Alan Wake 2, the sequel to Remedy Entertainment’s spooky action-adventure game Alan Wake, is coming and we can’t wait to jump back into the fictional town of Bright Falls with our favourite thriller writer. If you’re wondering when the Alan Wake 2 release date is, you’re not alone – the 2010 release has a cult following that, after Control, is eager to know what happens in the next chapter of this incredible story.
In a PlayStation Blog post announcing the sequel, Sam Lake, Remedy Entertainment’s creative director, has expressed that Alan Wake 2 is going to be a survival horror as opposed to an action game with elements of horror, so fans can expect something a little scarier when the Alan Wake 2 release date arrives. However, the question still remains: when does this highly anticipated title actually come out?
Alan Wake 2 release date rumours
At the moment, we don’t have a specific release date to talk about. However, we do know that Alan Wake 2 is going to be released in 2023.
This information was revealed when Alan Wake 2 was announced in December 2021 – however, we don’t know anything more about when to expect it just yet.
