PC Version Of Alan Wake Is Up To Microsoft

Illustration for article titled PC Version Of Alan Wake Is Up To Microsoft

Alan Wake is coming to Xbox 360, that we know. But will it also be coming to the PC? Maybe. Just maybe. But if it does, that's a decision to be made by Microsoft, not developers Remedy.

Alan Wake fansite BrightFalls claims to have received a statement from the developers, which reads:

Thank you for your continued interest in Alan Wake. It is accurate that we are currently working exclusively on the Xbox360 version of Alan Wake. PC plans are currently open, and therefore it's safe to say that at least a simultaneous launch with the Xbox version will not happen at this late stage. Remedy has a deep heritage in PC gaming and would love to see a PC version available to its PC followers, ultimately however this decision lies with our publisher.

If this statement did indeed come from Remedy - and we're looking into that - it's not good news for PC users looking forward to the game, as it suggests that even if the game does grace the system, it'll be late.

Then again, after Halo and Gears of War, PC users are getting used to this kind of treatment from Microsoft.

It's true – Remedy comments on No PC version rumors. [BrightFalls]

Survival Horror and PC don't mix well, anyways.

Sure, it happens, sure, you can get your Silent Hill 1-3 fix on the computer. And yes, I know of the awesomeness that is modding via our friend Duke Nukem in Resident Evil 4 (look it up, if you didn't know about it).

But it just doesnt, and never has, felt right. Its like playing C&C on the Xbox.

The only people this sucks for is people who don't own a 360 (and yet are somehow eager to play a Microsoft branded game on a Microsoft branded Operating System).

But I'd say the same thing for anyone weeping over not getting Heavy Rain and Siren on the PC. Go get a Playstation/Xbox for your third person horror games.
