Remedy Says Alan Wake 2 Has Sold Over 1.3 Million Copies And Its Next Projects Are Picking Up Pace

Patiently waiting for Control 2 news.

Remedy Entertainment has announced that Alan Wake 2 has sold a huge 1.3 million units as of the beginning of February 2024, making it the company’s fastest selling game so far.

As a comparison, Remedy says that Alan Wake 2 sold over 50% more copies in its first two months than its most recent major title, Control, did in its first four months. The company says it expects Alan Wake 2 to have excellent long tail sales, citing Control’s eventual run of over 4 million units since it debuted in 2019.

“We are happy with the start of Alan Wake 2’s sales,” says Remedy’s CEO Tero Virtala in the news release. “The price point has also remained at a high level, and the game has already recouped a significant part of the development and marketing expenses. We will continue to develop the game to serve existing fans and attract new players and expect the game to continue selling well.”

Virtala also reveals that development on Remedy’s future projects has picked up now that the Alan Wake 2 team has been disseminated into other areas, saying, “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. We now have two established franchises: Control and Alan Wake, which are linked through the Remedy Connected Universe. Growing and expanding these franchises will be a key part of our future.”

Brodie gave Alan Wake 2 a huge 9.5/10 in his review, and wrote, “While I’m sure there were countless drafts and edits throughout the journey to this point, this Alan Wake II is proof that great things come to those who wait. Like breaking through after a thirteen year stretch of writer’s block, I can only imagine the sense of relief in letting this monster of a game loose.”

Multiple updates have been released for the game since launch, adding things like a New Game Plus mode with extra story content, and two DLC expansions are on the way this year.
