Alan Wake disappears from Steam and Xbox on May 16th

“The music licenses for Alan Wake are expiring. 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’re having a 90% off “Sunset Sale” for Alan Wake on Steam May 13th through the 15th, 2017.”

The unfortunate but appreciably straight-to-the-point post appeared today on Remedy’s Alan Wake forum. The music licensing for the original Alan Wake is expiring and since Remedy didn’t negotiate the original license they have no immediate way to renew. As a result, the original Alan Wake and its DLC will be removed from sale on Steam and Xbox platforms on Tuesday, May 16th. Though not clarified by Remedy this will presumably see the game delisted from GOG.com as well.

In a post by Polygon, Remedy’s head of communications, Thomas Puha, added that “Microsoft and Remedy are looking into renegotiating the music licenses, but there’s nothing more to comment on that for now. Obviously having to remove the game from stores is rather unfortunate. So, we figured, let’s discount the game heavily and those who have not bought Alan Wake yet, here’s your chance to grab it on Steam.”

The original forum post lays out a few more details on the sale and confirms that the digital-only pseudo-sequel, Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, isn’t going away… yet. The original Alan Wake is also available on disc for Xbox 360 and download codes continue to be sold on Amazon.

Just polishing up some things, trying out some fresh layouts, and I needed a test post for the News category.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been compiling the details for 20 delisted Irem games. Their 2011-2012 sweep was intense. All of the game pages are still placeholders but they each contain the full story and breakdown of the titles involved. Check it out, it’s quite the epic delisting.

You may also notice that a Google ad has appeared on the sidebar to your right. I’m sure it’s a blinking jumble advertising “Free Minecraft” or featuring a chainmail lady butt. Whether you click it or not I get some percentage of a penny so if you don’t mind, would you consider whitelisting DelistedGames.com in your ad blocker? It’s the only ad I’m going to place on the site and since the Patreon failed to take off it’s all the income I’ve got going from this mad endeavor.

Thanks for continuing to visit the site and for your submissions and comments.
