Alan Wake: Long-Awaited PC Port Scores Great Sales
Alan Wake’s PC port has been much-awaited. For a time, it was just delayed as many other video games, and then it was cancelled. Then, it was on again and now finally launched. Now it looks like Remedy Entertainment has made the right decision to proceed with the PC port.
Remedy’s Executive VP, Aki Järvilehto, said that the PC version of Alan Wake has always been craved by both its developer and its fans. Finally, the game launches after what felt like a long time after the original. The development team is feeling especially emotional now that the Alan Wake PC version is receiving a lot of positive reactions from fans. Remedy’s emotional reaction to the success of its game is partly due to the fact that the developer considers its games as its “children”, with Alan Wake being a long-lost one. It also helps that the PC version of Alan Wake is also doing well. The game peaks at 2,012 concurrent players on Steam. This stat is about the same as those for Dead Island, Deus Ex – HR and Portal 2. So, the game is doing well even it is not really a completely new game, having been formerly released as an Xbox 360 exclusive.
This is good news for Remedy. Well, it looks like it. Joystiq made things clearer by reporting that Remedy was able to get back the money it used for development and marketing in just a couple of days. PC gamers have been hoping to get their hands on the Alan Wake game because of the game’s interesting premise. Now, PC gamers can participate in the suspenseful virtual world. They would want to explore the original before trying out the spinoff, otherwise known as the non-sequel, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare. Have you tried the Alan Wake PC version yet?
