“Delivering a good game” is more important right now.
CD Projekt RED’s closed beta for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game was slated to begin in September but has been delayed to allow for more polish. It will now take place on October 25th.
The developer stated, via community manager Marcin Momot on the official forums, that, “At E3 we announced that we’d launch the Closed Beta of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game in September. Unfortunately, we feel we need some extra time with the game before we hand it off to you for testing.
“We know we can make a first impression only once, and want to be sure everything is ready before we blast off. Delivering a good game is more important to us than keeping a deadline. Still, that doesn’t mean we don’t realize that delays can be disappointing, and we apologize for making you wait.”
The closed beta begins on Xbox One and PC first with PS4 joining later. Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will also be available to play at Gamescom 2016 which starts on August 17th.
