A peek through the downloadable content menu in Alan Wake reveals a listing for the game's second, as yet unannounced episode, "The Writer."


"Our second downloadable content pack, 'The Writer,' finds Wake in strange circumstances; now fully aware of the thing that opposes him, he must survive one increasingly nightmarish situation after another."

The chapter will cost 800 Microsoft points. It says "67 days left" but that would peg this DLC's release to July 27, which is when the first episode, "The Signal" is known to release.

Owen: The menu option for "The Signal" is the one that says "67 days left". The box for "The Writer" just says "coming soon".

Speaking of which, I just got my copy this morning after finding it on sale for 20 bucks off on Amazon. Interesting game, great use of lighting. Not particularly scary per se, but definitely some of the best graphics available on the 360 at the moment.
