In Major Nelson’s most recent podcast, Director of Product Management for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live Aaron Greenberg confirmed that Alan Wake and Crackdown 2 are coming in 2010 to the Xbox 360. However, they are coming in the first half of the year. This is much earlier than expected as most were predicting a holiday 2010 release.
Starting in January we have like a AAA exclusive title pretty much every month for the first half of the year. You’ve got Mass Effect 2, you’ve got Splinter Cell, you’ve got Alan Wake, you’ve got Crackdown 2.
That quote, and discussion of the 2010 exclusive portfolio comes in around the 31:30 mark. Mr. Greenberg also claims that 2010 will be bigger than 2009.
Just give me Mass Effect 2 all ready. Gimmie! Gimmie! Gimmie!
