Alan Wake fans have been waiting over a decade for a sequel and the wait is finally over. Epic Games Publishing and developer Remedy Entertainment have announced Alan Wake II for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and PC.
The game is still a little ways away as it won’t launch until 2023 but at least it’s real. The sequel will also lean more into the horror elements as Remedy has confirmed it will be a full blown survival horror game, a first for the studio. Here is what Creative Direction Sam Lake had to say:
“It’s no secret that we have passionately pursued an opportunity to return to Alan Wake‘s story for years. All that hard work has brought us here. The stars have aligned. It’s happening now, and we know the community is as passionate as we are about seeing Alan Wake‘s next chapter unfold. Alan Wake II is our first ever survival horror game, a genre that lets us dive deeper than ever before into building an intense atmosphere and a twisted, layered, psychological story.”
