It seems that Remedy will return to Alan Wake in the next big project.
Over a year ago remedy Announced the signing of a distribution agreement with Epic Games to produce two games for PC and consoles.
According to Jeff Grubb of VentureBeat, one of them is Alan Wick 2. Grubb revealed this on his Twitch show and explained that Remedy has been looking for publishers to help raise Alan Wake 2’s financing, and Epic provided the best deal. The reporter did not disclose any other details about the game, but that was what Remedy wanted to make.
When the deal was announced in 2020, Remedy stated that another project will be carried out in the same field, but the scale will be smaller. It is said that Alan Wake 2 was in the pre-production stage at the time.
Epic also signed the next project of Gen Design and Playdead as part of the same announcement, with the goal of building exclusive games for its platform, rather than just relying on buying timed exclusive rights as in the past.
It is not surprising that Remedy will return to Alan Wake, as the developers have been trying to connect their different games in the same universe. Indeed, creative director Sam Lake said last summer that the studio’s new project takes place in the Control and Alan Wake universe.
The remedy has turned into a rather busy studio. The Finnish developer is currently working on a single player game for Crossfire X and other mysterious multiplayer projects.
