Alan Wake 2 Without Surprises; Remedy Delivers on Promises
Remedy revealed its latest financial report. From it we learned, among other things, what stage of work the Finnish team's current projects are at. Unfortunately, we will have to wait a while for the results.
During Remedy Entertainment's board meeting, the developers of Alan Wake 2 once again assured us that their flagship game is on track for next year's release.. According to the studio's latest financial report the title is in the "development phase," but still needs work. Unfortunately, the developers did not reveal a more precise date for the horror game's debut.
In addition to the aforementioned item, Remedy CEO Tero Virtala devoted some time to the other projects in which the studio is involved.
Among those discussed were projects related to Control, which are currently known under the working titles Condor and Heron. The former is to be a spin-off of the original Control and is in the prototype phase to help test how the overall game's premise will work out.
Meanwhile, Heron is in the so-called conceptual phase. According to studio representatives, early development is going well, and the team working on the project is gradually expanding. The title is described as "Control with a bigger budget", that is, it can be regarded as a kind of sequel.
The list also includes Vanguard. A project we heard about some time ago, just like Condor is in the prototype stage. This F2P network co-op game is being developed by Remedy and Tencent.
Also lined up are remakes of the first and second installments of Max Payne, which the studio is working on together with Rockstar Games. However, this is a melody of the future, as Virtala mentioned that until April only small teams were involved in these projects (via TechSpot).
