No Gwent on the go for you, Switch owners.
While CD Projekt RED has previously stated it doesn’t intend on supporting the Switch, choosing to focus instead on high end consoles and PC, you would think that stance would change with Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales. Unlike The Witcher 3 or the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, this game doesn’t look to be on the cutting edge, technically speaking. In fact, it’s a highly stylized card RPG, and it would be a great fit for the Switch’s hybrid nature.
The initial release is announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC—but what about a Switch launch? Could it be happening later, maybe? Eurogamer decided to reach out to CD Projekt RED and flat out ask them if a Switch launch was planned, and the answer was not very encouraging at all.
“There are no plans to release Thronebreaker on any other platforms than PC (GOG.COM), PlayStation 4 and Xbox One,” CD Projekt RED said. When prompted further to elaborate on why that might be so, they didn’t oblige.
So here we are, then—while The Elder Scrolls: Legends is due to come to Switch, players of Gwent will have to look to other platforms if they want to partake. Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC this year (tomorrow for PC, December 4 for the consoles).
