Alan Wake is Back on Steam

Alan Wake has returned to online storefronts after resolving big licensing issue that forced the game to suspend sales.

Developer Remedy Entertainment’s critically acclaimed action-adventure title Alan Wake from 2010 has become a topic of discussion long after the announcement of a live-action TV series based on the game was made back in last month.

Earlier the game was removed from all available online marketplaces because of a licensing issue and after an absence for more than a year now, it is back again on popular digital storefronts like GOG.com, Humble Store and Steam.

In May 2017, the developers faced a problem with the usage of licensed music rights that needed renegotiating and until they could, the game couldn't be on sale. So, before taking the game down, they offered a 90% discount for the title on Steam.

It was really an unfortunate event for the psycho-thriller adventure from Remedy; however they never had to take down the standalone spin-off game Alan Wake's American Nightmare from the digital shelf because of those music rights again.

In a recent Tweet, Remedy Entertainment has confirmed the news and thanked their publisher Microsoft Studios to reach out for solving this problem.

If you have never played this atmospheric adventure-horror title before or even missed that super-sale a year ago, then you should give it a try now that it is back and on top of that, Alan Wake is heavily discounted again for the occasion of Halloween.

While the original game is currently on sale for only $1.40 on Steam, you can also own the Collector's Edition for the best price of $1.64 only before November 1. If you are looking for the Xbox 360 version, then it would be a bummer to tell you that the game is still not available on Xbox Marketplace yet.
