Quick Response Codes (or QR Codes for short ) are a type of matrix barcode that can be scanned with a compatible device and will act as an image link to some other form of content which have been featured in Alan Wake. While QR codes were not present in the Xbox 360 edition of the original game, Remedy Entertainment added them to the PC version as Easter eggs.

In Alan Wake Remastered, the previous QR codes were updated with new ones that link to unlisted videos on the official Remedy Entertainment YouTube channel. Each video features a looping scene of Alan Wake using a typewriter in a dark room (a shortened version of the loop used for Alan Wake's Hotline Collectibles in the AWE DLC for Control) which serve as teasers for Alan Wake 2.
