With 2019’s Control, Remedy Entertainment established the Remedy Connected Universe, which, like its name suggests, pulls two of Remedy’s owned properties – Alan Wake and Control – into a shared universe.
Alan Wake 2 launches on October 27 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
Additionally, a familiar character will also be introduced as an active part of the story in the upcoming sequel.
Just as Control had plenty of references to the original Alan Wake (and even stronger connections in its AWE DLC), Alan Wake 2 will also continue to make those connections, and set things up for the shared universe’s future.
