Confirmation of a new Alan Wake game for Xbox Live Arcade hasn't gone down well with some fans, despite the fact major details of the project have yet to be officially announced.
Responding to some fans' disappointment that the title isn't set to be a full retail release, Remedy has defended the game and asked for players to wait for more information before casting judgment.
"You're assuming a lot by the platform it is on," said Remedy's community manager. "All I can say is wait for the official announcement before making up your mind.
"We'll have an official announcement up in a moment but let me clarify that you guys shouldn't feel disheartened that it's coming to XBLA.
"It's structured like a full release complete with a pretty damn impressive storyline that expands the originals in some interesting ways," he added. "I really enjoyed it so I'm sure you all will too!"
Remedy CEO Markus Mäki also responded to a fans' suggestion that the title won't offer value for money. "'Don't you give you value for money," he said. "Heh. Oh, ye of little faith."
