Community manager Elizabeth Tobey has posted over on the official 2K message boards that BioShock 2 on PC will only use SecuROM as a disc check only.

After that, you can install as many times as you like, however – GFWL will limit the number of activations.

According to three different forum posts (thanks, Blue), here is what we found out:

“This is a number set by Microsoft,” said Tobey. “We went with this option because we wanted to go with non-ssa keys, because we felt that was better for you guys all around.”

PC requirements for the game were listed on Steam yesterday.

Game’s out in February.
