Video game developers and publishers working in sync with each other is always a nice thing, one that ultimately leads to tip-top, polished titles, with Alan Wake 2 being the latest example in line regarding that. Remedy’s Communications Director, Thomas Puha, posted online to praise Epic Games — the project’s publisher — for letting the studio make the game they truly wanted.
Shoutout to @EpicPublishing They let us make the game we wanted. Nothing but supportive. Epic's production team especially KILLED it on Alan Wake 2. They really care. Never have I read so much good feedback from milestones and have producers play so much of the game constantly.

It appears Epic truly dug in on the sequel’s development, according to how Thomas says, “Nothing but supportive. Epic’s production team especially KILLED it on Alan Wake 2,” continuing the praise by highlighting how the Epic producers went through the game constantly in order to hammer out any missteps ahead of time. Fast-forward to today, when Alan Wake 2’s release is two days in, the results have clearly manifested.
Rounding up the reviews for the survival horror, many are of the opinion that this game was worth the 13 years of waiting that all of us had to endure, hoping for an Alan Wake successor. The title sits at a solid 88 Metascore on Metacritic and has gone on to garner universal praise for its next-level graphics, deep level of immersion, and highly engaging narrative that keeps one on the edge of their seat.
“Borderline photorealistic” is what many are referring the game’s visuals to, at least on consoles. On PC, though, it’s a different story, with performance and graphical capabilities relying solely on hardware.

Thomas Puha also expanded on the matter earlier, saying that the game works great on consoles, and runs as well as possible on PC. “Yes. I have the unofficial role of “player experience” which is a very very loose term, but I’m all about the console quality as we have more than enough folks to drive the PC quality to as good as it can be,” Thomas said when concerns over the title’s performance ran rampant.
Alan Wake 2 was released on October 27, 2023, for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, and PC, following its initial announcement during 2021’s The Game Awards.
