Alan Wake back on Steam, coming to Xbox soon

Alan Wake is once again available for purchase on Steam and will soon head back to Xbox 360 and Xbox One, Remedy Entertainment has confirmed.

The title was pulled from storefronts back in May 2017 because of expired music licenses. Today, Remedy has declared that publisher Microsoft has resolved those licensing issues.

“Big thanks to our partner and Alan Wake’s publishers Microsoft who were able to renegotiate the rights to the licensed music in Alan Wake,” Remedy said on various social media channels.

Remedy says the game will head back to Xbox — both Xbox 360 and Xbox One via backwards compatibility — “very soon.” We’ll let you know when that happens.

Alan Wake is currently on sale on the Steam platform — rather than $14.99 USD, you can grab it for $2.99 USD until 1 November. We highly recommend you do.

Control is the next game from Remedy — in our E3 preview, we said it mixes Alan Wake with Quantum Break to produce some delicious results.
