Looks like it's no longer coming to GOG, Page is gone and their sight only lists steam and ps5.
Looks like the game's devs decided to went (full retard)... I mean "full online" mode.
The game's page on steam states that "Wizard with a Gun is an online cooperative sandbox survival game."
Well if it's an always-online game it sure doesn't belong on GOG. Shame, because the game looked cool.

Funny times those in which we're living... People are becoming more and more autistic, isolated and hostile concerning interacting with others. But more and more games are going the "only play with friends" way. Must be something related to "safe spaces" and never leaving home, I'd guess?
Whenever I want to interact socially I just leave my PC and go hang out with folks.

That's not actually true, according to GOG itself, as of some months ago when GOG released a server on which to play Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory, and along with that, they announced that GOG will now be offering online-only multiplayer games going forward.

And here is a GOG store page for that game, which has no singleplayer:

GWENT of course is also an online-only game with no singleplayer that has been on GOG for a long time.

Both games you mentioned are free. I don't give a shit about free online games, so GOG could easily put 100 games like that and I wouldn't care. GOG can even make a deal with valve and put "Counter-Strike" here for all I care. But SELLING an online-only (DRM'd) game, that's a different story.


EDIT
Weird... I can't post anymore on this thread. Must be some bug - or maybe I'm banned, who knows :)

If my next post appears as having two phrasings, it's because of that.

Oh I see. Well, it may be a different story with selling such games, but yet even so, GOG still announced that they are going to be doing that going forward.

So according to GOG's official policies, there are zero reasons why Wizard with a Gun couldn't still come to GOG, despite it being sold for money and online-only.

GOG stated that they're going to sell always-online games? Interesting... when did they announce that?

Online-only and multiplayer-only are different things. Gwent is online-only game, it requires connection to master sever. Wolf: ET requires no such thing, you can self-host your own servers, play on your friend's server, public servers or local network. Or install bots and play offline. It's perfect example of DRM-free multiplayer-only game.
