Remedy’s financial results provide some insights into the progress of Alan Wake 2, its Control spin-offs, and more.
In its latest financial results (dated May 13, 2022) Remedy made announcements regarding the company’s finances.
(It’s a bit dry, but if you want to read all that, you can find it in the original report.)
But far more interesting, from our point of view, were the updates on Remedy’s upcoming games, including multiple projects in the Alan Wake/Control shared universe.
Those updates are as follows:
Alan Wake 2
“Alan Wake 2 is in the full production stage. A lot of work remains, but the game is starting to take a more complete form in many areas. As communicated earlier, Alan Wake 2 will be released in 2023.”
“Codename Vanguard, a free-to-play co-operative game to be co-published with Tencent, has made good progress since the previous quarter. The project is in the proof-of-concept stage. We have continued to strengthen the team. Vanguard and our other projects have benefitted from our operations in Sweden.”
Codename Condor and Codename Heron
“Codename Condor, a spin-off game of Control, continues in the proof-of-concept stage. Codename Heron, a bigger Control game, is in the concept stage and its prototyping continues. Additionally, together with the Northlight-technology team, the focus has been on developing the required technology and tools that will serve a number of Remedy games in the future.”
There was also mention of the recently-announced remakes of Max Payne and Max Payne 2, but outside of some platitudes (“The public reception to this announcement was overwhelmingly positive”) there’s precious little concrete to go on.
So it sounds like Alan Wake 2 will be with us next year, but everything else in the Remedy stable might be a way off yet.
