Following earlier rumours, Finnish developer Remedy has confirmed at a London press conference that Alan Wake will be released for PC in Q1 2012.

The PC version of the game will come with both DLC packs - The Signal and The Writer - included as standard. It will also be released on Steam.

The older amongst you might remember the first time Alan Wake was announced for PC was in 2006, before it was later re-revealed as a then-exclusive to the Xbox 360. awarded the game a 9/10 in its Alan Wake review, calling it "a stunning action game, a superbly scripted adventure and a technical showcase for the now-ageing Xbox 360 hardware."

Alan Wake's next episodic adventure - Alan Wake's American Nightmares - launches in 2012. Will this also see a PC release?

I just think it should've happened sooner. Just seems a little too late to me.

It would be nice if they brought Alan Wake to the PS3. I would love to play this game, but I don't own a 360, and I'm not a PC gamer. So I guess I'm out of luck.

Well I assume if remedy want to continue the alan wake franchise they need more sales as it didn't perform great on 360, so by giving it a run on pc they can potentially drum up more interest in sequel.

Not to be mean but who cares? Now if we were talking PS3 instead of PC then it would've been more interesting. Not only that but almost 3 years after and now it's released on PC? Why even bother?
