Alan Wake returns to PC storefronts a year after licensing issues forced its removal
Remedy Entertainment’s cult supernatural horror Alan Wake has finally returned to digital storefronts on PC, a year after it was removed from sale due to licensing concerns.
Alan Wake’s imminent departure from the likes of Steam was announced in May last year, following the expiration of its music licenses. Remedy explained it was “looking into relicensing the music for Alan Wake, but have no timeframe for this”.
In a new tweet, however, the developer has confirmed that all licensing issues are now resolved, and that its beloved slice of small town horror is is finally available for purchase again on PC. “Big thanks to our partner and Alan Wake’s publishers Microsoft,” Remedy posted, “who were able to renegotiate the rights to the licensed music in Alan Wake.”
