The sequel Alan Wake 2 marks the long-awaited comeback of the author and creator of nightmares Alan Wake, and Remedy Entertainment is going all out on this one. Our enthusiasm has only heightened as creative director Sam Lake recently told GamesRadar+ that the project has “grown more ambitious and more unique” after years of attempting to make this thing a reality.
In fact, Alan Wake 2 is without a doubt one of the most anticipated horror games in the near future, with Remedy announcing that this eerie survival horror game will debut in 2023. Since it’s been more than a decade since we battled the shadows in one of the best Xbox 360 games, you’ll want to keep reading to find out everything we currently know about Alan Wake 2.
Alan Wake 2 Release Date
October 17, 2023 has been scheduled aside for the release of Alan Wake 2. Launch platforms for the game include PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC.
Ritualistic murders in a small town. A writer trapped in a nightmare. An FBI agent looking for answers.
Two realities. Two hero characters. One horror story that wants them dead.

Due to Epic Games releasing the upcoming survival horror game, Remedy has also revealed that Alan Wake 2 will be made available on PC through the Epic Games Store. Given the new-gen technology supporting the 2023 release, it is not believed that Alan Wake 2 will be available on PS4, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch.

Trailer For Alan Wake 2
The Alan Wake 2 trailer only gives us a brief taste of what to anticipate from the follow-up. A bleak crime scene in a forest, a wet shot of New York City and the (fantasy) Caldera Street subway stop, a flash to what might be Bright Falls, and our title character — who resembles Bradley Cooper on a bad day — saying “this is not the story you want it to be” are all present.
Playstaion has uploaded a Gameplay reveal Trailer on YouTube, which you can watch below:
This tale will consume you whole. Monsters have many faces, and this story is full of them. The apprehensive should be aware that there is a brief jump scare as Alan’s pallid, bleeding visage appears as though he has just received a lump of coal in his stocking and wants to devour Santa as retaliation.
Alan Wake 2 Gameplay
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 first survival horror game for Remedy because we feel like we have momentum going. You’ll have to wait a little while longer for a demo and trailer since we don’t want to divert the team’s attention from creating a fantastic game experience.”
Alan Wake 2 Story
Here is what little we currently know about Alan Wake’s comeback. The game is “Remedy’s first survival horror game” and a “deep, layered 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. Alan consented to being imprisoned in the “Dark Place” at the conclusion of the first game in order to release his wife. 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? Remedy is being tight with the specifics, but it appears that the game will address some significant concepts.
Project Big Fish has been the sequel’s internal codename up to the announcement, according to Lake. Ideas are like fish, according to David Lynch. Stay in the shallow water if you wish to capture small fish. But you have to dive deeper if you want to catch the big fish. Our main catch is Alan Wake 2. We are plunging into a sea of darkness at greater depths than before.
