Yeah it had something to do with the now defunct MS television studio thing that was going on. It wasn't like MS made them do it but I think there were disagreements on how it was to be done, honestly it never made much sense to do it anyway from a gaming perspective.I don't think so. Sam lake and Remedy have always been incorporating extended live action bits in their games. I always suspected they had an interest in doing film.
That said, I dont doubt MS thought it would be a good fit for their future services platform at the time, and encouraged the approach they took. A tv show for Alan Wake fits right in with their philosophy.
