Alan Wake PC delay hinted at by Remedy
Development director for long-in-the-making action adventure states all efforts focused on the 360 edition's spring 2010 release.
Remedy Entertainment's Alan Wake has taken on a quasi-mythical reputation, due as much to the shroud of mystery Microsoft has cloaked the game in as anything its developer has done. With Alan Wake first announced for the Xbox 360 and PC in 2005, Microsoft kept the game largely under lock and key until just last month, when Remedy trotted it out as a centerpiece to the publisher's Electronic Entertainment Expo press conference.
As part of its E3 showing, Microsoft said that Alan Wake is expected to make its long-anticipated debut in spring 2010. And while the Finnish studio appears to be entering the final stretch with the Xbox 360 edition of the game--relatively speaking, of course--the PC edition may be in for yet more indeterminate lag.
In a post to Alan Wake's official message boards this week, Remedy development director Markus Maki stated that the studio is completely focused on the Xbox 360 edition of the game, to the apparent detriment of the PC version.
"I'm a PC gamer at heart (have a Core i7, Radeon 4890, 5.1 audio setup at home) so I do appreciate your concerns," Maki stated. "Unfortunately all I can say at this point is that 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."
