Epic Games and Remedy Entertainment have announced a delay to the release of the hotly anticipated survival horror sequel, Alan Wake 2. Initially planned to launch on 17th October, the game is now coming out 10 days later, on 27th October 2023.

A statement on its social channels explains the move:

In a nutshell, Alan Wake 2's launch is moving to later in October to provide "more space for everyone to enjoy their favorite games". Indeed, there are a number of high profile games targeting that month, with the likes of Assassin's Creed Mirage, Lords of the Fallen, and of course, Marvel's Spider-Man 2 all arriving within weeks of each other. Remedy's sequel was going to be releasing right in the middle of all this, with Sony's superhero exclusive in particular looming large. Now, the game is stepping out to the tail end of October, where the schedule is quieter.

We will be seeing more Alan Wake 2 very soon, as it's confirmed to be making an appearance during the Gamescom Opening Night Live presentation.
