The digital version of the card game will lose two versions soon.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt was a pretty special game for a lot of reasons. Whether it be the size and scope of its world, or the writing which puts a large part of AAA gaming to shame. But it’s also interesting as a game within that game basically became its own thing. The GWENT card game within The Witcher 3 ended up being spun off from that game into its own thing, and it’s had its far share of updates and success. But it seems it’s not quite big enough to support all of its current versions.
As announced by developer CD Projekt RED, the company will no longer support updates for the PS4 and Xbox One port of the game, siting resources being too thin to support those and the ongoing PC and mobile versions. All isn’t lost, however. You will be able to copy your progress onto either the PC or mobile version for a period of six months before the game is completely removed. You can read more about that via the official announcement here.
GWENT will still run regularly on PC and iOS, with an Android version planned to come soon. The PS4 and Xbox One will function regularly until December 9th and then will be frozen to no longer have updates, in-app purchases or online matchmaking.
