Alan Wake 2 isn’t just going to take the series’ story forward- as the next instalment in the shared universe that includes both Control and Alan Wake, called the Remedy Connected Universe, the upcoming survival horror sequel is also going to further expand that universe, and even set the stage for Control 2. That, of course, means we can expect to see narrative elements that will tie in directly with Remedy Entertainment’s acclaimed 2019 title- one of which has been formally unveiled.
Remedy Entertainment has revealed a new character that will have a role to play in Alan Wake 2. Named Kiran Estevez and played by Janina Gavankar (known for Star Wars Battlefront 2, Forspoken), she is an agent of the Federal Bureau of Control, an agency that Control fans will be very familiar with.
According to Remedy, during the events of Alan Wake 2, the FBC’s headquarters is currently shut down “due to an internal emergency” – in all likeliness a reference to the events of Control and their fallout – as a result of which, Agent Estevez has been “left with little support or assistance”.
At the same time, however, that means she’s also calling her own shots now, and as she and her team continue to try and “contain every paranatural occurrence”, she will be driven to “do the right thing, and protect those that need it most.”
Alan Wake 2 is due out on October 27 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. Remedy has confirmed that though it will feature a Performance Mode on PS5 and Xbox Series X, that won’t be the case on Xbox Series S.
What is a shady government organisation like the Federal Bureau of Control looking for in Bright Falls, and what's got them so interested in Cauldron Lake? @janina is FBC Agent Kiran Estevez in Alan Wake 2. #AlanWake pic.twitter.com/CSREL1A4HQ
