The story of Alan Wake 2 It’s so big that it’s definitely a “monster”. This is due to Sam Lake, the creative director of Remedy Entertainment, who made fun of the “star” cast on Twitter. We haven’t heard much of Alan Wake 2 since the official announcement after a series of rumors. Remedy had previously planned to introduce the game this summer, but canceled plans to allow the team to focus on development rather than demos.
No original knowledge required to understand the story of Alan Wake 2
Filming in progress with the cast of our stellar actors.We wrote a lot of pages @yourpalclay, More than ever, I think (this story is a monster). It’s still coming after a short summer vacation from this dark place called the writer’s room. #amwriting @remedygames @ Alan Wake pic.twitter.com/mR51xtUkBe

Remedy previously stated that Alan Wake 2 does not require any prior knowledge of the series. However, it will be “added to the backstory” of the original game. In response to the tweet above, writer Clay Murphy Murphy joked that “How to Write a Keytar” helped handle the ambitious story of the sequel.

Unlike the original, Alan Wake 2 is Remedy’s first attempt at a survival horror game. Remedy calls it a “deep, layered mystery” and gives the studio the opportunity to “truely connect gameplay and story.”
Alan Wake 2 has no release date, but will be released in 2023, especially for PS5, among other platforms. The summer showcase plan may have been canceled, but the game may appear in later events such as the Game Awards.
