Alan Wake Hitting Xbox 360 First, PC Later?

By Chris Faylor, Jul 07, 2009 8:37am PDT It's beginning to look as if Remedy's long-awaited "psychological action thriller" Alan Wake will debut first on Xbox 360 and the promised PC edition will follow at a later date.

"We're focusing all our efforts on the 360 version and will be making comments in regards to the PC at a later in time," Remedy rep Markus wrote on the studio's boards.

Publisher Microsoft revealed a "spring 2010" release for the Xbox 360 edition during E3, but made no mention of the PC version at that time. Alan Wake was originally announced for PC and console in 2005, though an "official" release window was not provided until recently. We're checking in with Microsoft for more details, and will update accordingly.

  • Well I do not care anymore if games hit the PC before the Xbox (Hey guys it doesn't matter...we all like games) or any console as long as they do. Now a days the games come out on a console and if they payoff maybe a port or the actual PC version gets released/finished. And if they are released they are old and new games already on the launch pad. But if the (console)success is not as expected the games somehow get lost or canceled.

    I realy hope that Alan will be aWAKE, ok cheap joke ;-), till a PC release. I also can remember that during a technical presentation some Remedy guy talked about how cool the new Intel multicore processors can be used to simulate the effect. Damn I got one of those and want to see it myself.
