Remedy has defended releasing the next Alan Wake game as an XBLA title than at retail, saying it’ll be “structured” as if it was released on disc.

The developer lept to the game’s defence as a digital download following confirmation last night it would be unveiled at the Spike VGAs on December 10.

But despite the XBLA release, fans”shouldn’t feel disheartened that it’s coming” to the service, according to ADM, aka Remedy community boss Peter Papadopoulos, on the dev’s forums (via Eurogamer).

“It’s structured like a full release complete with a pretty damn impressive storyline that expands the originals in some interesting ways,” he said.

“I really enjoyed it so I’m sure you all will too!”

Studio CEO Markus Maki chimed in by adding: “‘Don’t you give you value for money…’ Heh. Oh, ye of little faith.”

This morning, it was rumoured that the new game’s subtitle would be Night Springs. We’re still to hear back from Remedy about that, but we’ll let you know what the sitch’ is if we do.
