Over the years, many publishers have been forced to remove their games from storefronts due to issues with music licensing. Remedy’s Alan Wake had to be removed from sale on PC and consoles. It took the company almost a year and a half to renegotiate the music rights and return to stores. Meanwhile, SEGA’s Alpha Protocol was taken off Steam in 2019 for the same reason. At the time of writing, the Obsidian-developed RPG remains absent from PC gaming’s biggest digital store.
