...Dragon's Dogma, is doing just fine without it.
Do you happen to have an article about this? As far as I know, there hasn't been any mention of the sales numbers on GOG for Dragon's Dogma. I mean, I hope with all my heart that it did great, so that maybe we may get some more Capcom games, but considering the amount of bad publicity over separate multiplayer servers for GOG and STEAM, makes me doubt that.
Regardless of how it's doing on GOG, as far as I know it doesn't have Denuvo on Steam, either. And I doubt they lost a significant number of sales to piracy because of that, compared to Denuvo protected games.
I guess the majority of gamers don't care, but personally I don't buy Steam games with additional DRM on top of the Steam client.
