I could actually see this happening. Especially with WoW subscription #'s in the shitter. They could bundle WoW + most if not all of the xpacs, a couple Hearth Stone packs and maybe a Hero or 2 from Heroes of the Storm. They usually run deals on WoW + the xpacs anyway.
I could get down w/ some cheap Wow Expansions + game-time.
I have just about everything else Blizzard since Diablo 1 PC, though.

More coal to the boiler.
I don't know who the hell is going to buy this. You can often get a MysterD 4GB VRAM 960 for $200-210 when it's on sale on NewEgg, which is now often packaged w/ MGS5. You might as well buy that for the more VRAM - if you're going to go only NVidia; are fine with 1080p; and don't want to join the $300 3.5 GB 970 club.
2GB VRAM is too little; too many new games require that now. They should drop the price on 2GB 960 - they still have to compete w/ AMD here, who's offering up often better VRAM amounts at the $200 or less pricing. NVidia needs something in-between the 2GB 960 and 4GB 960 - i.e. maybe a 3GB VRAM 960 version.

Do you think they even care? The dev of those two games doesn't even exist anymore. They probably don't want to pay someone to remove all this because it would mean they'd have to pay money. And why bother if it's not going to make them any cash?
Eden Games might be gone - but Atari still own the IP rights, distribution rights + sells the 2 games on Steam.
If all they have to do is like companies EgoSoft + Larian have done in the past by basically distributing an unwrapped EXE file, how hard can this really be?
They could just leave the Securom DRM files in the folder, but released a unprotected EXE - all will be well. DRM files will be inert + useless, basically just wasting space.
Likely, either Atari themselves or some dev' who has the master-copy unprotected somewhere. They could just pass the unprotected EXE to Atari, Atari goes through whatever procedures to get it onto Steam - all done.

OMG OMG THE SKY IS FALLING
The sky's not falling. RPS does list ways Win 10 users can get around it in some round-about ways, if they really want to go about doing so.
Microsoft has every right to do this. This is their OS and they are doing basically what they did w/ Vista, when they blocked StarForce. SafeDisc + Securom always been known to open up all kinds of security holes w/ Microsoft OS's.
Dev's + pub's really need to release patches for older games for those users; re-release any of these games on Steam w/out Securom + SafeDisc (if they haven't already); and/or re-release games w/ no DRM on GOG (or wherever else).
And for any of those games on Steam w/ 3rd party Securom - i.e. Atari has Alone in the Dark Reboot + TDU2 using this garbage - well, there's no more reason for that DRM to be wrapped around it, especially if they are still selling copies of it on Steam!!! Those deserve an update w/out the crap DRM.

If anybody has Windows 10, good luck w/ getting going (especially older) games w/ Securom DRM or SafeDisc DRM.
Windows 10 won't run those games, without doing all kinds of fiddling & working-around.
More reasons dev's + pub's need to ditch the non-Steam crap DRM types.
And just stick to either Steam's CEG DRM (if they insist on DRM) or No-DRM period.
