- Actor Allusion: Upon seeing Jack's time travel powers for himself, Nick asks Jack if he's "some kind of X-Man". Shawn Ashmore plays Iceman in the X-Men movie franchise.
- Mythology Gag:
- Sam Lake has another cameo, this time in the Alan Wake teaser found in the game opening. It ends with a mugshot of his character being pinned on a board, and he's unsurprisingly scowling again.
- When finding out a shutter code by looking through time, a guard reveals it's "665, the neighbor of the Beast."
- In the university opening, Jack passes a whiteboard covered in wild theories about Alan Wake, nodding towards the Gainax Ending that spawned numerous fan theories.
- You can also watch episodes of Night Springs, the Show Within a Show from Alan Wake.
- No Dub for You: the Steam version of the game doesn't have neither the Mexican Spanish dub used in the Xbox One version nor the European Spanish one either. This is probably intentional because by default Steam only uses the European dialect in most games (albeit some games like Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided uses the Mexican dialect exclusively) and including one dialect but excluding the other could had caused a potential Flame War between Mexican, Latin American and Spaniard players.
- Schedule Slip: Announced on the 2013 Xbox One reveal, was planned for 2015 and then delayed to April 5, 2016.
- What Could Have Been:
- According to Sam Lake, as per Remedy tradition, a new Poets of the Fall song "The Labyrinth" was to be included in-game, but shared contractual red tape held up the deal until time ran out.
- Nick Marsters' actor was originally going to play as Jack Joyce himself, before Shawn Ashmore was cast instead.
