Risen 2 DLC Already on Disc?

A forum thread on GameFAQs has indications that Risen 2: Dark Waters may be the latest game to ship with what's supposed to be future DLC included on the retail disc. The thread outlines the discovery, and spawns one of those heated discussions over the ethics of making content on the game disc dependant on a future. Thanks Blend Games.

Isn't Risen 2 a bit ... rough? What are their priorities?

It's a Piranha Bytes game. If there's one thing these German developers are known for (aside from Crytek), it's for delivering rough, buggy games. The first Risen was the same way, the Gothic series, Sacred... QA is just not a priority. I was looking forward to the way Risen 2 looked, but seeing that and the fact that it proudly had Day 1 DLC that wasn't even available to pre-orders (and was reportedly mediocre on top)... meh. One less game for the wishlist.

Huh !?
I was thinking that if there's ONLY ONE thing Piranha Bytes could be known for that would be that they make extremely fun, funny and entertaining games with a great emphasis on discovery and a recognisable and inspired art style (did I mention the memorable soundtracks in every one of their games?).

Being a little buggy/glitchy occasionaly would be at worst only the SECOND THING thing about them.

I'm not defending DLC-on-disc as I think it sucks as an industry-wide practice, but being the PB fanboy that I am I just cannot let your unjust hatey remarks go unchecked
