Remedy’s confirmed it will be the publisher of Alan Wake for PC when it launches on Steam early next year.

The confirmations comes after confusion reigned on if the Finnish studio or Microsoft would be doing publishing duties, with the latter releasing the 360 version in May 2010, as well as publishing the upcoming American Nightmare for Xbox Live Arcade.

But In the first of two confirmations, Remedy community manager Peter Papadopoulos said on its forums: “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.”

Further information came from MikkiRMD, aka Remedy writer Mikko Rautalahti, who also noted the concern of PC gamers following the initial cancelation in February 2010.

“I can genuinely appreciate that people were frustrated — and it was frustrating for us as well, because it was out of our hands at the time. These things can get pretty complicated.”

It was confirmed yesterday it would use Steamworks, not GFWL, as its platform.
