Right now, it is unclear if these things are Easter eggs alone, or if they actually are meant to imply Alan Wake and Control exist in the same universe.

One of the videos from Dr. Darling mentions a door code being 6-6-5. This is a reference to Max Payne, in which Max jokes about a 6-6-5 door code being “the neighbor of the beast.” (This itself is a reference to 666 being the number of the beast in the Bible.)
While Alan Wake’s in-game band The Old Gods of Asgard exists in Control, you can also read about and listen to a song from Poets of the Fall, the real-life band that portrays them.
There are lyrics, posters, and other references to the band Socks and Ballerinas, a Finnish group.
Hideo Kojima has a cameo role as Dr. Yoshimi Tokui in the side mission “Dr. Yoshimi Tokui’s Guided Imagery Experience.” The interpreter for him in the side mission is voiced by Aki Saito, the Communications Manager of Kojima Productions.
The FBC uses the codename P6 for a certain character. P6 was actually the codename used for Control itself before it was revealed.
