Paizo (which makes the Pathfinder system) posted on their blog that they are going to use an open license for their system. (You might have to scroll down a bit to the post - it was made on Jan 12th.)

Hasbro is looking at their license again before releasing it:

The D&D OGL was what Tactical Adventures used to make Solasta Crown of the Magistar, so I'm concerned how it's going to affect them going forward. They did an excellent job with Solasta, but now with the final DLC released, they're moving forward (or were) to the next Solasta game. I'm hoping this won't have a negative impact on the next game they make.

From the statement:
The next OGL will contain the provisions that allow us to protect and cultivate the inclusive environment we are trying to build and specify that it covers only content for TTRPGs. That means that other expressions, such as educational and charitable campaigns, livestreams, cosplay, VTT-uses, etc., will remain unaffected by any OGL update. Content already released under 1.0a will also remain unaffected.
TTRPG being Table Top RPG. Sounds like computer games have nothing to worry about.
 
I've read some quotes from the CEO's of Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro saying they think D&D is under monetized and they want to create a "recurrent spending environment". They saw how successful the GaaS model is and they're trying to do the same with D&D, which requires more control over the content. So I suspect more shenanigans in the future as they try different ways to get people into this "recurrent spending environment".
