Apologies for the lack of a better word, but Remedy Entertainment are expert when it comes to trippy a** games. Both 2010's Alan Wake and 2018's Control are far from your typical gaming experiences, which would make sense for the Finnish studio to get a chance to work on something equally freaky and experimental like a Doctor Strange game. But, as it turns out, this isn't just wishful thinking - it's happening.
According to Moth Culture, Remedy is going to announce its AAA Doctor Strange game alongside a teaser for this summer's E3 conference. Although the user hasn't exactly been the most trustworthy source of information in the past, what's interesting here is that Moth Culture is not the only one to make similar claims. Over a year ago, Evan Filarca also claimed that Remedy's been working on a AAA Doctor Strange game even before he leaked the info. With multiple sources suggesting the same thing, Remedy could very well be sitting on what arguably could be one of the best comic book video games for current-gen consoles.

Unfortunately, Remedy Entertainment is transparent about all the games in its pipeline. After CrossfireX, Remedy has at least four games in the works. This includes an Alan Wake sequel slated for a 2023 release as well as a multiplayer Control spin-off and a big-budget sequel. Finally, there's the co-op multiplayer game codenamed Vanguard that Remedy is working on with Tencent. You can find all this information on Remedy Entertainment's official website.
Despite our best attempts, we could not find public information suggesting that Remedy is working on a Doctor Strang outside of leaks and rumors.
While a Doctor Strange game by Remedy may or may not be in the works, gamers will be eating well for the next two years. Case in point, Firaxis Games' next project, Midnight Suns, is an upcoming tactical RPG featuring Doctor Strange, among others. The game was initially scheduled to hit store shelves this month but the release date was later pushed back to the latter half of 2022. There's also Insomniac Games' pair of Marvel games, including a sequel to 2018's Marvel's Spider-Man that's due to come out in 2023 with a Wolverine game on the docket for a release soon after.
Also, speaking of Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch is set to reprise his role as the MCU's former Sorcerer Supreme in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on May 6. The upcoming MCU film will reportedly see the debut of the MCU's version of the Illuminati.
