Funcom Drops "Offline" Games

Adventure Gamers has a report based on a Norwegian newspaper article saying that developer Funcom is going to concentrate their future efforts on online games only. The increasingly familiar explanation is PC piracy:
According to Funcom's Trond Arne Aas, there had been over 200,000 illegal downloads of Dreamfall, even before its release last year. Also, he estimates that for each PC game that is sold, between 3 and 10 times as many is stolen, thus resulting in Funcom's decision to stop producing offline PC games.
