Alan Wake 2 was first announced during The Game Awards in 2021 with a reveal trailer that showed off various locations in the game including New York City. The game’s creative director, Sam Lake, had stated that the game would be a “survival horror” experience, which makes sense given the events that take place in the original. While we still don’t have a firm update about the game, we have learned that the game has crossed a very important milestone.

According to a recent statement made by the CEO of Remedy, Tero Virtala, the development of Alan Wake 2 has reached a stage where the game can be played from start to finish. Virtala went on to explain that the game is in full production, and the company is working on polishing the experience to ensure that it is the best game in the genre that Remedy has ever produced.

Virtala also mentioned that the company was disappointed with the sales of Alan Wake Remastered, which was released in October 2021, but they are hoping that the imminent release of Alan Wake 2 will boost sales and generate more royalties for the studio.

In a recent update in May 2022, Lake stated that the development was going well and that the team was focused on creating the best survival horror game from Remedy. He went on to explain that the studio decided not to show any of the game last summer to keep the team’s focus on creating a great game experience and that fans will have to wait a bit longer for a demo and trailer.

The long-awaited Alan Wake sequel is set to release in 2023, and fans of the franchise are eagerly anticipating its arrival. With the game now being fully playable from start to finish, it seems that the wait for Alan Wake 2 is nearly over.
