Alan Wake II has been delayed – but only by 10 days. The team at Remedy has announced the delay on Twitter X, saying that it’s hopeful the delay will give players more space to enjoy their games in what has become a stacked October, stopping short of revealing whether there were any other reasons for the short delay.
The tweet reads, “An update from the Alan Wake 2 team: we’re moving Alan Wake 2’s launch from October 17th to October 27th.
“October is an amazing month for game launches and we hope this date shift gives more space for everyone to enjoy their favorite games. We can’t wait to show you what everyone’s favorite novelist is up to in the Dark Place next week. Thanks for your patience!”
