Remedy Entertainment Gave Updates During an Earnings Report
The Remedy Entertainment studio gave its recent updates on its new titles during a recent earnings report. It gave updates on five upcoming titles that were currently in the works, and CEO Tero Virtala even made some comments after the publishing of the financial earnings report. Virtala first spoke about the upcoming and very anticipated sequel to Alan Wake. Apparently, the survival horror title will be available in 2023 and is in the full production stage.
While Alan Wake 2 will not be a full action-adventure like the first game, it will retain those features while adding survival horror elements. The next game that was discussed was Codename Vanguard, which Remedy will be co-publishing with Tencent. Not much is known about that title but it will be a live-service title that will have cooperative elements. According to Virtala, Vanguard is making good progress.
Remedy Used Codename Titles for Many of its Upcoming Games
The next games were also given codename titles. Two of those were both spin-offs of Control. One is Codename Condor, which is still in the proof-of-concept stage, while the other, Codename Heron, is in the concept stage with continuing prototyping. Reportedly, Codename Heron will be the bigger game out of the two and will be a sequel to Control. According to Remedy, these two titles are focused on having the right tools and technology to serve future games.
The other two titles were the remasters of Max Payne 1 and 2. While Remedy is working on those remakes, the games will be released as one because that is the company’s agreement with Rockstar. It’s actually Rockstar that is funding the remastering of these two titles.
