Sorry, PC gamers. Remedy Games’ atmospheric thriller Alan Wake will not be released for the mouse and keyboard crowd. The game is now officially an Xbox 360 exclusive.
A Microsoft spokesperson broke the news to Strategy Informer, saying, "We ultimately realized that the most compelling way to experience Alan Wake was on the Xbox 360 platform, so we focused on making it an Xbox 360 exclusive…This decision was about matching this specific game to the right platform."
Remedy said back in July that while they were focusing their development efforts on the 360 version, they were still open to the idea of bringing it to the PC as well. However, the decision to pursue a PC version was ultimately up to Microsoft, and apparently, Microsoft won out. So come May 18, if you want to solve the dark and deadly mysteries of Alan Wake, it’s Xbox 360 or nothing.
Thoughts, PC gamers?
