first_imgGOG.com is well known for giving PC gamers everywhere access to a growing wealth of classic games as digital downloads. The whole service is built around updating the classics and offering them to us DRM-free and with compatibility assured for the latest operating systems.Next year that focus is set to change, though. Eurogamer.net has been informed that from May next year GOG.com will sell the brand new game Witcher 2. Better yet, it will be sold just like all the classic games available on the service without any DRM in place.The official announcement is expected to be made later today by CD Projekt at a live press conference. We’ll also be told details of a Premium and Collector’s Edition of the game and have the release date of May 17, 2011 confirmed.Read more at Eurogamer.netMatthew’s OpinionGOG.com has admitted that there’s only so many old games it can bring to the site. More will appear every year, but the flood will turn into a trickle in a couple of years or so.What GOG.com have is a solid digital distribution system and a name that is well-known among gamers. So why not start branching out into offering new games? They have the resources, the user base, and the backend to make it work. Choosing not to use DRM is just going to be the icing on the cake for a lot of gamers.Whether this is just an experiment, or the start of a movement to support old and new, has yet to be seen. I’m sure sites like Steam and GamersGate won’t mind the competition while retailers will be even more annoyed than they already are, especially if the retail version of Witcher 2 contains GOG.com links.last_img
