I don't think they'll make a demo anymore until long and that would be better if they don't design the demo as a demo not just the very beginning of the game.
Divinity 1 had an similar problem.

The beginning actually WAS the demo. Or vice versa.

I mean, the beginning of the main game was the sole content of the demo. The demo contained nothing but the beginning of the game.

At least regarding the first part of the demo.

There was an mater, mid-story part in the demo I played, too.
