Why No Alan Wake On PC?

Supernatural thriller Alan Wake is being released on the Xbox 360, but once upon a time, it was also a PC game. That PC version is no more. Why? Well, the two teams responsible can't seem to agree.

Last month, publishers Microsoft released a statement saying the game was only coming to the 360 because "the most compelling way to experience 'Alan Wake' was on the Xbox 360 platform". Seemed like an iffy explanation, especially now that developers Remedy have said something completely different.

"We're a small studio, about 50 people", Remedy's Oskari Häkkinen told Digital Spy a few weeks ago. "Concentrating on one platform is just a lot easier for us where we're smaller than other studios, and its just been focused, focusing on one platform and getting that done. We have no plans for PC right now."

Poor PC, the least it deserves is a straight answer.

On the bright side, is that a "no plans" I see? It is! And we all know, wherever there are "no plans", there's always hope.
