CD Projekt RED has taken to their blog to announce that they will be pulling Gwent: The Witcher Card Game from consoles starting next week.
The news comes to many of us as a surprise, however, the developers state that the game’s activity on consoles is absurdly low. In response to that, the developers decided to remove the game from the platform, so it gives them the time and energy to focus on the platforms that do bring in players — PC and mobile.
Check out the official announcement from CD Projekt RED down below:
Dear GWENT players,
When we launched the console versions of GWENT back in 2017, our intention was to provide console players with the same level of support as their PC counterparts. However, having just launched GWENT on iOS, and with the Android version coming, the number of supported platforms would significantly increase. Looking to the future, we do not believe we can support a growing number of different versions of GWENT while improving feature parity between them.
Considering that PC and mobile are the most popular platforms among GWENT players, we have made a tough decision: to discontinue support of console versions of the game. All GWENT players on consoles will be offered an option to copy their account progress and purchases from their current platform to a GOG account, which is used by both PC and mobile versions of the game.
In related Witcher news, thanks to a new interview with Jimmy Kimmel, the star of the upcoming series — Henry Cavill — shared a new scene from the show.
The fight scene if short, but it is surely epic. Cavill seems to have the posture of Geralt down to the tee and the action looks to be on point too. Showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich stated plenty of times before that Cavill was born to play the role, and with them setting up for multiple seasons, hopefully, the community thinks the same. However, just with the short video showcased, the show looks very promising. Make sure to check out the epic fight scene right here!
Gwent is set to be pulled from consoles starting next week. If you play on PC or mobile, no need to worry as the developers will continue to support those platforms. How do you feel about the developers pulling the game from consoles? Let us know in the comments below!
