And none of them are in financial trouble, just that the guys in suits have found out that games make money as well.

err not always. Crytek is a perfect example. They couldnt even afford to pay their staff.

Well, Crytek were in financial trouble. Quite mismanaged iirc, but I don't think GOG should have any issues of that caliber. Like aren't they a subsidy of CDPR?

owned by them but perhaps they operate independant. Its very vague what the status is with GoG so we will have to see how the week pans out. This is sure gonna be a hot topic on all the tech media sites.

Off topic, but I really want to see Crytek make a Crysis remaster. That game really needs it, especially that one level where you fly the VTOL. Ruins systems even today.

To be fair aren't CPDR a heavily state-funded production company nowadays.

Considering they made over a $1 billion I'd say probably not.

Could be that they want to sell it off or leave it behind. I see GoG as a store front for Nostalgic games only.

Its great that its DRM free but then... its only a minor % of gamers who b*tch and moan about that. I couldn't care less, about it. The more recent games available can be obtained from other store at prices on equal level. So I do wonder where their income is.

Witcher 3 as amazing as it is, probably sells better on Steam or Origin (i think i saw it there).

GoG is a great store front but its popularity is fleeting for sure.
