Remedy Entertainment has shared its latest financial results report, and with it comes comments by CEO Tero Virtala that provide insight on when the company plans to release some of its most highly anticipated titles. Alan Wake 2, the sequel to the 2010 cult classic, is planned for release as early as next year. Virtala also brought up the previously announced remakes for the original two Max Payne titles and a “bigger Control game” code named Heron, and while he didn’t give explicit release dates for those, he mentioned that Remedy plans to have “major game launches between 2023 and 2025,” indicating that one or both will likely debut during that time frame. Other projects that Remedy are working on include “Vanguard,” a free-to-play co-op game developed in collaboration with Tencent, and “Condor,” another game set in the universe established by Control.
Alan Wake 2 is in the full production stage. A lot of work remains, but the game is starting to take a more complete form in many areas. As communicated earlier, Alan Wake 2 will be released in 2023.
Codename Vanguard, a free-to-play co-operative game to be co-published with Tencent, has made good progress since the previous quarter. The project is in the proof-of-concept stage. We have continued to strengthen the team. Vanguard and our other projects have benefitted from our operations in Sweden.
Codename Condor, a spin-off game of Control, continues in the proof-of-concept stage. Codename Heron, a bigger Control game, is in the concept stage and its prototyping continues. Additionally, together with the Northlight-technology team, the focus has been on developing the required technology and tools that will serve a number of Remedy games in the future.
After the reporting period, in the beginning of April, we announced a partnership with Rockstar Games to remake Max Payne and Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. The public reception to this announcement was overwhelmingly positive. Max Payne clearly has a special place in the hearts of not only Remedians but gamers across the globe. We are very excited to bring the remade game for old and new fans alike.
