Alan Wake have been available to the PC crowd since last month, and here’s Finnish developer Remedy Entertainment boasting that sales for its psychological thriller have succeeded the two million mark. Of course, that is the sum of both released versions – Xbox 360 and PC.

Oskari Häkkinen is apparently pleased in what it seems Alan Wake’s current gritty presence in the industry, going all the way to call the IP as a “cult classic.” Rather bold words indeed but Alan Wake proved being an engaging experience and frankly, it shouldn’t be overlooked as it does have the potential of spawning an iconic franchise.

“We’ve moved over two million copies – that’s including PC,” Häkkinen told CVG. “So after a slow start it’s turning into something really positive. It’s definitely had legs. I think narrative experiences just have a tendency for that.”

Can we say the PC version helped save the game? Regardless of that, the Max Payne team assured last month that they’re not done with Alan Wake, hinting at the possibility of a sequel to the original game.


Other than his excessively biased enthusiasm toward gaming, and technology behind the whole industry, there's a huge fondness inside that drives him nuts to pick up his keyboard and start writing for the love of it.
