Remedy answers Alan Wake PC concerns

Gamezine: "Remedy Games has attempted to answer concerns about Alan Wake on the PC, though their response is sure to fuel further speculation.

Yesterday we questioned whether Remedy's psychological action thriller Alan Wake would still be coming to PCs after a lengthy silence over this platform's connection to the game.

Now being published by Microsoft Games Studios, many PC gamers were unsure whether the company would hold back the PC release in order to bolster the Xbox 360's exclusive games offering.

Markus of Remedy Games has responded to concerned gamers."

this game will rock. I downloaded the Video in HD on my xbox earlier on 2day with SplinterCell Conviction's behind the scene trailer 1.

There's no way they canceled the PC version of this.. in that tech video about 8000 years ago, they said the game was specifically built for quad-core tech. Because of this I can understand why they have the full team optimizing the engine for the 360, since it was probably more difficult than usual. But if they actually canceled the PC version I'll be seriously pissed, knowing there's a better version out there that I could have paid $10 less for.

dont worry its impossible for the PC version to be cancelled out of nowhere. Maybe it wont get out at the same time but still it'll be out at a momment.

my guess is they are trying to put as much hype behind the X360 version to get more Sales as possible and when it reaches the desired number of untis sold they'll release the Windows Game version on PC.

Yeah, that seems pretty in-line with how MS has been regarding PC gaming these days. I can deal with a timed exclusive but it'd just piss me off if they only did it for marketing reasons as opposed to taking the extra time to make the PC game look good and polished on all graphics settings.

I dont think the Pc version cancelled . But the game going be awesome.

I doubt it. It's Microsoft. Games for Windows is their platform. I think they want to keep the focus on the console version to encourage console sales. Alan Wake is going to be one of the XBox 360's must have titles. This is what Microsoft does. They keep the focus on the console version of titles and then release the games later on the PC.

They won't cancel it, no. What releasing the PC version can do is bulk out 360 sales for those who really can't wait and also helps both give a reason(above the obvious one)for why the PC versions are sometimes better to look at AND means that, even if the difference is big 360 gamers still had the advantage of first play.

The thinking behind dropping the PC version of Gears2 entirely shocked me though-were they sick of the piracy on PC or what? I know a few people who loved the first game but wouldn't get a 360 for the second as they felt MS were trying to force their hand and as they already game on an MS platform I can ,kkind of see their point esp afer being allowed to play the original.

The console/PC release date thing is very odd at times.

No now the playslaves can't play Alan Wake lol.

So you think everyone who wanted to play this on PC is a PS3 fanboy???

Anyways, I doubt they would cancel the game for PC out of nowhere.

mcgrawgamer3275d ago (Edited 3275d ago )

doubt they canceled the pc version. the pc community was looking forward to this game just as much as the 360 faithful. I know I was. I think it'll be a timed 360 exclusive ala mass effect. If MSFT has canceled the pc version they'll alientate more gamers than they think they'll garner by getting them to get the more expensive and less featured (tech wise) 360 version. I for one won't purchase the game for my 360, when I got a quad core and a 9800gt more than ready to handle the game
