The last we heard of Alan Wake were rumors of a standalone spin-off project based on the in-game “Twilight Zone” homage heading to Xbox Live Arcade. Xbox’s Major Nelson confirmed 2/3rds of that rumor in a recent Twitter message, stating, “We can confirm that this new ‘Alan Wake‘ game will be a fully standalone experience and released on Xbox LIVE.”
Since then, Remedy’s Community Manager Peter Papadopoulos confirmed Nelson’s statement, teasing the game’s first screenshot for this coming Monday and the game’s official reveal at the 2011 Spike Video Game Awards. With the “ceremony” just over a month away, we won’t have to wait long for the news of the next nightmare from our favorite insomniac writer with a (ghost) killer flashlight.
