If you still do not have Alan Wake in your collection, you’d better hurry to buy it. This we say because the game of Remedy will no longer be on sale (both physical and digital format) as of May 15.
On its official Twitter account, Remedy reported that this will happen as the license to use Alan Wake’s music is about to expire. For this reason, the developer can no longer sell the game without running the risk of facing a legal problem.
It is important to note that this only means that Alan Wake will not be on sale, but if you already have it you can play it without problem. Another detail is that this situation will not affect Alan Wake’s American Nightmare, so it will remain available.
For all those who do not yet have Alan Wake have the opportunity to acquire it, Remedy will offer it with 90% discount on Steam. This promotion will start tomorrow, Saturday, May 13. At the moment it has not been announced if there will be a similar promotion for the Xbox 360 version.
Another good news is that Alan Wake is likely to be on sale at some point. Remedy has plans to get back the license to use the music of Alan Wake; However, the company does not know when they will reach an agreement.
Alan Wake is available for PC and Xbox 360, although you can play it on Xbox One thanks to the backward compatibility program.
