‘Condor, Control 2 and Max Payne 1&2 remake have all increased development pace’ due to Alan Wake 2’s success

Remedy’s CEO, Tero Virtala, has shared the impact of Alan Wake 2 on the studio and its upcoming games in development.

Alan Wake 2 was released in late 2024 to widespread critical acclaim, and it has sold 1.3 million units as of the beginning of February 2024, according to a stock exchange memo from Remedy.

“By comparison, Alan Wake 2 sold over 50% more copies and over three times more digital copies in its first two months than Control did in its first four months,” the memo explains. “A great game can generate excellent long tail sales, and we expect this to be the case with Alan Wake 2 as well.”

The memo also mentions two paid DLCs and ongoing updates for Alan Wake 2, indicating continued support for the horror game and its community. The most recent update, released towards the end of January 2024, included chapter selection and an option to disable jumpscare visuals.

“We will continue to develop the game to serve existing fans and attract new players and expect the game to continue selling well,” Virtala explains. “The successful launch of Alan Wake 2 has supported our other game projects: Condor, Control 2, and Max Payne 1&2 remake have all increased development pace thanks to the personnel released from Alan Wake 2, and we expect these projects to reach their next development stages during the first half of 2024.”
