Following the X10 Festival, which was held yesterday in San Fransisco, Microsoft has confirmed that it will not release the psychological action/thriller Alan Wake for the PC. Explaining the action, Microsoft stated the following:
“Some games are more suited for the intimacy of the PC, and others are best played from the couch in front of a larger TV screen. We ultimately realised that the most compelling way to experience “Alan Wake” was on the Xbox 360 platform, so we focused on making it an Xbox 360 exclusive. Both Microsoft and Remedy have long histories in PC game development. This decision was about matching this specific game to the right platform.”
The game will be released on the Xbox 360 on May 18th 2010 in the United States and on May 21st in Europe.
