In an FAQ for Alan Wake 2, Remedy Entertainment also revealed that the game will only get a digital-only release. The developer cited multiple reasons for this decision. For one, a large number of players have shifted to digital only. Sony sells a PlayStation 5 without a disc drive and Microsoft’s Xbox Series S is a digital-only console. As a result, the studio stated that it is not uncommon to release modern games as digital-only. Secondly, not releasing a disc helps keep the price of the game at $59.99 / €59.99 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S and $49.99 / €49.99 on PC.
The studio also revealed that Alan wake 2 will receive post-launch support, with both free content as well as two paid expansions. The expansions are called Night Springs and the Lake House, but the developer didn’t share any further details regarding them.
