Alan Wake 2 could finally be released physically, at least on PC

After all, a physical release for Alan Wake 2 might be possible as THQ Nordic has hinted that it’s interested in publishing a hard copy of the sequel digital-only.

THQ Nordic published the first Alan Wake game on PC and released it on hard disk. “I mean… we did the disc version of Alan Wake for PC back in the ICYMI era,” THQ Nordic said on Twitter. “And just because one person (or company) doesn’t love the physical, there are still plenty of people who do. Give it some thoughts. We want to go into it again! Full circle and all.

While this is far from confirmed, THQ Nordic’s proposal offers a glimmer of hope for those who want to get their hands on a physical copy of Alan Wake 2.

Earlier this week, Remedy Entertainment revealed the sequel will be a digital release only across all platforms to maintain costs. Therefore, the game remains the same price of 60 USD on console and 50 USD on PC instead of 70 USD like many other publishers are charging at the moment.

Alan Wake 2 was shown at PlayStation Showcase May 2023 and a feature second protagonist playable in Saga. It launches on October 17, 2023 for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S.
