Remedy Entertainment has shared some concept art for Alan Wake 2 and an update on its progress. Sam Lake, Creative Director, said that Remedy and Epic Games have agreed to not focus on a trailer or demo yet so resources can be put toward development. The team is happy with its current pace, and a large portion of the game is playable, but there will not be a big reveal during the summer. The images were shared in this week’s anniversary update video.
Everything with Alan Wake 2 development is going really well. We are deep in production but have a lot of material, and a great deal of the game is playable. 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.
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.
