Alan Wake 2 RUMOURS: Development could be underway at Remedy
If you haven’t read anything we’ve written about Remedy Entertainment’s universe of games, we love them. They’re f*cking incredible. There are new rumours that Alan Wake 2 could be on the way from Remedy Entertainment and after his appearance in Control’s AWE expansion… Yes. Just… Yes.
Here’s everything we know from all the news today.
Is Alan Wake 2 one of the new Remedy games?
Remedy Entertainment held their Q1 2021 Business Review earlier today and there’s been talk that they are developing a whopping six titles.
CrossfireX and Crossfire HD are reportedly getting campaigns from Remedy Entertainment as it gears up for a larger western launch on consoles.

There’s also “Project Vanguard”, which is going to be a free-to-play co-operative title from Remedy Entertainment. We don’t know a whole lot about this just yet, but… ” [Remedy Entertainment] have now defined many of the core elements of the game. Development progresses at a good pace, internal playtesting continues, and we are starting the next phase of closed external gameplay testing.”
Then, there’s reportedly two games in development with Epic Games and another one being worked on independently.

A lot going on, right? Well… It turns out one of those might be Alan Wake 2.
Jeff Grubb, a notable industry insider, has stated that he believes Alan Wake 2 is one of the two titles being developed with Epic Games. You can see a transcript from what he said on Twitch below. The following quote can be found between 11:00 and 12:00 on the 43-minute video.
“I’ve heard that Remedy will be making Alan Wake 2 with Epic [Games]. It should be a follow up to the series that fans want. There was a bidding war and Epic had the best publishing deal and it seems like Alan Wake 2 is coming.“
It sounds like Alan Wake 2 has been in the works for a while but Remedy Entertainment were just waiting for the right time to start. Now, with six titles in developement, it looks like they’re thriving.
Following the growing success of Control’s Ultimate Edition release on next-gen consoles and the growing “series recognition”, a sequel to Alan Wake seems like a very good way to continually develop the exciting universe being created.
