Remedy recoups Wake PC expenses in 48 hours

"We made it a priority to create the best PC version of the game we possibly could" says CEO

Remedy's PC version of Alan Wake has recouped both its marketing and development spend in just 48 hours.

"We made it a priority to create the best PC version of the game we possibly could, as opposed to a sloppy port we ourselves would hate to play, and judging by the amount of encouragement and positive feedback that has been pouring in, that's really paid off!" said CEO Matias Myllyrinne in a thank you note to the game's fans.

"Rest assured that we are still listening to your requests and will maintain efforts to make necessary updates to the build now that it's been released."

The feature packed version of the Xbox 360 title arrived on Steam on February 16 at just £23, and immediately dominated the sales chart.

"We are very happy with the sales and hitting #1 on Steam at launch was nothing short of amazing," said EVP Aki 'AJ' Järvilehto.

"We recouped our development and marketing expenses during the first 48 hours. And yes, we're certainly very excited about PC."

An Origin version of the game is expected soon.
