People will just skip/pirate this title and move on.
It won't sell as well as it would have done if they'd ignored DRM issues and just ridden the wave of publicity, but I doubt it was ever going to be a major profit generator for them.

Plus depending on the plot it won't really feel like a much older game, the overland map is going to be irrelevant because it's a city game and the plot revealed so far seems pretty heavily weighted towards a non party experience, and the graphics will just be the same.
