For more details, check out this post:
GOG announced the release of Devotion on December 16 but then cancelled it in mysterious circumstances. The only comment they made sounded like that's what people asked for. But there's no evidence that was the case. GOG failed to provide any explanation, and has remained silent since, aggravating even more of their customers (including the people who originally didn't care that much).
murcielago: What's people waiting here for with messages like "x days had passed and we don't know anything"?
Another thing is, though, we are not in China, are we?
murcielago: One thing is true for sure: if an editor/developer wants to distribute a game in China, it has to complish with their rules, like them or not.
Also, the game was never officially banned in China, and it was never found not to comply with any laws, while GOG sells other games that were banned in China.
It's a separate issue, and much more serious in the opinion of many people. For example I was about to buy Cyberpunk despite the issues but now I won't.
murcielago: People boycotting Gog for this thing together with the Cyberpunk game problems is a nonsense for me.
Since you don't know practically anything about it (as you freely admit yourself), how can you be so certain the reaction from all the people who most likely know more than you do about what happened is "nonsense?"
