The first Alan Wake is about to finally get its PC release, according to listings on the Steam registry and further teasing from Remedy.

Files for specific language versions of the game – including English, German, French, Japanese, Chinese and Spanish – plus other files all appeared on the registry (via GAF).

Remedy’s Aki Järvilehto recently teased a PC release in a interview with Finnish-based YLEX (via JPS).

“We have received feedback from a lot of PC gamers, and I have to admit that yes, we somehow ignored that. Let’s see if in the near future we could have some positive news to tell you about dating.”

Remedy was originally developing Alan Wake for PC and Xbox 360 together, but the PC version was canned at X10 last February.

“Hypothetically, what we care about is the Remedy brand on any game needs to stand for something… polished quality, cinematic action and great storytelling,” Remedy boss Matias Myllyrinne told VG247 in a post-launch interview on Wake 1 last year.

“If it is created by us or a port it still needs to live up to the same standard. People need to be able to rely on it when they put down their hard earned money.”

The news follows the unveil of the next title in the Wake universe, American Nightmare for XBLA, at the VGAs over the weekend. That’ll launch in Q1 next year, meaning sometime before March 31.
