One of the biggest bits of news out of yesterday's PlayStation Showcase was the release date for Alan Wake 2. And one of the biggest disappointments, for some, is that there will be no physical release: It will only be available digitally.

The upside for budget-conscious PC gamers is that we'll get it 10 bucks cheaper than console gamers—$50 on the Epic Games Store, vs $60 on other platforms—but it's definitely a letdown for box collectors.

But that may not be the end of the story. In response to a tweet about Alan Wake 2 being digital exclusive, THQ Nordic said it would be interested in publishing a boxed edition. «I mean… we did the disc version of Alan Wake for PC back in the day ICYMI ;)» THQ Nordic tweeted. «And just because ONE person (or company) does not love physical, there is plenty who still do.

Give it some thought. We'd love to go at it again! Full circle and all.» It's true: Nordic Games, as it was known before adopting the THQ prefix, published the boxed PC version of Alan Wake, which came out in 2012—two years after the original Xbox 360 release.
