Remedy Entertainment has promised Alan Wake 2 has been on track for release in 2023 for quite some time now, but after a recent slip of the tongue by the protagonist’s voice actor, we finally got confirmation of the official release date. Alan Wake 2 is indeed coming to PlayStation 5 and PC in October 2023.
Epic Games Publishing and Remedy Entertainment announced the release date of Alan Wake 2 during the PlayStation Showcase 2023 presentation on May 24, 2023. The game was given a release date of October 17, 2023, on PS5 and PC via the Epic Games Store. We also got a good look at new gameplay in the game. It looks like Alan Wake isn’t the only character we’ll be controlling in the new game. When FBI agents come to investigate a string of murders, we find ourselves in control of a female agent known as Anderson as she fights off a bevy of shadow creatures similar to the supernatural monsters of the first game. You can see the newest trailer in action below.
It looks like Alan Wake’s habit for writing horror that seems to come to life is also making its way over to Alan Wake 2. He seems to be in the midst of writing a new supernatural crime thriller, and the horrors therein seem to be creeping over to the real world. The game also seems like it will keep the third-person shooter style that the first game had.
Alan Wake voice actor Matthew Poretta almost spilled the beans on Alan Wake 2’s release, but now we have the official date set in stone. Stay tuned for more coverage as we make our way towards the release date in October.
