Bad Gog. And worse now I have to rush getting the season pass unless you yank it before I get the chance. D: This is the time of year you are supposed to be doing nice things to your costumers not mean things.

It isn't in their control; there's a whole complicated series of legal issues outside of GOG to be resolved between Stardock's laughable CEO and the Brothers who created the series.

If it can be resolved, considering how much Stardock's CEO has been dropping the ball.

While there's plenty to be said about the state of copyright and IP laws, the last thing gog needs is to be pulled into a court battle over a single title in their catalogue, especially when there's no upside to them being involved.
Besides from what I've read on the subject thus far it sounds like it makes sense for Fred & Paul to request the take down while these matters are addressed.

I just heard the new on Saturday, January 19th the the game got back on Steam. I hope that it will come also back on GOG as well in the coming week. At least you guys give your people a break on the weekend. ;)

So - it's been back on Steam for a week or so now. Is it coming back to GOG?
Hooray, it's back.

EDIT: Feb/3/2019
For some reason the main game is still not back on the Stardock store site for GOG, just all DLC's.
Maybe the GOG team might want to check on that.

EDIT: Feb/23/2019
Seems like the game disappeared again from GOG. :/

Anyone knows WHY and maybe HOW it is back, exactly?
Because, from what I know, Stardock is still being trounced by the judge. So it's not because R&f claims are put into question...
Are we ever going to see the new DLC or is it done?

Let them finish their fight in court first. That might take ten years or so.
OK well I'm planning on being alive in 10 years so who knows. Might actually get to play it?

haha
