Microsoft cheerleader and podcaster, Major Nelson, yesterday confirmed that Alan Wake’s next outing would be a downloadable affair. Following on from the news that the game would be revealed during the two hour exclusive trailer reel that is the VGA awards, the Major tweeted:
We can confirm that this new “Alan Wake” game will be a fully standalone experience and released on Xbox LIVE.
Obviously, Remedy are keeping their lips sealed until the exclusive deal with the VGAs sees the trailer come to light but there has been some speculation about the title. It was rumoured, earlier this year, that it would be called Alan Wake: Night Springs and today a site called XBLAFans is claiming to have the startup menu screen, photographed off-screen (below).
It’s all suitably mysterious. If by “mysterious” you mean “sold to an awards show of questioned integrity but leaking anyway”.
