Remedy Entertainment, the studio behind the hit Alan Wake franchise and more recent games like Quantum Break, is a studio that isn’t afraid to take its time in order to ensure their game is exactly where they want it to be. The developer has built up a pretty loyal following over the years, a following which has become accustomed to waiting for new titles as Remedy Entertainment tends to take a while developing and releasing new games. However, according to recent comments from Remedy itself, that may soon be changing.
Recently, Remedy welcomed in a new CEO, former head of RedLynx Tero Virtala. One of the major changes Virtala wants to make is getting Remedy’s games finished more quickly, a sentiment which was echoed by the studio’s head of communications Thomas Puha:
“We want to be making games faster. That takes a lot of internal selling as well and logistics. There’s the tech team, and then two other teams working on the games. That takes a lot of managing, but Remedy spent the first year adapting to that change. No one at the company wants to spend four or five years making a single thing. It burns people out, and you just want to ship games.”
As for upcoming games, Remedy has two major projects in the pipeline. First, it has signed a deal with Korean developer Smilegate to create the single-player campaign for Crossfire 2, the upcoming sequel to Smilegate’s hit 2007 shooter MMO, Crossfire.
