A new survival horror experience from Remedy, coming 2023.


Sam Lake
Creative Director, Remedy Entertainment


Alan Wake was the first Remedy Entertainment game where we were planning on a sequel already when working on the first game. It was a lesson learned from Max Payne, our breakout hit game, where the idea of a sequel never crossed our minds before the game was out. With Max Payne, it all worked out great in the end, even if the first story wasn’t planned with a follow-up in mind. But so, with Alan Wake, we were thinking about a sequel early on.

When we, at the end of the game, left Alan Wake off in the supernatural nightmare dimension of the Dark Place, it felt like a fitting end to our horror story, but also like a cool cliffhanger of things to come. Alan Wake is about the laws of drama, and we knew that for the story to continue, for Alan Wake to survive, it would have to be a hard journey for him. We didn’t know that it was going to be a hard journey for us at Remedy as well. But looking back now, it’s clear that it had to be a hard journey, because if anything, Alan Wake is about the struggle to create a work of art. Fiction becoming reality. And it’s also the reason, for its themes of an artist’s process, that Alan Wake has always meant the world to me.


Images within this article are from CG trailer, not actual gameplay.

For over a decade, after Alan Wake, in between every project we have made, I have eagerly worked on Alan Wake 2 with a small core team, dreaming up different incarnations of the concept. But getting a large game project funded and greenlit is a complex effort that depends on many things, some of which are beyond our control. We never gave up hope. If anything, we grew more determined as years passed. Each version of the concept felt better than the previous one. It is easy to feel happy and excited now that Alan Wake 2 is finally happening based on our latest iteration of the concept, and not the ones that came before that. We’re so happy to be at this point, after so much hard work, sharing our excitement with you.


With Control, our game from 2019, we established the Remedy Connected Universe, where both Control and Alan Wake exist in the same universe. AWE, the second expansion of Control, builds a crossover event between the two games, and hints of things to come. Control was the first Remedy Universe game on PlayStation. And after it, we had the perfect opportunity to release Alan Wake Remastered also on PlayStation this fall. It’s been wonderful to see so many of you visit the small town of Bright Falls for the first time.

I also want to make it clear that playing our previous games is not required in any way to fully enjoy Alan Wake 2, but to those interested it will add to the backstory of it.

We have now announced Alan Wake 2. This is a monumental moment for us at Remedy. For me personally. Leading up to the announcement, our internal codename for the sequel has been Project Big Fish. David Lynch has said: “Ideas are like fish. If you want to catch little fish, you can stay in the shallow water. But if you want to catch the big fish, you’ve got to go deeper.” Alan Wake 2 is our big fish. We are diving deeper than ever, into an ocean of darkness.

Whereas the first Alan Wake had horror elements in it, it was an action game. Alan Wake 2 is Remedy’s first survival horror game. Our take on the genre. Our opportunity to truly connect the gameplay and the story. It is a deep, layered mystery. So, Alan Wake 2 confirmed and coming in 2023 presented by Epic Games Publishing. Thank you, our long-standing fans, this is what you have been waiting for, and welcome to those who are just discovering Alan Wake’s story.

The Face of Alan Wake

Alan Wake 2 seems to still feature Ilkka Villi as the real life face model of Alan Wake.

Bradley Cooper and Jake Gyllenhaal are not playing Alan Wake.

Alan Wake Remastered will feature higher-quality textures but in addition to that will feature new and updated character models as well.

According to in-game screenshots shared by an Amazon product listing earlier today, protagonist Alan Wake will receive a facelift in the upcoming remastered game. His new face model now bares more resemblance to the Finnish actor Ilkka Vili who originally played the titular character and provided all motion-captured sessions and facial expressions. Hence, it is only fitting that Alan Wake Remastered updates the lead face model to the live-action actor in tribute.

Ilkka Villi (born August 4, 1975) is a Finnish actor known for his roles as the physical model for Alan Wake and his evil doppelganger, Mr. Scratch, although in both cases, even during live-action footage, Villi's voice is dubbed over by voice actor Matthew Porretta.

  • Poets of the Fall Music Video (2010) for the song "War" as Alan Wake (actor)
  • Bright Falls (2010) as Alan Wake (actor)
  • Alan Wake (2010) as Alan Wake/Insane Alan/Mr. Scratch/TV Head Alan (actor/model)
  • Alan Wake's American Nightmare (2012) as Alan Wake/Mr. Scratch (actor/model)

Mediocrity incarnate is getting a sequel and a remake. We need a thread for them why?

Will Alan Wake in a survival horror game become a best seller?


Alan Wake Remastered was released on October 5, 2021, for Windows, and consoles.

Remedy said they had no plans on remastering Alan Wake's American Nightmare, believing that Alan Wake and the two DLC episodes formed a "sensible" package

Yeah right like this game will be a survival horror. Actual survival horrors have been abandoned by everyone but indie devs for over 20 years

Holy hell you cucks overrate Max Payne

Remedy haven't made a single worthy game since Max Payne to my knowledge, which itself is definitely good but not peak game industry or TPS

Alan Wake II could be the sexy survival horror game to remedy the companies revenues.

>Alan Wake 1 is Xbox 360 exclusive
>Sales failure as a result because the entire audience was on PC
>Nobody gives a shit years later when it's ported to PC
>Everyone gets it on Humble Bundle for a dollar
>Alan Wake 2 is EGS exclusive
>Sales failure because the entire audience was on Steam
>Nobody gives a shit years later when it's released on a real platform
>Nobody pays for the game at all because Tim already paid for it

Alan Wake 2 needs a wide PC launch on all the platforms digtial storefronts at the same time to sell the maximum day one purchases.


Alan Wake 2 is coming to PlayStation 5, Windows PC (via the Epic Games Store), and Xbox Series X in 2023, and will be published by Epic Games.

If it's not sold on PC on Steam on Day One . . . PC gamers gonna find a free digital version?

The first official teaser trailer for 野狗子: Slitterhead, revealed at The Game Awards 2021.


In what way will Alan Wake Two lean in to the horror aspects? More psychological horror? Body horror?

What is survival horror? A resource management game?

Will the hero be able to stop chainsaws with his shitty jacket once again, then recover under the light of a lightbulb?

Nice! Loved the first game and American Nightmare.
Also liked the story connection between that and Control - very curious how it will all come together. If it does, that is.

Not too sure about the genre as that is not something I usually play, but since they usually have rather unusual takes on any genre, I guess it'll be worth a try.
