CDPR: "We're not about the money, we're about making a product we love and letting everyone play it - regardless of if our take is less"

They have a point. Why soend years to make something if less people will be able to play it? Is the trade off in proffit worth it?

 

besides they own GoG, so why even bother

From the comments section by YongYea: "For those pointing out this should be obvious given CD Projekt Red has GOG, keep in mind that Ubisoft has UPlay and still made a deal with Epic to exclude Division 2 from Steam, so it's good to know something like that won't happen with Cyberpunk 2077."

I think selling 2077 on consoles is going to be a more lucrative strategy than gaming the PC market anyways. Steam is the largest share, GoG is the optimal payout. No need to sign any exclusive deals; getting on more distribution platforms the better.

Kinda seems dumb that anyone would even think they'd limit their game to the Epic Games Store given they own their own platform and I don't think they've ever limited their games to it.

Thronebreaker was GOG exclusive for ~a month before being released on steam. And while not quite the same thing if you buy CDPR games anywhere other than steam you get a GOG key, not a steam one. OTOH I doubt Epic could offer CDPR enough money to make 2077 Epic Store exclusive, not really their style and it would involve far too many toys coming out of cots from the steam === PCgaming crowd.

We aren't Bobby's target and never have been, shareholders are. And they love that sort of thing. Bobby has zero bonks to give for gamers, so long as he get their money.

I totally forgot about Bobby Kotick and his "taking the fun out of making games" bs.

Warhorse Studios has been bought by THQ Nordic as per this. So that means another studio basically owned by Koch Media...
