Microsoft says ’No Alan Wake in 2007’Microsoft has dashed any last vestiges of hope fans of Alan Wake may have had for the game's release this year, confirming it's not a 2007 title. Alan Wake is a title that the company wants to nurture and ensure it's "really ready" when it's ushered back into the limelight, managing director of Microsoft Game Studios, Shane Kim, told Game Informer. However, Kim explained that it's a game Microsoft wouldn't be talking about if it were "way out in the future". So 2008 then? Could be. Alan Wake is the latest game from Max Payne developer Remedy Entertainment and is surrounded by plenty of anticipation.
