As a result of music license issues, developer Remedy has stated that the hit game Alan Wake will be pulled off shelves soon. It’s noted that it is not just individual tracks, but instead the sound track as a whole that has licensing issues. Digital and physical copies of the game on Xbox 360 and PC will be pulled from all retailers soon, though the DLC American Nightmare will be able to stay up for a longer time as its soundtrack was re-licensed. Remedy states that they will try to get the game’s soundtrack re-licensed, but they do not know when this will happen.

Remedy also states that with the game being pulled off, there will be a Steam sale for the game this weekend, at the sale price of  $3 with the DLC also being for sale. Additionally, it is confirmed that even after the listings for Alan Wake are taken off, you can still play the game no problem. Alan Wake will be for sale this weekend only, and will then be pulled off.
