Followers of the 2010 cult-hit Alan Wake have been ready a very long time for a correct sequel. The robust remaster in 2021 helped remind individuals concerning the unique sport, as did Alan Wake themed DLC for Treatment’s unbelievable Management which formally tied the 2 sport universes collectively. The existence of a real sequel was confirmed on the Sport Awards in 2021 with a deliberate launch in 2023.
Matthew Porretta, who performs the titular Alan Wake, appeared on a podcast this previous week titled Monsters, Madness and Magic the place he and host Justin chat about all method of issues. It’s a terrific pay attention, however the really thrilling info got here simply over 16 minutes into the Podcast. Discussing Alan Wake 2, Porretta stated, “I’ve been engaged on it. That’s supposed to return out in October. We’re in the midst of engaged on it now.”
He went on to say that he was simply in Finland working with Treatment on the sport.
Again in February Treatment said that they deliberate on having all the sport’s content material in place “quickly” so the timeframe would appear to line up.
After all, Porretta wasn’t commenting in any official capability. Nonetheless, his phrases have been given some weight by Treatment themselves asking to have the podcast edited. Within the feedback a person requested Monstres, Insanity and Magic’s host why he didn’t press Porretta a bit of extra on the subject, to which Justin stated, “I didn’t press something Alan Wake associated due to NDAs and such, and I used to be contacted by Treatment this morning to edit the interview however I wasn’t in a position to earlier than the cat was out of the bag.”
When requested what Treatment had requested him to edit, Justin replied that, “Treatment emailed me and requested me to edit out the October launch info, nonetheless, i used to be not house and in a position to pull the interview earlier than IGN obtained a maintain of it. They not want for me to edit the interview since its far too late at this level.”
Treatment’s speedy makes an attempt to get the podcast edited definitely lend loads of credence to Porretta’s phrases. You could possibly argue that they merely wished to curb the knowledge being unfold in order to not get individuals labored up over one thing that isn’t going to occur, however it nonetheless appears a bit of suspicious that they might trouble.
My guess is that we’ll in all probability see an official annoucement inside every week or so, because it appears pointless to cover it now until Porretta was talking utter nonsense.
October is a wonderful selection for a launch date, too. Proper in the midst of spooky season is ideal for some supernatural horror.
And at last, an enormous shout out to Justin over at Monsters, Insanity and Magic for conducting a superb, enjoyable interview and likewise managing to unintentionally get an enormous scoop within the course of.
