Imagine when the mini-game that you concocted for your main game turns out to be super popular and loved by fans. Where this popularity is too dear not to be exploited into a separate game, which ends up giving birth to its own fan base. This is what CD Projekt Red managed to achieve with GWENT, the card game that was first attached to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and even became a meme because of the addiction it can offer. After being a separate product for a long time with solid support, GWENT will no longer be a priority for CDPR starting in 2024.
This was confirmed by the director – Vladimir Tortsov in GWENT’s latest video. This card game is certain to continue to receive support throughout 2023, where the developer will try to inject more cards, new mechanics, and whatever things they have implemented so far. This support will end in 2024. However, GWENT will not die immediately. CDPR plans to hand over the life of GWENT after 2024 to the community in full, although it’s still unclear how that will work.
GWENT will no longer be supported by CD Projekt starting in 2024.
CDPR also confirmed that there will be a small team that will continue to work on and refine GWENT, but most of the team has now been shifted to work on other projects. How about you? Actively playing this one game?
