Remedy Gives Update on Alan Wake 2, Control Sequel, and More – News
In the final report for the fiscal year 2021/2022 (which ended on March 31, 2022) Tero VirtalaCEO of Remedy Entertainment, on the status of the numerous projects the Finnish developer is currently working on in parallel.
The furthest advanced in the major projects is therefore Alan Wake 2, which is currently in the main phase of production. “There is still a lot of work to be done, but the game is taking shape in many areas,” said Virtala, confirming that the title will be released in 2023. Another team at Remedy supports Smilegate with the online shooters Crossfire HD and CrossfireXwhose campaigns Remedy developed.
All other projects are still in pre-production: Codename Condor, a spin-off of Control (in the test, grade 8.5) with a focus on PvE co-op is still in the proof-of-concept phase, so the basic gameplay concept is still being worked on with early prototypes. Project Hedon, a “bigger control game”, is still in the concept phase, in which the prototype is being worked on. In addition, the relevant team is working with the programmers behind the in-house Northlight engine to create the tools and technologies for the future Remedy games.
The free-to-play co-op game Condename Vanguard, for which Tencent acts as publisher, is still in the proof-of-concept stage, with the corresponding team having been enlarged. Regarding the recently announced Max Payne 1 & 2 remakes Virtala says nothing, but emphasizes the positive response to the announcement. In the report, Virtala promises major releases between 2023 and 2025.
