According to Kotaku, GOG platform (once Good Old Games) has just laid off a dozen employees, which was roughly 10% of its whole staff. Officially these layoffs are a part of company’s restructuring process that has been ongoing since October 2018. Unofficially the layoffs are caused by a decrease in GOG’s revenue, which in turn was caused by Epic Store taking over a significant chunk of the gaming platform market. GOG, just like Steam, only offers the producers 70% of income from sold games, while Epic Store offers them a whooping 88%. GOG was also never all that big to begin with; I am hard pressed to come up with a very successful game that was released on GOG and not on Steam. Even The Witcher, a Polish video game, has also been released on Steam.
GOG store will probably not be closed any time soon, if for no other reason than because its owners, CD-Project, are doing well and making good money. On the other hand, CDP cannot afford to keep a no-profit business alive for long, even for sentimental reasons. How will this story end? Who knows.
