It bears mentioning that Alan Wake 2’s last hotfix was dropped three days ago, updating the Xbox Series X|S variant of the survival horror and bringing all platforms on the same release version subsequently. On a side note, as the news of the latest patch found its way over to Reddit, fans complained in the comments section that they’re yet to receive bonus items as part of their pre-order.

Besides a few minor hiccups, Alan Wake 2 has remained one of the most anticipated releases of 2023, and much to the relief of fans, it’s turned out just as one would expect from Remedy. Thanks to the developer constantly making efforts to ensure smooth playability for the 2010-released Alan Wake sequel, the survival horror is one of the lesser-bugged launches we’ve seen so far in 2023.

The game was released on October 27, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
