This story just keeps getting weirder. Apparently even the PC version is getting a full retail re-release, at least in the UK. It’s not like bricks and mortar stores carry much in the way of new PC games these days, let alone over-priced “budget” re-releases.
This has got to be some sort of weird contractual obligation thing.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen something like this. Rise of Legends got a full retail rerelease a while back after underperforming the first time. I do wonder how it did the second go-round.
