Alan Wake PC Rests on MicroSoft’s Shoulders

UntitledA few months ago it was announced that the long delayed Alan Wake would only be coming to consoles. Fans of Remedy, whose games like Max Payne had always started on the PC were pretty annoyed and forums started heating up.

In a recent statement though the developer said that they would “love to see a PC version” and that “plans are open” but it apparently falls to MicroSoft to make the decision. Which mean it may not be coming for a little while since MS likes to give it’s 360 some time to grab a few dollars before releasing games in the piracy-prone PC.

In any case we’ll see how it develops and how the console version feels when it finally comes out.

Here’s the full statement:

“It is accurate that we are currently working exclusively on the Xbox 360 version of Alan Wake,” the statement reads. “PC plans are currently open, and therefore it’s safe to say that at least a simultaneous launch with the Xbox version will not happen at this late stage. Remedy has a deep heritage in PC gaming and would love to see a PC version available to its PC followers, ultimately however this decision lies with our publisher.”
