An update on the still-mysterious GOG.com situation

Following this past weekend‘s is-it-closing-or-not weirdness with digital distribution service Good Old Games, we have a quick update from the team itself. As seen on GOG.com:

“First of all, we apologize everyone for the whole situation and closing GOG.com. We do understand the timing for taking down the site caused confusion and many users didn’t manage to download all their games. Unfortunately we had to close the service due to business and technical reasons.”

“At the same time we guarantee that every user who bought any game on GOG.com will be able to download all their games with bonus materials, DRM-free and as many times as they need starting this Thursday.”

An official statement from management will be made on Wednesday. Word on the shady Internet streets is that the service will come back permanently, just not entirely how we remember it being.
