Alan Wake Remastered is on its way later this year and it looks like a full-on sequel will be following it. This is according to reporter Jeff Grubb, who says Epic Games has agreed to greenlight a sequel.
“They’re planning an Alan Wake sequel. They are working with Epic Games on producing an Alan Wake 2, or at least it’s in the planning stages. So does that turn into anything concrete and real? I’m hopeful. I think so. I don’t imagine it will get derailed,” Grubb remarked on Giant Bomb’s Grubbsnax show (reported by VGC).
Remedy’s Sam Lake said back in 2018 that making Alan Wake 2 would be a “dream.” At that time, Lake said the Finnish studio was exploring possibilities for more Alan Wake titles.
Last year, Remedy signed a publishing deal with Epic games for two multiplatform games. One is Remedy’s “most ambitious” game yet, described as a “AAA” title that was in the pre-production stage in March 2020. The second is a “new, smaller-scale project” that is set within the same series. This could easily be Alan Wake 2 and Alan Wake Remastered. Or other unknown projects.
In May of this year, Remedy confirmed that it had six games in production. This includes the possible Alan Wake 2, Alan Wake Remastered, the single-player modes for Crossfire X and Crossfire HD, a free-to-play game called Vanguard, a one “new, exciting early-phase project.”
The original Alan Wake was released for Xbox 360 and PC back in 2010. Remedy acquired the rights to the series from Microsoft in 2019.
