Shacknews readers have been clamoring for Alan Wake's PC debut, since the Remedy-developed title was first announced in 2005 for both "the next generation of consoles" and PC. Eventually, Microsoft signed on as publisher for the "psychological action thriller," putting a PC release in jeopardy in favor of launching the console version first. While Remedy noted it wanted to bring Alan Wake to PC as originally intended, representative's for the developer admitted that the final decision was Microsoft's to make. The PC version was officially labeled dead in February 2010. Though a specific release was not named, Remedy did note the game is launching within the same window as Alan Wake's American Nightmare--the downloadable, continuing adventures of the titular character. Alan Wake's American Nightmare is still labeled as Xbox Live Arcade exclusive.
