PC Alan Wake Breaks Even

A post on the Alan Wake Community Forums from Remedy announces that their decision to belatedly bring Alan Wake to the PC has resulted in the game hitting #1 on Steam and making back their investment in porting the psychological thriller to Windows (thanks Eurogamer).

I wanted to chime in here. We are very happy with the sales and hitting #1 on Steam at launch was nothing short of amazing. We recouped our development and marketing expenses during the first 48 hours. And yes, we're certainly very excited about PC.

Well that's kinda what I was getting at, I honestly don't know. I'm just not convinced that refusing to buy it would 'show them', just reinforce that the PC isn't worth spending time on.

It's a tough call, I agree. But I can easily see people saying "hey, fuck you, Remedy, with your old shit!" and it's hard to tell them they shouldn't do it.

To be honest, I think Remedy made the decision that the PC wasn't worth spending time on a long time ago, and nothing short of it selling 35 million copies will make them change their minds.
