Remedy Entertainment has announced that Alan Wake 2 is moving towards the final stage of full production and is on track for release in 2023. Despite the challenges of post-pandemic game development, the game’s development has progressed steadily, and Remedy Entertainment is confident in its progress. In early 2023, Remedy confirmed that the game was completely playable from beginning to end.
The latest update suggests that substantial progress has been made since then, and the company has reiterated the game’s planned 2023 release multiple times in the latest report. The game’s development is progressing smoothly, and developers are confident that they will meet the planned release date.
The studio is also working on other projects alongside Alan Wake 2. Control 2’s development is excelling, with developers focussing on world-building and gameplay mechanics. Codename Condor, a co-op multiplayer game set in the same world as Control, is reportedly in the proof-of-concept stage, and key designs for gameplay have been locked down. Codename Vanguard, a free-to-play co-op game, and Max Payne 1&2 Remake, a modern reimagining of the first two Max Payne tales, are also in the proof-of-concept stage.
The company has made it clear that Alan Wake 2 is its main priority over the next year as it works towards release. The project is fully staffed, and the team is scaling down gradually as they progress towards the launch. Remedy is confident that Alan Wake 2 will be a game that they will all be proud of, and most importantly, it will be a game that players will love to play.
While the company hasn’t shared much about the game publicly, the latest update is welcome news for fans who have been eagerly waiting for the game’s release. Remedy Entertainment has a reputation for developing high-quality games, and fans of the first Alan Wake game can look forward to playing the sequel soon. We can expect to hear more about the game’s development in the coming months.
