The creator of Max Payne reported that quarterly sales came in at €9.4 million – almost the same as last year. However, the operating loss amounted to €2.4m. The thing is that Remedy Entertainment has increased the current expenses – many projects are in development, including two games in the Control universe, Alan Wake 2, a remake of the Max-Payne -Dilogy and the Vanguard Project.

However, Remedy Entertainment received numerous publisher payments for the development of Alan Wake 2 and the Max Payne duology, as well as royalties from the sales of Alan Wake Remastered, Control, and CrossfireX. This earned the company most of its announced revenue.

In the report, Remedy Entertainment also revealed that development of Alan Wake 2 is progressing according to plan, with the game still slated for release in 2023. The project, codenamed Condor (a Control spin-off), has already entered pre-production. And the game codenamed Heron (probably the sequel to Control) is still in the concept stages. Finally, the studio has again confirmed that the start of active development of Vanguard has been pushed back to 2023.
