Updated / Alan Wake release date changes, gets new video

Update: The game’s now gone gold, too, managing director Matias Myllyrinne tweets.

Original story: After what’s seemed like several years worth of delays, Microsoft has delivered some surprising news about one of their upcoming exclusives today; Alan Wake‘s European release date has been pushed forward.

Previously slated for a May 21 release in the region, the psychological action thriller is now slated to hit shelves a full week earlier, on May 14.

The North American release date remains May 18.

The game will be released for the Xbox 360 only, though never say never.

Developer Remedy has released a four-minute-long behind the scenes video for the game today as well. Catch that below.
