I'm perpetually amazed that anyone takes those "promises" seriously. It might happen, it might not, but there's certainly no reason to trust that it will. Publishers/distributors going out of business generally have other things on their mind, and PR is no longer a concern.
A week after Steam gets shut off, I promise you there's a torrent on TPB "1200+ Steam game cracks". I have a LOT of games on Steam, but I'd have a hell of a lot less if I wasn't confident I'd be able to pirate pretty much all of it if it ever came to it.
