Alan Wake PC Release 'Up in the Air'

Remember when Max Payne creator Remedy suggested that its "psychological action thriller" Alan Wake could hit Xbox 360 first and the promised PC edition would follow? Well, it now appears that a PC release of the game isn't a question of when, but if.

"Other than [the Xbox 360 version] the plans are up in the air and open," lead writer Sam Lake told Edge. When asked if the game was still coming to PC, he said that "once we're done with the 360 version we'll evaluate the situation and see what makes sense."

Originally announced for the PC and "next generation consoles" in 2005, Alan Wake was later confirmed for Xbox 360 and PC when Microsoft signed on to publish in 2006, with the company recently specifying a "spring 2010" release for the Xbox 360 edition.

      Same, I supported this game and stood up for it because I knew Remedy would deliver. And all they do is slap us back for all that we did for them. If it wasn't for us on the pc, Remedy wouldn't be where they are today

        After id stepped away from PC, I don't have faith in anything PC anymore, outside of Blizzard. It's probably just a matter of time before their next HUGE release is console only as well.

      *sigh*... yeah, now I'm just really excited anymore. Maybe I'll get it if it's extremely good on the 360, but I really would've preferred this on the PC.
