And to address the Mantroid in the room – the different
release dates. It’s nothing personal, we love you all equally.
Different countries have different requirements when it
comes to rating the content on the discs, and in some cases, this means that a
game (or Episode) can’t be rated until it’s complete and submitted, even if
it’s not on the disc, which is why the game will be releasing later in the
We wanted the physical edition to be available on the same
date as the digital release of Episode 5 on December 3rd – so
Episodes 1 to 4 are on the disc, and Episode 5 will be supplied as a download on
all platforms. The complete game clocks in at around 65GB of content, and Xbox
and PS4 discs top out at 50GB of capacity, which means that Episode 5 will
always be a download in every territory, including the Americas.
With Life is Strange 2 we understand that some players may
have been waiting for the final episode to release before diving into the game,
and that in an ideal world, those holding out for the physical release wouldn’t
want to wait longer than those playing digitally.
We wanted to give as many people as possible the opportunity
to choose between a digital and physical box full season release on December
3rd, but for the reasons touched on above, we aren’t able to provide a
simultaneous release in every territory.
The only alternative was to push every release date back to
February 4th, 2020. As Life is Strange fans, you’ll know that
struggling with hard choices is at the core of what we do – this was one we
In the end, we decided a split release was the best way to
give the most players the widest amount of choice. For those of you in the
Americas who are already playing digitally, or who have been waiting for the
game’s full release on digital platforms before diving in, have no fear: the
upcoming Season Finale will launch digitally everywhere on December 3rd.
Life is Strange 2 is available to buy digitally on Xbox One,
PS4 and Steam. Physical boxed editions are available to pre-order now, from
BuyLiS2.com. Additional retailer links will be added to
this page as they go live.
We’re approaching the end of the Life is Strange 2 road, but
there’s still so much to see before your choices lead you to your grand finale!

@LifeIsStrange@Twitch@Xbox@shypix Not the answer I hoped for, but the one I expected. (My offline job is handling bug issues store-level so I understand.) Was hoping for a sooner fix, will just have to do both. Hopefully the issue won't repeat then. Thanks for the update. Until then, more Shadowkeep.
