Dear Community,

Thank you for your patience and for giving us the time to investigate the release of HITMAN GOTY on GOG. As promised, we’re getting back to you with updates.

We're still in dialogue with IO Interactive about this release. Today we have removed HITMAN GOTY from GOG’s catalog – we shouldn’t have released it in its current form, as you’ve pointed out.

We’d like to apologise for the confusion and anger generated by this situation. We’ve let you down and we’d like to thank you for bringing this topic to us – while it was honest to the bone, it shows how passionate you are towards GOG.

We appreciate your feedback and will continue our efforts to improve our communication with you.

zakius: we are still waiting for proper explanation and assurance, come on guys
Your hubris is showing. You're not going to get an explanation.

And you thought it was worth bumping a month later just to say that? Knowing we're not going to get an explanation doesn't mean you shouldn't ask.

I'm not letting it go, it's either proper resolution or no more deals

Would love to hear an update about the release of the new Hitman series. I'm really enjoying Blood Money and went over to Steam to check out the new Hitman. The DLC and always online service looks like a complete clusterduck. A clean comprehensive release would be a GOGsend.

You're not going to get an official one because that would, I imagine, require calling out people who won't let themselves be called out. My guess is something like this: some execs/"suits"/shareholders got tired of GOG effectively scraping by financially despite being in business for 13+ years, and told biz-dev to get some big-name games here even if they had DRM, "weasel them in" to the store. Apparently they didn't think there'd be such an enormous a backlash over this, though I'm guessing staff had an idea of what might happen.

The backlash was well-deserved and it's worth bumping occasionally to remind GOG not to renege again, but you're not going to get a detailed explanation unless you can convince somebody to anonymously leak.

"And thanks to WinterSnowfall an entry in GOG's database was found for HITMAN 2 Gold Edition, but we don't know the age of the entry and it might not indicate an upcoming release anymore after what happened to the first one."

I'm not asking for names, just the flaws in the process, and what was done to fix them
without that I can't trust them anymore, it's really that simple

I'm still somewhat hopeful for a "DRM-free HITMAN (+ HITMAN 2), for real this time" comeback on this year's anniversary of the first botched attempt.

Hitman 1 and 2 are kind of pointless anyway, since everything is in Hitman 3 and enhanced. I would guess some distant day when support fully ends for Hitman 3 IO will do a final patch that makes more of the game work offline and then at that point we might see a GOG release of Hitman 3. Not before.

As a proponent of keeping the original, unenhanced (no matter if for the better or worse) versions of games around alongside the enhanced editions I'd still like to see these DRM-free releases of HITMAN (2016) and HITMAN 2 (2018) to materialise.
iOi certainly wouldn't mind the additional revenue too, I could imagine.

I mean we're not talking remasters here, it's the same game just with minor tweaks. Don't get me wrong, ideally all three versions would exist as a sort of historical document, but it's not like Doom 3 or Deus Ex 3 where there's real reasons to play the original.
