Alan Wake 2 dev explains why game is digital-only

Kyle Rowley, the game director for Alan Wake 2, has defended the decision for a digital-only release. In an interview with Eurogamer, Rowley explained that this approach allows the team to dedicate more time to polishing the game. For a physical release, the game must be playable without the need for a patch several weeks before launch, known as “going gold.” By opting for a digital-only release, Remedy, the developer of Alan Wake 2, can continue working on the game until the day of its launch.
