Alan Wake destined for PC

Written by David Stellmack

Only 2 years after the Xbox 360 release

After Microsoft and Remedy canceled the release of Alan Wake for the PC, it would appear that things have taken a bit of a reversal, as Steam users have spotted it in the Steam registry. This confirms comments by Aki Jarvilehto, Executive VP at Remedy, who hinted at a potential PC release to a Finnish web site.

At the time we didn’t think much of the news, as it seemed that Alan Wake on the PC was dead, as the studio concentrated on an exclusive Xbox 360 console-only release. Now, the title is apparently going to be released for the PC which should make PC fans pretty darned happy after all of this waiting.

While no confirmation has yet been made by Remedy or Microsoft, it could likely be on tap to be announced during CES. We suspect that a release date should be announced soon. No word if the next entry in the franchise (called Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, which is to be an Xbox Live release) will also drop for the PC as well at some point; but we suspect that it could happen given the Alan Wake release for PC.

People might have been excited 6 years ago when it was first announced for PC but now? I don't think so.

Better late than never, I really liked this game so I'll spend a couple of bucks to buy it for PC.

If we don't buy'em, they won't make'em.

Fragmentation is killing gaming. There are now six platforms (PC, Linux, Mac, Xbox, PS3, Wii; replace one by iOS if you like) and games are pretty demanding applications. They are not trivial to port and optimising them for a new platform also takes time (both in the performance way and the interface).

So expect more of this sort of thing. Massive delays, ports that never happen, etc.

I had to check the calendar on my desktop and phone and make sure it was 2011 and not 2006. Yeah, unless it gets major updates, meh, don't really care. They can bundle it with Windows Vista Ultimate and call it the retro gaming pack along with an Athlon FX-60 and nVIDIA 8800 GTX...
