No Alan Wake. The PC Mourns

In what might come as disappointing to news to Remedy fans, upcoming horror game Alan Wake may now not be emerging from the darkness on the PC at all. In a statement released today, the former Max Payne developers commented that they were working ‘exclusively’ on the 360 version of the title and that any simultaneous release with the 360 would not happen at this stage. Not wishing to leave their PC fanbase completely in the dark, Remedy said that they had a “deep heritage in PC gaming and would love to see a PC version available to its PC followers” but maintained that any decision on the fate of the PC version of the game would lie in the hands of publisher Microsoft Studios. This is all a slightly bitter pill to swallow for many PC gamers, especially for a game that was touted as a major posterboy for quad core processors back in 2006.

Looks like we may have to wait a while to get our being-chased-by-an-evil-JCB fix.

  1. I agree with Greg. This is not good really for several reasons, I think it shows that development on Alan Wake is taking a long time and they still have a lot of hurdles to cross, thus they are cutting down on necessary dev time by focusing singly on one platform.
    Other option? They are just going to wait 6-12 months and release the game late on the PC.
