostalgic character back to the spotlight for a new generation of fans.

It was reported in September 2022 that Alan Wake 2 had entered full production, and the fans have been very intrigued by the progress of the sequel after a decade’s worth of anticipation. Remedy Entertainment has big hopes with Alan Wake 2’s release, as the CEO went as far as calling it Remedy Entertainment’s biggest title yet.

Alan Wake 2’s release was previously hinted to anchor this year, but no official release date has been revealed yet. It is slated to arrive for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Series S, and PC (through the Epic Games Store).
