Witcher 3 Dev Teasing Something With Massive E3 Poster

What could it be?

62 Comments

We have already heard rumblings that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red might announce a new game at E3 2016, and now, that is looking more likely.

GameSpot is now on the ground in Los Angeles for E3, and we snapped the photo below of a massive poster from CD Projekt Red hung on the Figueroa Hotel. As you can see, the poster is incomplete; perhaps the rest will be revealed in the coming days.

No Caption Provided

Earlier this week, it was revealed that CD Projekt Red trademarked "Gwent: The Card Game," with the suggestion being that it could be for a standalone version for mobile devices. Gwent is the name of the popular in-game card game from The Witcher 3.

It is possible this is the game that CD Projekt Red boss Marcin Iwinski alluded to in a recent interview, where he also suggested the project could be announced at E3.

CD Projekt said previously that it would announce or possibly launch a new game in 2016. Interestingly, this would be a "new type of video game format previously unexplored by the studio." A standalone version of Gwent for mobile devices would fit that description.

The developer's latest game is The Witcher 3, which recently received its final expansion, Blood and Wine. CD Projekt Red is also working on Cyberpunk 2077, but the developer is not going to show more of this game at E3 2016 because there is too much work still to do.

In other news related to CD Projekt Red, the developer's GOG online store recently kicked off its annual Summer Sale. You can learn more about it here.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.

It is beyond obvious that this is Gwent. Think about it. CD Projekt Red is a small studio, at least compared to big dev teams like Ubisoft, EA and others. So having a HUGE title like Cyberpunk coming out in a few years, they'll have nearly all hands on deck for that game. Leaving a small team who is mostly done their work on it, since not all team members are needed for every aspect of a game. So a small game like Gwent is easy to find time to complete, and there is a huge demand for it, regardless of if you like it or not, I do, in fact I have all 4 decks IRL and a game board printed out for RL play. The other HUGE hint is that everyone seems gathered around a table, and where is gwent played at? A table. Everyone is also dressed as famous Witcher characters since when you place down their card in game, you BECOME them, in a sense. Also, the fact a LOGO leaked as well as a few other big hints, it, as I have said, is beyond obvious this is Gwent: The Card Game.

Notice that everyone in the poster are random people using cosplay of Witcher characters. Might be Gwent and they decided to do some weird marketing using cosplay, or it might be something they are doing that involve cosplay. The Witcher facebook page surely love to post cosplay, so it isn't hard to imagine that they are doing something for that crowd.

keep Gwent in Witcher games. Having gwent standalone makes it less special in-game.

I had fun with Gwent, but not what I would want to see. I would love a game based in the same universe, but maybe going with a sorcery character. Anyway, just a thought.

Peace

@mari3k: I don't think so. The Witcher Battle Arena was MOBA-like game - servers were shutdown in the end of 2015.

Hope its not Gwent. As much as I find it a nice distraction, it will be very disappointing if these ad is about Gwent.

Gwent for mobile phone would be great. Of course cyberpunk would be nice either.

Very unlikely. If it's online Gwent, it'll be on PC too.

Gwent was alright as a mini-game but Im not sure if Id be interested in paying for more of it. Though I do remember many people really loved it.

that's a ton of wall space for a crappy card game. cdpr is obviously bad at managing their budget.

@Supabul: 2 doesn't need remastering, a port for current gen sounds like a good idea , 1 on the other hand...

Hmm...maybe they're release the pre-downgraded version of Witcher 3 which was shown back in 2013 as it was originally intended? One can hope.

Gwent was an awesome mini game in witcher 3 but it is going to be difficult going against the likes of Hearthstone because it isn't deep enough or balanced enough for pvp.
