 Alan Wake  PC recoups costs in 2 days
Alan Wake PC recoups costs in 2 days
February 20, 2012 | By Mike Rose




The PC version of Remedy's Alan Wake, released last week, managed to recoup its development and marketing expenses during the first 48 hours on sale.

The game was released for PC on February 16, nearly two years after it originally launched on Xbox 360. At the time of the Xbox 360 launch, Remedy said that it was not planning a PC version, as Xbox was "the right platform" for the game.

The company's EVP Aki Jarvilehto has now revealed that the PC version has sold very well. While he did not provide exact sales figures, he said in a forum post that both development and marketing expenses have already been accounted for.

He added, "We are very happy with the sales and hitting number one on Steam at launch was nothing short of amazing."

A downloadable spin-off title for the series, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, is also due to be released via Xbox Live Arcade later this week.
