New release date for Europe!

European Alan Wake fans can now expect to receive Alan Wake on their doorsteps on May 14th!

North America's release date of May 18th and Japan's May 27th have stayed the same.

Maybe because RMD is in Finland and asked MS to release it first at Europe ?

Amazon needs some time with new release dates

On one hand, this is very good of course, but on the other...
I was very excited to play Alan Wake just on the weekend that LOST ended, and furthermore, that weekend would have been 3 days long because of my free saturday, and the holiday on monday.
Now if I can't change my free saturday, my Alan Wake releaseweekend will just be the sunday

Re: New release date for Europe!

What I don't get is why games release on different dates like this. If the game will be finished why not move the US date to the 14th as well...it'll def provide a small boost in sales being removed from that already pretty full release date.

Anyone have any clue why they would do different dates in the different countries? Doesn't make sense to wait 4 days to release it in the US, or wait weeks to do it in UK like so many other games have before if the game is finished.

There is no really press information out. You can send amazon a e-mail, but the news are only 3hours old. Btw. it's a month until the game is out. It'll change believe.

but only for one country. That's what I don't get. If it will be ready earlier...why not move the release date up for everyone? I didn't understand why the europe release date was later than US before either. Doesn't make any sense.

I suppose it's a matter of distribution or manufacturing and not of production. The european version is probably distrubuted and manufactured at different places than the US version.

As Tom Petty once said....the waiting is the hardest part. lol

especially when a bunch of other people will have it earlier. Then again with Piracy and Broken Street Dates I'm pretty used to that ANYWAY.

That's why I'm hoping that all those pirate shitheads out there don't get an early leak.

You can always hope but you know they will. As soon as some backwards ass mom and pop shop gets the game weeks early due to bad shipping ideals(they always break the date, why not send it to them late?) some douche will get it, rip it and it'll be everywhere probably by the 10th at least.

Yeah, I know but I'm an optimist.
That's the great thing about the PS3. They haven't been able to crack it properly so far.

Well, no, Europe is a continent, like America, it's not just one big country. It's not like it's just one puny little country getting the game early, that, I think would be stupid. I mean, if my country, England, got it a week early, that would just be stupid.
And, as people have said before, European release dates are usually later due to a longer delivery process from Publisher - Stores, for various reasons.
