You made a standalone Gwent possible. Yes, you.
You wouldn’t think that CD Projekt RED would make a dedicated, standalone game for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s Gwent mini-game. But lo and behold, it happened and Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is a thing. According to CD Projekt co-founder Marcin Iwiński in an open letter, this was made possible thanks to the support of fans.
“Please allow me to say that one more time: I would like to thank all Wild Hunt/Gwent fans for supercharging us to make Gwent: The Witcher Card Game happen.
“Supercharging is a pretty good word, because the flood of emails, calls, forum posts, and everything else was simply crazy. There was a moment that literally everything was beeping, buzzing, vibrating and otherwise communicating one idea: Gwent or nothing. I mean, over 40 fan-made versions of Gwent were created, people printed their own cards, made real wooden playing boards – positive madness.”
The developer will be looking into feedback from fans especially with the upcoming beta. “Tell us what we should change and improve. You wanted us to make the game, now we’re kindly asking you to help us make it truly yours.”
Gwent: The Witcher Card Game will be out on PC and Xbox One.
