One of Sega’s games is no longer able to be purchased from Steam. Alpha Protocol, which was made by Obsidian Entertainment and released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, has been delisted. Sega confirmed to Eurogamer that, due to rights to the music expiring, it had to puil it from the storefront. However, it does own the IP.  


In Alpha Protocol, players follow an Alpha Protocol agent named Michael Thorton. After completing his first mission, he is attacked and thought to be dead. Instead, this gives him the perfect opportunity to help save the agency, which has been taken over by an American defense contractor named Halbech. It was known for its customization and RPG elements, which allowed you to choose Thorton’s background and Perks, and also a Dialogue Stance System that let him have certain stances when interacting with and responding to NPCs.


Alpha Protocol was released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in North America, Australia, and Europe.
