Remedy Entertainment Faced 22% Revenue Dip in 2023



Remedy Entertainment Faces 22% Revenue Dip in 2023

In 2023, Remedy Entertainment saw its revenue fall by 22% to €33.9 million from €43.6 million. The Finnish game developer, known for hits like Alan Wake and Control, faced this challenge despite Alan Wake 2’s success. The game sold over 1 million units, becoming Remedy’s fastest-selling title. Yet, the company reported a €28.6 million operating loss. It made hefty investments in game development and took a hit from an impairment charge for a game named Vanguard. These factors drove the downturn.

2023 proved tough for Remedy due to heavy investments in future games like Control 2 and the multiplayer Kestrel. These moves, targeting long-term growth, hurt their short-term finances. CEO Tero Virtala stressed the value of these investments. He noted Alan Wake 2 has made back a significant portion of its development costs.

Remedy looks forward to its upcoming games, including Max Payne 1 & 2 remakes, with budgets like that of Alan Wake 2. The company plans to push these projects into their next development phases in 2024. Remedy aims to elevate its franchises to well-known brands. They seek to achieve steady growth in their user base and frequent releases of sequels.

Despite the financial setbacks in 2023, Remedy expects its revenue and profitability to improve in 2024, depending on its decisions regarding self-publishing and potential new publishing partnerships for its games. The company’s strategy is focused on leveraging its Remedy Connected Universe, comprising Alan Wake and Control, to build a stronger, more profitable future.
