Alan Wake 2 has sold over 1.3m copies

The eagerly-anticipated Alan Wake 2 has shifted over 1.3 million copies since its release.

The news comes from Finnish developer Remedy, which reports that the title is its fastest-selling project to date. Alan Wake 2 sold 50 per cent more units than its previous title, 2019's Control, as well as 30 per cent more digital copies. That's likely a reflection of the change in consumer behaviour over the intervening four years.

Of that 1.3 million total, one million was sold by the end of 2023, while the other 300,000 copies was sold in January alone.

Alan Wake 2 launched in October 2023.

“We are happy with the start of Alan Wake 2’s sales," CEO Tero Virtala said.

"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.

"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.”

Meanwhile, Control has sold over four million copies and brought in net revenue of €100 million ($107.7 million).
