Alan Wake 'done' - Report

Remedy managing director says long-awaited Xbox 360 game is finished, undergoing polish in advance of release next year.


Finnish studio Remedy Entertainment first debuted Alan Wake at E3 2005. Now, more than four years later, the dark survival horror game is finally "done"--in a manner of speaking.

Joystiq is reporting that Remedy managing director Matias Myllyrinne told the gaming blog after a GDC Europe presentation today that the game is "all done." However, "all done" is not the same as "gone gold," as Myllyrinne added, "We're just polishing at this point."

Alan Wake is currently expected to launch for the Xbox 360 next spring. A PC edition had originally been planned for release alongside the console version, but Remedy recently acknowledged that a simultaneous release is no longer planned.

"PC plans are currently open," a representative of the studio said at the time. "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 [Microsoft Game Studios]."
