Today Remedy announced plans to finally bring their psychological thriller Alan Wake to PC via Steam early next year. The developer will also be including the game’s two pieces of DLC: The Signal and The Writer.

Released in 2010 for the Xbox 360, Alan Wake is a Stephen King-inspired tale about a writer whose wife goes missing in the Pacific Northwest.  The game was announced in 2005 as a PC/Xbox 360 release, but in 2009 Remedy confirmed that they’d limited development to the 360.

Though he couldn’t discuss specifics like release date, Remedy Executive Vice President Aki Järvilehto told Rock Paper Shotgun that the PC version will feature Steamworks and promised that “the experience of running it on a high-end PC, with a ninja set-up, [is] a big difference.”

Remedy’s also been prepping another Alan Wake project, the Xbox Live Arcade spin-off Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, which should release right around the PC version of the original. They’ve yet to confirm whether or not American Nightmare will make its way to the PC as well.

    Is there information who will do the translation from Xbox to PC version? This product could really use some PC candy with all those dark and light scenes!

    So how likely is it that a few months after release this is used as an excuse why pc versions aren't worth making?
    A lot of people that cared got it on 360 new, or from a bargain bin/used by now.

    A fun game, but nothing at all on the scale that they promised.

    I'm not going to buy it twice, but it really, REALLY could have used the horsepower of a good PC.

    Thanks for screwing us! I'd have bought it on PC originally if I could have. I had a preorder for this from 2008 (I even have the screenshot from Amazon).
