Supreme Commander 2 Discussion
PS: If I could afford the unlimited membership I've upgraded to that because I'm not the patient kind of person.
The game has been out for less than a month for one thing. On that 'new' basis alone it's understandable why it won't simply be released free, regardless of whether the version is current or not.
Also, many times these quick game updates are minor and/or don't really bring a noticeable benefit to most users; therefore, you would get some people trying to 'hold back' on the updates so they could keep using the fully-featured release (should that happen). This wouldn't be so easy on a steam version as it would try and forceably update, but on retail like this game, people could abuse it (promising to purchase later, which 99% of the time will never happen).
In addition, there are no other reliable working trainers for this game, certainly not for any of the updates, so it's not as if there is any need to 'compete' for example. You have to also understand that CH is ultimately a business, and sticking out public releases on all initial versions wouldn't bode well.
