Any chance this gets released on physical media?

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it. The game has already received a "physical release" that consisted of a case with a download code and an art cell from the game. I have no idea why - I'd think that they'd be limiting the amount of potential purchases (and this game has already sold over two million copies). I've heard in the past that Microsoft has charged independent developers exorbitant fees for putting their games through a mandatory recertification process - maybe making the game available on disc would have required this and the digital code release was a way around that (I could totally wrong here - if anyone else knows more, please leave a reply)? Limited Run Games doesn't seem to do releases for the Xbone, either.

I haven't heard any plans for a physical release either. I wouldn't rule it out, but even if it does ever happen I wouldn't expect it anytime soon. Plus, like velcrozombie noted, the game is an Xbox One exclusive on consoles, and it seems like Limited Run Games and a lot of the similar small publishers aren't making Xbox One games. IMO your best bet is to just bite the bullet with the download.
