Alan Wake 2 is coming to light up the night in 2023

Alan Wake 2

Remedy is going for full-on survival horror

Remedy’s ill-fated writer is returning for another terror-filled night. Alan Wake 2 is on its way, currently targeting a 2023 launch.

Announced during The Game Awards 2021, Remedy Entertainment will be continuing the story of the first Alan Wake. Which, hey, works out pretty well considering that remastered version came out earlier this year.

Here’s the teaser shown during the Game Awards:

In a chat on-air after the reveal, Remedy’s Sam Lake said this will be the studio’s “first survival horror” game. While the previous game definitely had horror elements, sounds like things are going to get even more dicey for our beloved writer in Alan Wake 2.

Considering the Alan Wake universe is also tied into Remedy’s Control universe, it’ll be interesting to see where things go for a new entry. Could it cross over onto itself, the way that Ubisoft’s universes link together? I know I’d be down for a cameo from Control protagonist Jesse Faden, though that might be a bit much. But if you needed another reason to finally get around to playing the first Alan Wake, here it is.

Alan Wake 2 will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Epic Games Store in 2023.
