Announced way back in 2005, Alan Wake was originally planned for release on
PC and the just announced Xbox 360. By 2010 the game at last hit the 360 to
some fanfare, but PC gamers looking to experience the Stephen King/Twin Peaks
vibe were left out in the cold. Today, after more than a year of silence, the
developer Remedy has finally revealed Wake is coming to the PC early next year.
Rumors were popping up yesterday of an imminent announcement, with Remedy making the
PC plans official this morning.
It makes sense, as Remedy got its start as a PC dev, and it’s nice that the
team could ultimately fulfill the promise of a PC version. The package includes
both DLC episodes that were released on Live, meaning you get the whole A. Wake
experience. The release seems timed to coincide with the launch of the entirely
new the XBLA-exclusive Alan Wake's American Nightmare
that’s also coming in early 2012.
