Alan Wake 2 is a survival horror game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Epic Games.
Unlike its predecessor, it is an out-and-out survival horror experience.
Starting with Alan Wake 2 in 2023, Remedy Entertainment plans to release a new game ever year, on top of "additional free and paid content."
Remedy says the game, which is due out sometime this year, will soon be content-complete, following which the developer will shift focus to polishing the experience.
However, those familiar with the Remedy Connected Universe will find plenty of "connections, pieces of lore, and familiar characters".
"Gameplay, narrative, atmosphere, music – it’s all singing from the same hymn sheet," says game director Kyle Rowley.
"I feel like I never left Alan Wake behind. There was always the full intention to return to him," says creative director Sam Lake.
Remedy CEO Tero Virtala says, "There is still a lot of work to be done, but the game is coming together on all fronts."
Writer and creative director Sam Lake shares a brief update on the writing process of Remedy Entertainment's upcoming survival horror sequel.
No royalty revenue earned from Alan Wake Remastered in Q1 2022 due to Epic Games having yet to "recoup its development and marketing expenses."
Ilkka Villi and Matthew Porretta, who provided the appearance and voice for Alan Wake respectively in the first game, will be returning for the sequel.
Remedy Entertainment will stick with its in-house engine for the upcoming survival horror game, and is promising big things where the visuals are concerned.
Remedy Entertainment's long-awaited sequel will be its first survival horror title. More details are slated to come in Summer 2022.
Alan Wake 2, rumoured to be in development at Remedy Entertainment in partnership with Epic Games, might be announced tomorrow.
Remedy Entertainment's headcount has grown to nearly 300 people, and the developer has provided updates on several upcoming projects.
Remedy has five games in development.
Epic Games reportedly offered the best publishing deal for the sequel.
The agreement entails full development funding, 50/50 revenue split, and more.
Talk about some mixed emotions.
Sam Lake still wants to do a follow up to the beloved thriller.
Will we ever see more of Remedy's horror thriller?
Remedy Entertainment's beloved horror-thriller almost got the sequel it deserved.
Apparently, sequels for both games depend on Microsoft's buy in.
Alan Wake 2 will have to be on Remedy's terms according to Sam Lake.
"The developer has to want to make the game.”
The new project is being worked on for at least nine months.
But Remedy still interested in doing a follow up if they can.
'We said, let's make it something bigger.'
"You need the right funding. You need the right concept," says Sam Lake.
Director is still hopeful it's coming.
Creative director says there's been discussion internally about a possible sequel.
'Someday, when the time is right.'
"I would definitely love to do more Wake."
