Xbox 360 Classic Alan Wake Is Ten Years Old Today

The initial release of Remedy Entertainment's Alan Wake arrived on the Xbox 360 ten years ago today, launching back on May 14, 2010. The game was well-received from both critics and fans alike, and later received another standalone title in the form of Alan Wake's American Nightmare.

The original game was an Xbox 360 exclusive before transitioning to PC in 2012, and focuses around best-selling writer Alan Wake and his search for his missing wife. Remedy itself describes Alan Wake as "the body of an action game and the mind of a psychological thriller.

Plans for an Alan Wake 2 were put together some years ago before the project was ultimately cancelled (thanks VG247), with Remedy going on to develop Quantum Break and Control in recent years. Fortunately, you can still enjoy the original game with backwards compatibility on Xbox One!
