"No Firm Decision" Yet on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 DRM

Rock, Paper, Shotgun has a response from GSC Game World to yesterday's report suggesting some sort of always-on DRM is in the works for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. Word is that while such a plan is being considered for the first-person shooter sequel, they have not yet made a final decision:

The idea of implementing DRM came in as a possible anti-piracy solution. You know the severe level of commercial piracy we have here in ex-USSR region. This said however, there is no firm decision to go for DRM with S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 as of now. Be assured, we do realize how uncomfortable this solution is for the players, so we’ll continue looking for most effective, yet acceptable for all, way of protecting the game by the time of its release.

I think this highlights the difference between GSC Game World and id Software. Here within a day they have issued a response and sought to clarify the situation. With RAGE rumours, confusion and doubt fuelled heated debate and their response on Twitter was to simply tell people to use the latest drivers. If they had simply worked with the community much more closely they could have minimised the turbulence from the problems at launch. Instead the fan base turned on them, which was completely understandable.
