Remedy Entertainment has provided a big development update on its upcoming survival horror game, Alan Wake 2. According to the studio, it’s now fully playable from start to finish and is making good progress. The game will enter its polishing stages soon ahead of its release sometime in 2023.
Speaking to shareholders via a recent earnings call, Remedy Entertainment CEO Tero Virtala confirmed that Alan Wake 2 was in a state where it’s fully playable from beginning to end. The game will apparently have all of its content in place soon before it enters the polishing stages. The anticipated sequel to 2010’s Alan Wake was in development for several years now but only entered full production back in May 2022.

Virtala stated during the earnings call:
“Alan Wake 2 is in full production. The game will soon have all content in place, and it is playable from start to finish. We will then move on to polishing the experience. Alan Wake is a unique brand that holds high value for the company today.”
Alan Wake 2 was officially revealed back in December 2021. The long-awaited sequel to Remedy’s acclaimed psychological horror game will release in 2023, though no concrete release date has been set yet. It’s possible that it may arrive later in the year given the current state of the game.
Remedy also provided a description of the game, stating that it will undergo a shift from psychological horror to survival horror:
“After 11 long years, the writer’s return is a reality and the dangers lurking in the dark are even more sinister than the Taken roaming Bright Falls. Not only that, but Alan Wake 2 also turns up the level of dread as our very first dive into the survival horror genre, so expect a chilling experience with familiar psychological horror elements.”
Alan Wake 2 is currently in development for PS5, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
