As with anything these days, I'm sure it's a business decision. Shows are marketed and released over time and the score releases help drive ongoing attention and interest, while films have their one moment in the spotlight at release and then fade out of the cultural conversation (at least from a money-making perspective).

That's also why this new approach to multiple album releases is mostly happening before or very close to the the release of the film. It's just another component of the marketing strategy. And for a composer like Zimmer, trying to maximize the impact on his own "brand," all the attention comes during the lead-up to and first few weeks of release, after which people have moved on.
