New Alan Wake an XBL game, “structured like a full release”

The next Alan Wake game, due to get an official reveal at the VGAs next month, is a downloadable Xbox Live title.

The confirmation comes from Xbox’s Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb who’s taken the mini-reveal to Twitter: “We can confirm that this new Alan Wake game will be a fully standalone experience and released on Xbox LIVE.”

Oskari Häkkinen, head of franchise development at developer Remedy has previously said that the next installment in the series “will not be Alan Wake 2,” leading us to believe it won’t be a 10-hour romp. Still, it’ll be “structured like a full release,” a community manager has said on the game’s official forums, “complete with a pretty damn impressive storyline that expands the originals in some interesting ways.”
