Actually, TW2 (unlike TW1) does not fall in the latter. TW2 uses a brand new new engine (REDengine) which looks and works more like Skyrim's Creation engine rather than TW1's Aurora engine. The tile-set based levels are gone and every chapter (TW2 has 3 chapters plus a prologue and an epilogue) in TW2 is a huge map without any levels. The reason behind separating the chapters is not technical, it's because of the way the story unfolds.
