    I don’t understand why Alan Wake is leaving GP. It’s a Microsoft published game. I know Remedy developed it, but the game is 11 years old. It’s best to leave it in, in hopes that more people get a chance to play it.
    Remedy fully acquired the publishing rights to Alan Wake in July 2019.
    Yep. This is how they could bring Alan Wake into Control.

    Final Fantasy VII will leave in August, and VIII in November (+/- 1 month for both, depending on when exactly the contract expires). It was a year contract for the previous two Final Fantasy games.

    Related franchise Kingdom Hearts is at risk of having 1.5+2.5 and 2.8 removed in June, but notably Kingdom Hearts III didn't get removed in February (which would have been its year).

    Yeah, when I see crap like that I just play until the credits roll and do any mop up that genuinely seems fun. I’m done letting achievements suck the fun out of good games for me.
    You sir, have figured out life.

    Thank you! It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure this out and even longer to get into the habit. I can genuinely say I enjoy games more now and I still dig that achievement *ding* sound!

    Just buy Alan Wake on eBay, it's less than $5 and you can finish it whenever. (DLC is free too)
    How is dlc free when it says it isn’t? Also is the dlc worth the current asking price?
    No, it's too expensive for what it offers, it's very short.
    I think if you buy a brand new sealed physical copy of Quantum Break, it also comes with a code for a free digital copy of Alan Wake. Not sure if it includes the DLC though, but if I had to guess I would say probably not.

    EDIT: I just looked it up on Amazon, its about $17 new right now, and the listing says the code card for Alan Wake does include the DLCs as well.
