Remedy Entertainment recently announced that Alan Wake Remastered will launch for Nintendo Switch this fall. The port will reportedly be a digital-only release and will run natively on the console. Additionally, Remedy also shared new concept art and an update for Alan Wake 2 in an Alan Wake anniversary update with Sam Lake, Ilkka Villi, and Matthew Porreta. The update states players “will have to wait a bit longer for a demo and trailer.” Lastly, Remedy also announced that the previously announced Alan Wake TV show is still in the works, and the rights to the series have now been bought by AMC Networks (The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad).
The full update message can be seen below:
“Everything with Alan Wake 2 development is going really well. We are deep in production, have a lot of material, and a great deal of the game is playable,” said Lake. “But we’ve been talking for the past couple of months and have come to the decision here at Remedy, along with our wonderful publisher Epic Games, that we will not be showing anything big this summer.”
“To create a proper, polished demo or a trailer takes a lot of effort, and it’s several months of work that could take away from development,” he continued. “We feel that we have momentum going, and we want to make sure we are creating the best, and first, survival horror game for Remedy. We don’t want to take the team away from that focus, so we’re going to keep going and making a great game experience, and unfortunately, you’ll have to wait a bit longer for a demo and trailer.”
Alan Wake 2 is slated for a 2023 release and will be published by Epic Games.
