In its latest financial results report, Remedy Entertainment provided brief updates on several games in development at the indie studio. While CrossfireX continues to be backed by a “dedicated” team according to CEO Tero Virtala, Remedy is currently working on Alan Wake 2, remakes of the first two Max Payne games, Vanguard and Control spin-offs. Of all these games, Alan Wake 2 seems to be the closest, currently set to release in 2023.
“Alan Wake 2 is in full production” Virtala said during the briefing. “A lot of work remains, but the game is starting to take on a more complete shape in many areas. As previously announced, Alan Wake 2 will be released in 2023.”
Codename Vanguard, a free-to-play co-op game, is currently being co-developed in co-op with Tencent and is progressing “well”, while the Max Payne remakes and Control spin-offs are currently in the proof-of-concept stage of development. These games are expected to release by 2025, as Remedy is targeting major game launches between 2023 and 2025.
Virtala added that the game engine Northlight – which was used for Quantum Break and Control – has a team working on further software development for Remedy’s current and future projects.
Remakes for Max Payne and Max Payne 2 were announced in early April, which will be remade in the Northlight engine and funded by Rockstar, the owners of the IP. As for Max Payne 3, Rockstar celebrates its 10th anniversary with a new version of the famous game soundtrack from the group Health.
