Enhanced Performance

Considering other games, Evil Within 2 needs to offer a more optimized experience rather running at a same mediocre level on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.

Coherent, Grounded Story

Although the Evil Within had a good story, however, it would be amazing if the sequel was less ambitious with the story and offered less on a plot twist that would derail player from the game rather than add to it. It was fine however didn’t make much sense. Hopefully, it could be remedied in the upcoming installment.
