I hope not because…how much profit can you really do nowadays by selling only those type of games (the old ones which now are targeted to a niche, specific audience)? Is that enough to sustain such a business? I don't believe so and this news made me very concerned about the future existence of the GOG.com website itself.

Something doesn't smell good here, IMHO it smells worse than what they meant.
If they keep losing money on GOG it won't be sustainable long term to keep it running. They must be selling really poorly right now. And considering people bought a lot more games during the pandemic is not a good sign.
