Witcher 3's Card Game Gwent Getting Standalone Release, Possibly for Mobile - Report

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game could be on the way.

32 Comments

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's in-game card game, Gwent, is getting a standalone version, it looks like. NerdLeaks discovered a European Union Intellectual Property Office trademark filing for something called Gwent: The Witcher Card Game.

The filing also contained the image below, which could be the game's logo.

No Caption Provided

No platforms for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game were mentioned in the filing. However, during PAX East in April 2016, developers strongly suggested the game could come to mobile devices.

A developer asked the audience to sound off on whether or not this was something they would want, recording a video of the audience's overwhelmingly positive and rousing response. The video was then taken back to CD Projekt Red's office in Poland to show to the team to possibly inspire them to bring Gwent to mobile devices. It appears it worked.

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 today kicked off its annual Summer Sale. You can learn more about it here.

@so_hai: there's plenty of other options out there to play instead. Try Dragon Age perhaps.

The card game in Red Dead Redemption (edit: I mean Fallout: New Vegas actually) is better. I forget what it's called (edit: it's Caravan).

I absolutely love Gwent and wish that they'd make a physical release of the game for me to buy.

But at the same time if this is the 2016 new game announcement at E3 it's going to be a massive disappointment for me.

Release an actual Gwent board to go along with the physical decks. I would buy that in a second.

@aross2004: I'm not sure how the physical version gameplay would handle playing Dijkstra. If it isn't played back against me, how would I get it back *nicely*?

@Saladudo: And how interesting would it get if you play a deck that has a lot of cards with "muster"!?!

bring it to consoles and have an online feature where you can play against Other people (cross platform play as well) and make it around 10 dollars. You do all this you got my money no questions asked

@jako998: It would probably be cheaper than that considering it will probably come out on mobile devices but yes I would like to play this on my PS4 or PC
