Not sure if this is a temporary issue that might not require the game to go on the list, but I'd like to post this here just as a warning:

I recently pre-ordered Weird West on GOG (yeah yeah, I know, sue me) and I just got an e-mail from GOG saying the game won't be available on GOG on global release day (which is today). They say they're aiming to have the game on GOG "in the second half of April at the latest". They're not saying why the game is delayed only on GOG, but the message says they're working on "resolving the issue together with the publisher".

This is just speculation on my part, but I'd suggest that either GOG QA messed up the process of publishing the game here or the publisher doesn't want to have a DRM-free copy out on release day or maybe they just didn't finish a DRM-free release build in time. One way or another, I fear this doesn't bode well for GOG customers being treated equally when it comes to updates or DLC down the line - we'll have to wait and see.

My faith in GOG is dropping everyday more and more...

Now I'm curious to see what will happen first: me getting the delayed game or you actually getting through to a human being :D

By the way, if you're planning on buying Weird West somewhere else (Steam, Epic etc.), I'd love to hear if the game is DRM-free there. If that's the case then at least we'd have an indication that the whole DRM-free thing isn't the reason for the delay and someone else must've f***ed up the release.

I'm gonna make the test for you ^^
Game here before refund or refund and game nowhere to be seen for another month...or worst like Ancestors Legacy.
Otherwise,nope,not gonna buy the game on Steam or Epic.
Just...Devolver don't seem to like GOG.

Steam it is DRMed for sure, but most Devolver games on Epic can be launched DRM Free with some tweaks.
But I also guess is the DRM Free, probably they add some online check that prevent the pre order for example verify on GOG without internet connevtion or something, the last pre order from Shadow Warrior 3 got that problem and then they release it as part of the Deluxe Edition (I win I think).
For my part I will wait, already wait for some months, two weeks pass in a flash.

JoshoB: Well, you would be wrong, because the version available here is also 1.9.3.

DD & Ji Ji: Glad to hear that . Unfortunately they still not updated the Gog version of Armageddon .
I wasn't sure what do you mean by armageddon missing update, because steamdb and gogdb match. After scouring slitherine board I found that you most likely mean the community update. The problem here is that it is essentialy a fan project, a mod if you will, and not an official release from devs (albeit one that is endorsed by them). So it isn't really developers treating GOG as 2nd rate so much as the modder.

Also it took some time but Oriental Empires is now up to date.

Hmm . But it were the developers who provided the modder the source code.

This thread is about games where GOG customers get a worse treatment than customers of other stores though, regardless of where the blame lies.
Just to let you know...GOG already refunded my purchase of Weird West :)
I have money on my GOG Wallet ready for another Publisher ^^
Bye Devolver Games!
And Thanks GOG Support Team!
