I wonder how much of this special edition and season pass behavior is driven by steam sales. Developers know a large portion of customer's are going to hold out for a sale (myself included). Thus, to maintain/increase profits (or rather to get the same average revenue per customer) they have to participate in these "P2P" practices.

Regardless, I'm super happy with my Dirt Rally 2 purchase with Season 1 & 2 for around ~$30 and look forward to picking up season 3 & 4 once it goes on sale.

Same here. Guess with the end of Season 3#4 from February on they finally will put it on sale :rolleyes:. All in all they should have handled it like DR1 : Half a year of Early Access until most inconsistend stuff is ironed out (specially if you already owned the alleged superduper "Deluxe" edition Vol 1 like me idiot did in good faith - but never ever again).
