The new survival-horror installment Alan Wake 2, set in the Remedy Connected Universe, will be released in 2023. Officially, Alan Wake 2 is coming. The titular writer will return for a brand-new journey that delves into a different genre in the next sequel, which is scheduled to release in 2023 on PC and new-gen consoles. We received us first peek at Alan Wake 2 at the 2021 Game Awards, which is slated to be a full-fledged survival horror game. Creative director Sam Lake later disclosed that Remedy had been experimenting with ideas for the sequel for nearly ten years. The gloomy, soggy announcement trailer hinted at Wake’s return.
There are still a huge number of unanswered questions regarding the game, and there will undoubtedly be some surprises in store. We eagerly await learning more when it finally arrives in 2023. Below, you can find all we currently know about Alan Wake 2, including a closer look at its trailer, concept art, and more.
Date of Release for Alan Wake 2 2023
The release of Alan Wake 2 is scheduled for 2023, according to the game’s creator, Remedy Entertainment. A more precise launch date has not yet been confirmed by the developer, but he or she has pledged to provide regular updates on progress in the upcoming months. Remedy won’t be in a hurry to deliver the long-awaited Alan Wake sequel given that the first Alan Wake game came out in 2010.
Systems for Alan Wake 2 2023
So far, the PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC have been confirmed as Alan Wake 2 platforms. Due to Epic Games publishing the upcoming survival horror game, Remedy has additionally revealed that Alan Wake 2 will be made available on PC via the Epic Games Store. It shouldn’t be shocking considering the new-gen technology supporting the 2023 release that Alan Wake 2 won’t be available on PS4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch.
The trailer for Alan Wake 2 2023
The Alan Wake 2 trailer only provides a brief preview of what to look forward to in the follow-up. There is a crime scene that looks awful in a forest, a sight of New York City’s Caldera Street subway stops in the rain, a flash to what might be Bright Falls, and our title character — who resembles Bradley Cooper on a bad day — proclaiming something “This is not the tale you were hoping to hear. You will be eaten alive by this tale. This tale is a monster, and monsters come in all shapes and sizes.” The fearful should be aware that there is a brief jump scare in which Alan’s pale, the bleeding face appears, making it appear as though he has just received a lump of coal and is ready to eat Santa as retaliation.

In honor of Alan Wake’s anniversary, Remedy released a video update(opens in a new tab). Both members of Alan Wake, Ilkka Villi, and Matthew Porretta joined creative director Sam Lake. They give the protagonist’s voice and body in the game. The three discussed the future sequel during the update and displayed some fresh concept drawings.
According to Lake, “this process of working on the sequel feels familiar in many respects, but it also feels incredibly fresh and it feels like we are setting new ground. We are advancing the horror element of it while also investigating the complexity of the character [Alan Wake] in this new genre.
Porretta continued, “It’s like you’re truly getting to know Alan Wake in this game. “You’re beginning to understand the man himself. Consequently, he is showing you more emotion.”You can also see Villi in character as Alan Wake with full mocap gear in the official blog post update(opens in new tab) on the anniversary.

The initial Alan Wake 2 gameplay demo was supposed to be shown off by Remedy during the summer of 2022, but the publisher ultimately decided to push out the big announcement for a later time. The cause? Instead of devoting more time to a polished demo, the team wants to keep working on the main game.
“Alan Wake 2 work is progressing quite well overall. We are far along in the development process, have a ton of content, and a sizable portion of the game is playable. But after discussing it for a few months, Remedy and our fantastic publisher Epic Games have decided that we won’t be showcasing anything significant this summer, according to creative director Sam Lake.
It takes a lot of labor and several months to produce a solid, polished demo or trailer, which could interfere with development, he continued. “We want to make sure we are making the greatest and original survival horror game for Remedy because we feel like we have momentum going in that direction. You’ll have to wait a little longer for a demo and trailer since we don’t want to divert the team’s attention from creating a fantastic gaming experience.”
Alan Wake 2 narrative
Here is what little we currently know about Alan Wake’s comeback. The game is “Remedy’s first survival horror game” and a “complex, multifaceted mystery,” according to Lake. The original, in the opinion of the studio, is more of an action game with horror components.
Warning: The original Alan Wake spoilers follow. In order to release his wife at the end of the first game, Alan consented to be imprisoned in the “Dark Place.” Alan discovers more about the reasoning behind the Dark Place in the ensuing DLC episodes, “The Signal” and “The Writer,” and ultimately finds freedom by facing the Irrational Alan inside himself. He then creates the novel Return. Could Alan encounter something from the book in the sequel? The remedy is being tight with the specifics, but it appears that the game will address some significant concepts.
Prior to the announcement, Project Big Fish was the sequel’s internal codename, according to Lake. “Ideas are like fish, according to David Lynch. You can remain in the shallow water to catch small fish. However, you must go deeper if you want to catch the larger fish. Our huge fish is Alan Wake 2 We are submerging deeper than ever into a sea of gloom.”
