Rememdy has released an updated FAQ on the official forums in regards to Alan Wake on PC.
It has been revealed that the game will arrive in February via Steam, including full integration with the service such as cloud saves and achievements. The game won't require GFWL.
There won't be a demo, but the PC version is promised to be optimized, including fully customizable keyboard and mouse support. The PC version is being developed together with a small team from Remedy as well as a team at Finnish independent developer, Nitro Games. Alan Wake PC is a Remedy self-published title.
The game is still being optimized, but the current system requirements are as follows:

Alan Wake was originally announced as a Windows Vista and DX10 seller, but was later downgraded to being an Xbox 360 exclusive (released in May 2010). The PC version is being released without direct Microsoft support.
