GOG.com, the digital downloads portal that has specialized in making older classic PC games available to download in affordable, DRM-free formats, has announced plans to begin to focus on adding newer titles to its catalog as well, including developer exclusives.
Managing Director Guillaume Rambourg outlined the company’s plans for 2012 and 2013 at the CD Project RED Conference in Warsaw, Poland:
“First, we will be adding newer games into the catalog in 2012. Traditionally, GOG.com has looked for great classics that are three years old or older. We will continue to add classic games, of course, but we are actively working to sign newer titles now. Of course, these new titles will have to come at a new, higher price point, but our key focus will always be on the same core values that have made GOG.com great so far: completely DRM-free games, flat prices everywhere in the world, and extra content and goodies for our fantastic customers.”
According to Rambourg, GOG.com plans to have more than 400 games in its catalog by the end of 2012 while continuing to improve the GOG.com website.
“Finally,” Rambourg continued, “we want to work closely with ambitious developers and independent publishers who feel a kinship with that ‘good old spirit’ that GOG.com embodies. Thanks to the commercial success of The Witcher 2 on GOG.com, more and more people realize that our values are universal. They are coming to GOG and asking if we can carry their titles. We’ve made GOG.com the destination for classic PC games, but now is the time to take this to the next level and emerge as the best alternative digital distribution platform forallPC games.”
GOG.com is the premier destination for DRM-free PC games, offering some of the greatest PC games of all time for a low price and free from copy protection. GOG.com also features an extensive community component that allows players to rate, review and discuss their favorite PC games.
