Alan Wake 2 Delayed by A Little Over a Week So There’s “More Space” For Fans to Play Other Game Launches

Studio Remedy Entertainment and Publisher Epic Games have announced that their upcoming adventure thriller Alan Wake 2 has been delayed to October 27, 2023, from its previous October 17, 2023,r release date.

The reasoning given was so that players can enjoy more of their favorite games during the jam-packed month of October. Silent Hope, Assassin’s Creed Mirage, Crymachina, and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 are only some of the other planned October releases.

A physical release is not planned at this time.

Alan Wake 2 is an intense story and a layered mystery that takes players on two disturbing journeys, running in parallel and echoing each other in strange and unexpected ways,” said Sam Lake, Creative Director and Lead Writer of Alan Wake 2. “A newcomer to Alan Wake’s world, FBI Agent Saga Anderson’s investigation offers players a unique lens into this survival horror experience.”
