As part of the Finnish studio’s third quarter fiscal year 2022 report, Remedy Entertainment CEO Tero Virtala spoke about the company’s current developments.
Announced in April, the Max Payne 1&2 collection (remakes of Max Payne and Max Payne 2) is being created by a small team using “production and technology synergies” at Remedy.
The Control branch, called Condor, is still in the proof-of-concept phase. the game prototypes are already fun to play. The Great Heron project (also in the Control universe) remains in the concept stage.
The shareware co-op shooter, codenamed Vanguard, doesn’t deviate from the plan announced in August; it will be an expensive utility game with a rich world and superior elements compared to other similar projects.
Finally, the survival horror Alan Wake II is in active development and is still slated for release in 2023. There is still a lot of work ahead, but the project is moving forward in all directions.
“User testing is ongoing and feedback is encouraging. Seeing how the elements fit together, I can confidently say that we will release a great game,” Virtala said.
Remedy’s third-quarter operating profit fell by €3 million, mainly due to Alan Wake II and Condor. Alan Wake Remastered (coming to Nintendo Switch on October 20th) and Crossfire have yet to deliver.
