Alan Wake 2 is the long-awaited sequel to the original 2010 game. Alan Wake 2 was something of a surprise announcement last year since it had been over 11 years since the first game had come out. Given the big time gap between games, fans of the series and newcomers alike will have lots of questions about the Alan Wake 2. Questions such as do players need to play the first Alan Wake before diving into Alan Wake 2?
Do Players Need to Play the First Alan Wake Before Alan Wake 2?
Sam Lake, the creative director at Remedy Entertainment (the studio behind the Alan Wake games) has confirmed that players will not need to have played the first Alan Wake game before jumping into Alan Wake 2. Although players who have finished the first game will likely appreciate Alan Wake 2 more it makes sense that the studio wouldn’t make it a requirement given the long time between games.
