And that actually comes across as pretty condescending. I truly hope that Cyberpunk isn't limited to GOG only.
It's an interesting conundrum for them surely. Valve releases their games on Steam exclusively to draw people on to their platform. It is debatable whether this tactic might work for CDPR with Cyberpunk 2077 in growing Galaxy adoption. Similarly we now see that EA now exclusively releases their games on Origin.
Conversely if we consider the market dominance of Steam, not releasing on their platform could impede sales and cause commentary similar to which you voice. It is understandable, and not unexpected.
Surely there are some serious financial instruments involved in the discussion and a high-level strategy guiding general decision making when this decision was made months ago. As an example, clearly for EA the strategy is already in play with Origin exlusives and EA Access, and they appear to be doing just fine financially.
It's quite interesting to watch when you think about it, I'd get the popcorn out as it'll be sales figures and continued play that drives decisions in this space.
And it's going to be more and more...
Activision used now Battle.net, the Activision-Blizzard client.
Bethesda will stop used Steam to use their own, with Fallout 76 next month,
EA use Origin, Microsoft too, Sony also on Playstation, Nintendo too...
Ubisoft use Uplay (but you can buy it on steam, and it will be both Steam AND Uplay DRM)
CDP used Gog, who is one greatest client i've got so far. So. That's how the market work. Steam will loose many editor in the next years because nobody want to keep them "alone" on the market.
The "Only Steam" is something who can finish in next month.
