Alan Wake 2 dev explains why game is digital-only

One of the main concerns associated with digital-only releases is the potential loss of access to the game. Ironically, the original Alan Wake faced temporary removal from digital storefronts due to music licensing issues, rendering it unavailable for purchase for 17 months. This situation highlighted the importance of physical releases for game collectors and preservationists, as physical copies ensure the game’s availability even if a digital storefront closes in the future.
