Alan Wake Being Removed From Xbox & Steam Stores Due To Licensing Issues

Remedy Entertainment’s Alan Wake is being pulled from the Xbox & Steam storefronts this coming Monday, May 15, due to expiring music licensing, it’s been announced.

For those looking to pick the game up before it’s too late, Remedy have knocked 90% off on Steam and GOG, and this sale will even include Alan Wake’s American Nightmare – although that particular title will remain after the weekend cull.

Of course, once you own the game it will remain in your library. It will just no longer be offered on store pages.

“The music licenses for Alan Wake are expiring,” said Remedy “As a result, the game is going to be taken out of physical and digital retail. Alan Wake’s American Nightmare will stay in retail.

Remedy are apparently looking to re-license the music for Alan Wake, but there’s no timeframe on if-or-when it may reappear.
