Alan Wake 2 Has Sold 1.3 Million Copies, Remedy’s Fastest Selling Game So Far

We know how well Alan Wake 2 performed in sales as Remdy has revealed that the long-awaited sequel sold 1.3 million copies as of the beginning of February, according to a press release. Interestingly, Remedy added that Alan Wake 2 is Remedy’s fastest title to date, and its first million copies were sold in 2023 alone, with the rest to follow in 2024 and beyond.

“We are happy with the start of Alan Wake 2’s sales. The price point has also remained at a high level, and the game has already recouped a significant part of the development and marketing expenses. We will continue to develop the game to serve existing fans and attract new players and expect the game to continue selling well.” Remedy CEO Tero Virtala said in a statement.

“The successful launch of Alan Wake 2 has supported our other game projects: Condor, Control 2 and Max Payne 1&2 remake have all increased development pace thanks to the personnel released from Alan Wake 2, and we expect these projects to reach their next development stages during the first half of 2024. We now have two established franchises: Control and Alan Wake, which are linked through the Remedy Connected Universe. Growing and expanding these franchises will be a key part of our future.”

Remedy says that Alan Wake 2 sold 50 percent more than its previous Remedy Connect Universe title, Control, compared to the first two months on sale. Remedy adds that its digital-only 2023 release sold three times as many digital copies as Control in that time. Remedy says it expects Alan Wake 2 to generate long-tail sales, with two pieces of paid DLC coming in the future.

“Alan Wake 2 is unlike anything you’ll play now or next year. It is a bold, risky sequel that respects the player by delivering a captivating tale. In the decade since the American Nightmare expansion, Remedy has seen some lows but has bounced back tremendously. Alan Wake 2 is a brilliant follow-up to a cult favourite game that respects the player’s ability to focus and keep up with the plot. What you see is a culmination of nearly thirty years of talent brought forth to deliver an experience that very few other developers can provide,” Bobby said in our Alan Wake 2 review.

Alan Wake 2 first launched on October 27th and is currently available on PC via the Epic Games Store, PS5, and Xbox Series.
