Remedy Entertainment has released an Alan Wake Anniversary Video in honor of Alan Wake’s 12th birthday, and in it, the studio showcases some new Alan Wake 2 concept art and more.
More specifically, Remedy’s new update includes four new pieces of Alan Wake 2 concept art and news that Alan Wake Remastered is coming to Switch this fall. There’s also an update on the Alan Wake TV show first announced in 2018 (we can’t believe it’s still happening either). As far as the new concept art goes, it’s exactly what you’d expect: moody, dark and subtle in terms of what it reveals about Alan Wake 2. The art looks great! You can check it out in the slideshow below:
Moving on to what the team has to say about Alan Wake 2, here’s what Remedy’s creative director Sam Lake shared:
“Everything with the development of Alan Wake 2 is going very well. We are in full production, but we have a lot of material and much of the game is playable. But we’ve been talking for the last couple of months and we’ve come to the decision here at Remedy, along with our wonderful publisher Epic Games, that we won’t be showing anything big this summer. Creating a proper and polished demo or trailer takes a lot of effort, and it takes several months of work that can hamper development.
“We feel like we have momentum and we want to make sure that we are creating the best and first survival horror game for Remedy. We don’t want to take the team out of that focus so we’re going to keep going and make a great gaming experience and unfortunately you’ll have to wait a little longer for a demo and trailer.”

Elsewhere in the video, Remedy reveals that Alan Wake Remastered, which arrived on PlayStation and Xbox and PC consoles last year, is coming to Switch this fall. It will be a digital-only release on Switch and runs natively on console – it’s not a cloud version like Remedy’s Control is on the platform.
Remedy also revealed that its Alan Wake TV adaptation, announced four years ago, is still a real thing and is happening. In fact, the studio has found a home for the series: AMC. You probably know AMC as the home of Living Dead, Breaking Badand You better call Saul, and now, AMC Networks has bought the rights to this Alan Wake adaptation. Remedy says there’s still a lot to do for the series to become a reality, so don’t expect to watch an episode anytime soon.
