After Microsoft and Remedy canceled the release of Alan Wake for the PC, it would appear that things have taken a bit of a reversal, as Steam users have spotted it in the Steam registry. This confirms comments by Aki Jarvilehto, Executive VP at Remedy, who hinted at a potential PC release to a Finnish web site.
At the time we didn’t think much of the news, as it seemed that Alan Wake on the PC was dead, as the studio concentrated on an exclusive Xbox 360 console-only release. Now, the title is apparently going to be released for the PC which should make PC fans pretty darned happy after all of this waiting.
While no confirmation has yet been made by Remedy or Microsoft, it could likely be on tap to be announced during CES. We suspect that a release date should be announced soon. No word if the next entry in the franchise (called Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, which is to be an Xbox Live release) will also drop for the PC as well at some point; but we suspect that it could happen given the Alan Wake release for PC.
