Alan Wake 2 Rumored To Have “Moved Into Full Production”
A recent article on pcgamesn.com reported that according to Remedy’s latest financial report, the developer is going full steam ahead with its latest triple-A title, which is rumored to be the long-gestating Alan Wake 2.
Per the report:
Remedy’s AAA game project with Epic Games has moved into full production, and a second, smaller-scale game remains in full production mode. Vanguard, our free-to-play co-op game project, is still progressing at a good pace, with selected internal and external closed gameplay tests.
Twitter user Nibel also said that according to Game Mess Show mastermind Jeff Grubb, Remedy’s project that they are doing together with Epic Games is Alan Wake 2.

This comes as good news for those anxiously awaiting the next chapter in the fan-favorite series, especially after heavy hints were dropped in the Control AWE DLC directly linking the universes of the two games. Remedy Entertainment’s deal with Epic Games is to publish two new multi-platform games. The games are part of Epic Games’ new, developer-first publishing effort, giving full creative freedom and IP ownership to development partners. Supposedly, Alan Wake 2 will likely be an Epic Games Store exclusive.
The original Alan Wake celebrated its 10-anniversary last year and apparently everyone’s favorite tortured writer has been stuck down in the darkness for that long, too. Hopefully, we’ll get some concrete announcements soon regarding when to expect his return and on which platforms.
