The PC version of Alan Wake is officially no more.

A spokesperson for Microsoft offered Strategy Informer this statement:

"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."

A question-mark has hung over Alan Wake on PC since Remedy publicly refocused its efforts on the Xbox 360 SKU last July.

That work appears to have paid off, as last night Microsoft announced a 21st May release date for Alan Wake on Xbox 360.
