I'm disappointed on several accounts. This is one of them. The other is the system specs table that makes it look like they got money from Microsoft to promote Windows 10 (as if you couldn't run more than 1080p 30 fps on Low on Windows 7 or 8.1 on DX 11), from Intel to only list Intel CPUs, despite Ryzen's existence for the past 2 years and to some degree from Nvidia, to list two equivalent performance GPUs from different eras in the low spec, while omitting the latest AMD GPU (the RX 560) to make it even:

This. This is to benefit the publishers, not the customers.

They can. On GOG. You don't have to use the Galaxy launcher for anything, not for downloading, not for installing, not for launching.

The reason I never bought nor played that game. I only wanted it for the single-player and even there you still have to check in periodically. I'm reducing that crap as much as I can these days. I also enjoyed the first Dishonored game, but refused to buy the sequel at launch because it had Denuvo. It seems like they recently removed it in December of last year, so maybe now I'll buy it.

Let's see if it's a good game first. I'll consider it then too on Steam when it comes back. A new 7nm RTX line-up with more power and better prices and perhaps even AMD will support ray tracing then, so it'll be a better time to enjoy the effects anyway.
