Epic Games and developer Remedy Entertainment announced Alan Wake II today for Xbox Series, PS5, and PC.
Alan Wake II will be available sometime in 2023 with a gameplay reveal coming in summer 2022. According to Sam Lake, director of Alan Wake II, the game will be survival-horror, a shift from a psychological thriller that was introduced in the first Alan Wake game.
“It’s no secret that we have passionately pursued an opportunity to return to Alan Wake’s story for years. All that hard work has brought us here. The stars have aligned. It’s happening now, and we know the community is as passionate as we are about seeing Alan Wake’s next chapter unfold,” said Sam Lake, the Creative Director of Remedy. “Alan Wake 2 is our first ever survival horror game, a genre that lets us dive deeper than ever before into building an intense atmosphere and a twisted, layered, psychological story.”
“Remedy continues to push the medium forward with every title they create,” said Hector Sanchez, Head of Epic Games Publishing. “Alan Wake 2 continues the tradition of a highly atmospheric, emotionally evocative story intertwined with compelling gameplay while simultaneously reaching new highs only they could achieve. We couldn’t be more honored to help bring Sam and the team’s vision to light.”
