GOG To Refocus “Core Business Activity” After Financial Losses

The DRM-free PC storefront will see a repositioning of sorts after a disappointing quarter, according to CD Projekt.

While CD Projekt is largely known for their two big franchise, Cyberpunk and The Witcher, the developer is actually part of a much bigger company that has its hands in a lot of pies. One of those is the GOG storefront on PC. The storefront has been an alternative to Steam that releases DRM-free versions of games, and also has focused a lot on re-releasing older PC titles that haven’t had updated releases, such as Silent Hill 4: The Room earlier this year. However, it seems the project may be going through some big changes.

As reported by The Verge, apparently CD Projekt looks to refocus things around their storefront. While the overall revenue was up for the last quarter, there was a net loss of $1.14 million with a combined loss of $2.21 million over the past three quarters. CD Projekt CFO Piotr Nielubowicz told investors that GOG will now focus its core business activity around a “a handpicked selection of games.” It’s not clear what exactly that means, but Nielubowicz said that it would include developers being shuffled from the project.

GOG launched in 2008 as a storefront based around releasing older PC titles. While that mission has continued, it has expanded into new game releases, with its biggest selling point being its DRM-free nature.
