Alpha Protocol was first delisted from Xbox 360 in April of 2018 according to reporting from It was next removed from sale on Steam on June 19th, 2019 when its price was set to $0.00. When reached for comment by USGamer, a Sega spokesperson responded that “following the expiry of Sega’s publishing rights for Alpha Protocol, the title has been removed from Steam and is no longer on sale”. Sega confirmed shortly after that the publishing rights in question specifically related to the licensed song ‘Turn up the Radio‘ by Autograph which appears in the game’s finale.

On March 20th, 2024 announced that Alpha Protocol was now available exclusively on their platform. After nearly two years of negotiations and development work the game was released with modern compatibility improvements and even the offending licensed song in place. The game later returned to Steam on June 27th, 2024, with the licensed song intact but without GOG’s compatibility updates.

About the Game

To do so means he must cut himself off from the very people he is sworn to protect. As players determine how to accomplish different objectives, the decisions made and actions taken in each mission will ultimately transform the type of secret agent Michael Thorton will become. Every choice the player makes as Michael Thorton will carry consequences for his future and the fate of the world.
