This is like the one game that basically should *absolutely* not be the reason for the changes since this is the one game the owners of GOG actually have full control over, since they own it.
That's why the response came off as a bit odd I'd imagine ;)
My intention with this post was that i doubt that we will see any new AAA games. So I used the Witcher early 2015 as example. It is not the reason for the changes, the game was regional priced before.
My point was that GOG said their "one world, one price" policy was preventing
them from signing a deal for AAA titles and it was mandatory
to not have it. We need more breakthroughs like this to be able to show all the devs and publishers in our industry that DRM-free digital distribution is actually good for their business and their fans. And when I say breakthroughs, I am talking about really kick-ass games, with a potential metacritic score of 85% or more, AA+ and AAA kind of titles. And this is exactly why we signed those 3 (first officially regionally priced) games we told you about last Friday. We believe those 3 games can be massive hits for hardcore gamers, that they can help us spread the DRM-free model among the industry for newer games and we did our best to convince their rights holders to give GOG.com a try. One of those games, as you see already, is Age of Wonders 3. We're planning more titles even beyond these first 3 soon.
I have seen indie, old and AA+. I don't see AAA. Not one, not more. None that would support such claim. Wide-spread regionally priced website didn't prevent Witcher 2 to be sold here Day 1. Neither would Witcher 3.
