New Alan Wake Title Hasn’t Been Given The Go-Ahead From Microsoft

Microsoft Studios head Phil Spencer has confirmed to Joystiq that Remedy’s new Alan Wake game hasn’t been approved by the software giant.

“I don’t know that they’ve signed it with anybody,” he said.

The developer announced Alan Wake: Night Springs last month, and we all simply thought Microsoft was funding the project. Turns out that’s not the case.

“I’d love to work with Remedy again,” he added. “We have ongoing conversations with them. I think the stuff they’re doing now they wanted to incubate, Mattias [Myllyrinne, Remedy boss] and the team. They wanted to incubate internally. Like I said, I don’t think they’ve signed it with anybody.”

Alan Wake might come to PS3 after all, but don’t get your hopes up too high; MS is known for cutting great deals. Enticing ones.

    im pretty sure M$ owns the AW IP, so if there going to the ps3 it will have to be a new IP.
    M$ should buy them out, there a fantastic studio and would be a perfect way to prove they still care about the core market!
    which is seriously hard to believe when they announced today that eventually every first party game will have kinect support.
    why would you do that, if your still focused to your core crowd?
    sigh.
    looks like M$ are going to have to go bankrupt till they learn there fans dont want this kiddy crap!
