What is the Remedy Connected Universe or RCU?
As its name indicates, this universe is the one shared by the Remedy Entertainment franchises, specifically Alan Wake and Control, including the story DLC for each one.
Remedy Entertainment had made clear its intentions to make these 2 franchises take place in the same universe, to do so, it had used the AWE expansion of Control and soon Alan Wake 2.
Remedy’s narrative universe began with Alan Wake, although it was not until Control that the studio began to make it evident.
First, in the original Alan Wake game supernatural events occur and in Control they are investigated by the Federal Bureau of Control (FBC, an organization to which the protagonist, Jesse Faden, belongs), hence the events of both franchises occur in the same universe.
Control and Alan Wake are closely connected
What role will Control and the FBC play in Alan Wake 2?
Control already showed what it was like to see the supernatural events of Alan Wake from the perspective of the FBC, but in Alan Wake 2 it will be possible to see how this mysterious entity operates from the outside, thanks to Alan Wake and Saga Anderson, the 2 protagonists of this new installment.
That said, the FBC will play an important role, according to the studio’s writer and head of the franchise, Sam Lake (via IGN), so it’s not just a nod or easter egg.
In case you missed it: Alan Wake 2 was delayed for good reason.
