Over twenty-five PC games have been licensed from the publisher, with three -- Wing Commander: Privateer, Dungeon Keeper and Ultima Underworld 1+2 -- available immediately. Three more games will be made available by the end of the month: Crusader: No Remorse, Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri and Magic Carpet. While the remaining titles were not announced, CD Projekt was careful to clarify that two of its most requested titles, System Shock and Syndicate, were not part of the deal, explaining that "the rights to those games are scattered between a lot of people, so it's quite a huge legal puzzle."
