Microsoft’s confirmed to VG247 that Alan Wake for PC has been canned.

Earlier, Strategy Informer reported the company canceled the Remedy thriller for the platform

The statement given to the site said:

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.

Microsoft’s just confirmed to us that is indeed the case.

The game got confirmed for a release on 360 last night at X10. It’ll release in the US on May 18 and May 21 in the UK.

New trailer and screens are here and here.
