What You Need to Know

  • Remedy Entertainment has changed its studio logo for the first time in over 20 years, acknowledging that it's now known for more than just Max Payne.
  • The new logo reflects how the studio has evolved over time, moving away from the old ball design to encompass a broader range of games.
  • With the new logo comes the reassurance that Alan Wake 2 is still on track for a 2023 release, as previously announced by the developers.

For those of us who have grown accustomed to Remedy Entertainment's iconic logo over the years, it's time for a change.

The legendary developer unveiled (opens in a new tab) its new logo on Friday (as shown above), marking the first time it has undergone a makeover in more than two decades. Remedy explained that the reason for this change is that its business has evolved over time. The ball design in the old logo was a nod to Max Payne, but Remedy has created many other games since then.

Along with the new logo, Remedy has also reiterated that Alan Wake 2 is set for release in 2023. While we haven't seen any gameplay footage of the highly-anticipated sequel yet, the developers originally planned to show off the game in 2022 but opted to only reveal the concept art for Alan Wake 2 in order to let the team focus on making the game--Remedy has repeatedly said the game will be released in 2023.

Although Alan Wake 2 still doesn't have an official release date, we do know that it's set to up the horror factor. While the original Alan Wake took inspiration from Stephen King's writings to create a spooky atmosphere, creative director Sam Lake has confirmed that Alan Wake 2 will be a horror game in its own right. It's also set to release on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Windows PC and PS5.

Aside from Alan Wake 2, Remedy Entertainment is also working on remakes of Max Payne and Max Payne 2, Control 2, a spin-off for Control, and a live game. All of these games are currently farther off than Alan Wake 2.

Windows Central's Take

I always find logo changes interesting. I know it doesn't matter to a lot of people, but I'm always curious about the decision-making process and what a studio or publisher is trying to convey. Apart from that, Remedy seems extremely confident that Alan Wake 2 is making it out this year. I hope so. As a huge fan of the original, I've been waiting for it for a long time. A gameplay reveal during Summer Games Showcase and an October release window would definitely make sense to me.
