Alan Wake 2 official trailer screenshot without logo

[Update #2]: Alan Wake 2's launch has been pushed back until October 27th due to overcrowding.

[Update]: Despite already working on numerous new games, Remedy has now announced a brand new co-operative PvE shooter - Project Vanguard.

If after a decade of waiting you were starting to lose hope that Remedy would ever announce Alan Wake 2, I'm happy to say that I bring some good news! Not only has Remedy announced that they are working on Alan Wake 2 during the recent The Game Awards, but also that they are pouring absolutely everything they have into it!

While the details are still few and far between, you can expect an even greater focus on atmosphere and physiological horror elements. Here's a brief teaser trailer showing off what they mean:

Similarly, you can expect to see Alan Wake 2 land onto PC (via the Epic Games Store), PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S|X in 2023, though no exact release date has been given just yet. Unfortunately, what you won't be seeing is more gameplay details, at least not until summer of 2022 as Remedy is now going "dark" in order to fully focus on making Alan Wake 2 live up to over a decade of expectations.

Once the big reveal goes live I'll make sure to let you know. For now, however, you can read a little bit more about Remedy's plans for Alan Wake 2 over at the official website.
