Renowned Chinese PC pirate group 3DM have vowed to stop cracking games for a year to see what impact it has on game sales.
“We just had an internal meeting. Starting at the Chinese New Year, 3DM will not crack any single-player games,” says a 3DM representative,”We’ll take a look at the situation in a year’s time to see if genuine sales have grown.”
Instead, the group will focus on localising games for the Chinese market. The group had previously said Just Cause 3 was too hard to crack, as was Rise of the Tomb Raider.
Obviously other groups will continue to pirate games but this has to be seen as a massive win for the game publishers.
