When asking Rossario about the development process, he highlighted ‘The team are in the process of truly crafting this story. It is going to be a huge undertaking but we are doing our best to intertwine many stories between the main objective. There will of course be our main antagonist, but there is a true underlining to this game which we are determined to bring out’.
The combination of mystery and horror really shines through with Alan Wake 2, which will have players on the edge of their seat. The stories and objectives intertwining within the game will ensure a fulfilling and satisfying end to the game.
