Remedy focusing on Alan Wake 360

PC uncertain. Plus, demo "unlikely".

Remedy has said that Alan Wake on Xbox 360 is its top priority and the PC version may have to wait.

"Unfortunately all I can say at this point is that we're focusing all our efforts on the 360 version and will be making comments in regards to the PC at a later time," writes MarkusRMD - presumably Markus Maki, head of development - on the Alan Wake forum.

Microsoft gave Alan Wake a spring 2010 date after demonstrating it on-stage during its E3 conference.

And you may have to wait until launch to play it yourself. "A demo has been discussed a few times but I would deem it unlikely at this point," MarkusRMD posted in another thread.

"It's a big business and production scheduling decision, demos of games like Alan Wake are not something you can throw together quickly as shorty pointed out above.

"Then there are technical sides like the world structure (one large world) making it a bit challenging to make a small download," he adds. "Again, not impossible but quite a lot of work."
