Microsoft slipped us word this morning that Alan Wake's European release date has been changed. Thing is, it's been changed for the better.

The game was originally due for release towards the end of the week of May 20, but for some reason, it's now been pushed up to Friday, May 14. A whole week early!

It won't change the world, sure, but it's always nice to see a game slide on up.

Alan Wake will be out in the US on May 18.
