This Sunday, GOG.com disappeared, replaced with a vague message from its creators about the website’s closure. But it turned out they weren’t closing. Tomorrow, the site will re-launch, out of beta with some new features and some new games, but fundamentally unchanged. The closure was a hoax. After days of growing backlash as rumours spread and gamers were understandably unhappy at being fooled, we asked Good Old Games why they decided to re-launch the site in this way.
Their statement is included in full below.
