Its official, Remedy Entertainment has announced a direct “Alan Wake” sequel which will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC in 2023.
The game will be more of a survival horror title than the action-horror title both its predecessor and same universe-set “Control” was. Wake himself has undergone a redesign to look more like Jake Gyllenhaal and Bradley Cooper’s love child on a bad day. Remedy’s Sam Lake says:
“This is going to be Remedy’s first-ever survival horror game, our take on the genre. The first game had horror elements to it but it was an action game, and we feel that this is the perfect genre to bring together the story and gameplay closer than ever before, because the story – horror story – is at the very heart of this and it’s a psychological, layered, deep mystery to dive into.”
Remedy will reveal more about the game in the Summer of next year ahead of its 2023 release.
