Remedy Entertainment has made plenty of promises for its upcoming survival horror sequel Alan Wake 2, calling it the studio’s best-looking game to date, not to mention its most ambitious project ever. Given that, one would assume that the developer will require plenty of time to put the whole thing together- but it seems like it’s making quick progress behind the scenes.
In Remedy Entertainment’s recently published financial report for 2022, CEO Tero Virtala revealed that Alan Wake 2 is now playable from start to finish. Virtala says the game will soon “have all content in place”, following which the developer will shift focus to polishing it up on the road to launch.
Interestingly, it also looks like Alan Wake Remastered has enjoyed tepid sales. The remaster hasn’t resulted in any royalties from sales for Remedy Entertainment so far- though the studio expects sales to increase as Alan Wake 2 gets closer to launch.
“Alan Wake 2 is in full production,” Virtala wrote. “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. Alan Wake Remastered has not yet generated royalties. However, we expect the sales to increase as the release of Alan Wake 2 becomes imminent and fans and new players want to experience the original story on new generation consoles.”
Remedy Entertainment has previously reiterated that the game will be out sometime this year, despite some being concerned about a potential delay, and the pace of its development definitely does seem to suggest that.
Whenever it launches, Alan Wake 2 will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
