Alan Wake Release Date Confirmed

The official release date of Alan Wake for Xbox360 is:

May 18, 2010 for the US

Update: Europe will get the game already a few days earlier, May 14.

Remedy's latest information points to Japan being 05/27.


Note: If you see retailers selling it for PC, or for PS3 (as I saw in one ad recently), that is false information. At the moment there are unfortunately no plans for releasing on other platforms than Xbox360.

And if you haven't seen it yet check out the latest trailer at

This is followed very closely by Europe, Japan and rest of the world.

That is all up to Microsoft's logistics chain. I think everybody tries to get as close as possible to the same day.

It's also good to note that Europe often has 1 or 2 more stages in the distribution chain than US. US it's pretty much Factory>Store. In Europe it's often Factory>Large Distributor>Regional office of the distributor>Store.

The trailer: in-game Alan or is he cinematically rendered here? He looks slightly/quite different compared to the previous footage. In one shot he nearly resembles Ethan Mars from Heavy Rain

I wonder if this is the place to discuss the contents of the different releases.. Theres some talk about pre-order bonuses here http://www.destructoid.com/x10-alan-...s-163362.phtml

Is there any official info about pre-ordering and the collectors edition?

edit: oh never mind.. http://forum.alanwake.com/showthread.php?t=2944
It's all happening too fast!

We just got an amazing trailer, a collectors edition and a release date. That's enough to keep me satisfied for a while

... 5 years. Back then I was expecting a GTA-like sandbox game with Max Payne gameplay. Jeez, times change.

You sure are right, things have changed.

But I'm happy, today I was like crazy looking for A WAKE information, and now we got this, I just want to pre order it

Re: Alan Wake Release Date Confirmed

I find it ironic that I'm living in one of Finland's neighbor countries, yet the Americans are getting their hands on this game before us!

These are exciting times though. I have anticipated this game for some years now, and it pleases me to see that we are drawing ever nearer to the release. Go Remedy!

Don't worry- I might not even be able to pick up the game until August... 'scuse me while I cry of joy and sorrow at the same time.

Same here...

Microsoft's buildings are at USA, so that's why they're having their hands on it first...

It also looks like Wake will have a little Competition on May 18th....in Lost Planet 2. If I end up having to choose....well, Alan by TKO in the first 10seconds of the first round. lol

This is good mostly because those are two big name games which means there is a 99% chance there will be a midnight release.

Thank you guys and gals at Remedy and MS. More than five years in the making--Though I may have to wait til 2011 to pick up the Game-of-the-year edition of Mr. Wake's adventures as I'd like the complete series all in one box/disk set.

Well there's always that. But I mean like regular developer diary's that devs release before the game is launched. Just devs releasing videos that tell different aspects of the game like art, story, graphics, multiplayer, etc.....
