I would hope not. I think the latest stalker game was the last recently released game I paid for but I will not be doing so for this one if they go the steam route.
Being released on Steam has some advantages for (nearly) everyone.

1. Steam as copy prevention sucks. Cracks are easily availabe on release day and for every major patch release.

2. The dev has a well established DRM system he can show his investors.

3. For some customers Steam adds value to a game.

4. Sales will reduce the buying price to a few dollars, if you are patient enough and have no interest in spending 40-50 bucks, dollars, euros, pounds whatever on a game you only rent.

Yes, no DRM at all is the best solution for the devs and the customers, but sadly not all devs go indie and the major publishers answer only to their investors, not to the customers or devs.
