Alan Wake will be taken down from Steam and Xbox store come Monday, May 15. According to a tweet from Remedy Entertainment, the reason behind this is the expiring music license. As an incentive, Remedy has cut the price down by 90% as long as the game is available on store. This applies to the whole Alan Wake franchise too. Although Alan Wake’s America Nightmare will continue to be listed in stores.
“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.
“We are looking into re-licensing the music for Alan Wake, but have no timeframe for this.”
And ofcourse once you own the game, it will remain in your library, ready to be downloaded anytime. It just won’t be listed in the store page anymore.
Alan Wake is a psychological horror action-adventure video game developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Microsoft Studios, released for the Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows. The story follows best-selling thriller novelist Alan Wake, as he tries to uncover the mystery behind his wife’s disappearance during a vacation in the small fictional town of Bright Falls, Washington, all while experiencing events from the plot in his latest novel, which he cannot remember writing, coming to life.
