Remedy has provided updates on its in-development Control games
Plus the developer discussed Alan Wake 2 and more during its financial results
Remedy Entertainment has provided updates on the various game projects it currently has in development.
The Finnish studio’s latest financial results included comments from CEO Tero Virtala discussing the progress of Alan Wake 2, Vanguard, Condor and other projects.
“Our partner Smilegate, together with Microsoft, launched CrossfireX on Xbox One and Series X | S in February,” Virtala said. “A dedicated team at Remedy has continued to support both Crossfire HD and CrossfireX.
“Alan Wake 2 is in the full production stage. A lot of work remains, but the game is starting to take a more complete form in many areas. As communicated earlier, Alan Wake 2 will be released in 2023.

“Codename Vanguard, a free-to-play co-operative game to be co-published with Tencent, has made good progress since the previous quarter.
“The project is in the proof-of-concept stage. We have continued to strengthen the team. Vanguard and our other projects have benefitted from our operations in Sweden.
“Codename Condor, a spin-off game of Control, continues in the proof-of-concept stage. Codename Heron, a bigger Control game, is in the concept stage and its prototyping continues.
“Additionally, together with the Northlight-technology team, the focus has been on developing the required technology and tools that will serve a number of Remedy games in the future.”
Remedy announced last month that it’s also developing remakes of Max Payne and Max Payne 2.
The games will be sold together as a single package and will be released on Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5 and PC.
Both games, which are currently “in the concept development stage”, will use Remedy’s Northlight game engine, which was used for Quantum Break and Control.
“The public reception to this announcement was overwhelmingly positive,” Virtala said. “Max Payne clearly has a special place in the hearts of not only Remedians but gamers across the globe. We are very excited to bring the remade game for old and new fans alike.”
