Remedy has confirmed that it will be self-publishing Alan Wake on the PC. This news is a surprise because Microsoft had published Alan Wake on the Xbox 360 in 2009. It was originally thought that they had changed their stance wrt PC gaming, but that is not the case.
Remedy’s next game, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare will be published on XBLA by Microsoft.
“Microsoft is still the publisher of Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, which is being released on XBLA in early 2012. As for Alan Wake PC, it’s a Remedy self published title which is coming to Steam, also being released early in 2012,” said Remedy community manager Peter Papadopoulos.
The game will support Steamworks and not GFWL, which should be a relief to many except me.
