• Remedy Entertainment signed 2-project publishing deal with Epic Games in 2020
  • One of the projects is rumored to be "Alan Wake 2"
  • Remedy Entertainment hasn't officially revealed if "Alan Wake 2" is in development

Remedy Entertainment is known for its story-driven action titles like "Alan Wake," "Max Payne," "Quantum Break" and "Control" and fans expect the highly anticipated sequel "Alan Wake 2" could release soon.

Remedy has struck a two-project publishing deal with Epic Games, which are reportedly set within the same franchise. Industry watchers and fans alike speculate that these projects have something to do with "Alan Wake."

Speculations about the game's sequel further intensified recently following the release of Remedy's most recent investor's report, which offered updates on these projects.

The report does not reveal much, but it confirmed that "Remedy's AAA game project with Epic Games has moved into full production, and a second, smaller-scale game remains in full production mode". Although not officially confirmed, this AAA project is believed to be "Alan Wake 2."

Considering the production process can take years, fans would not likely see game footage anytime soon. But, if the report is indeed referring to the game's sequel, it is good news for "Alan Wake" fans who have been waiting for it for over ten years.

Rumors about the sequel started to make rounds online after Remedy announced it had signed a deal with Epic Games. The gaming studio then re-introduced the popular hero Alan Wake in the second expansion of its hit shooter title "Control."

Many fans believe it was Remedy Entertainment's way of giving fans a hint about the game sequel. In March, GamesBeat reporter and industry insider Jeff Grubb shared some interesting details about the game.

On a live stream, the insider said, "I’ve heard that Remedy is going to be making Alan Wake 2 with Epic. There was a bidding war [over Alan Wake], but Epic had the best publishing deal."

Rumors have it that Remedy Entertainment struggled to finance "Alan Wake 2" after getting the rights from Microsoft in 2019. But with Epic Games and its resources backing the gaming studio, the project seemed to have progressed smoothly.

The latest investor's report also revealed multiple games coming soon. Remedy has signed a development and co-publishing deal with 505 Games for the spin-off of "Control."
