Last week, Remedy announced the sequel to its 2010 action-adventure game, Alan Wake 2. And although the team has not revealed any additional details, Sam Lake did confirm that it will be a third-person game.
Sam Lake also stated that Ilkka Villi and Matthew Porretta will return in the role of Alan Wake. Matthew Porretta will lend his voice to Alan Wake, whereas Ilkka Villi will lend his looks.
Thank you for being as excited about Alan Wake 2 as we are ????. A couple of easy clarifications before we go dark to continue the work. Yes, this is a 3rd person game. Yes, both Ilkka Villi and Matthew Porretta return in the role of Alan Wake. #AlanWake @alanwake @remedygames pic.twitter.com/8UvzXGgKdE

Alan Wake 2 will be coming exclusively to Epic Games Store. However, there isn’t currently any ETA on when the game will release.
Alan Wake 2 will be a current-gen only game. Since Control, the previous game from Remedy, used the Norightlight Engine, we can assume that AW2 will be also using this in-house engine. We can also assume that it will support NVIDIA’s DLSS tech and, perhaps, some Ray Tracing effects.
Stay tuned for more!
