Witcher card sport Gwent to wind down assist in 2023 – Destructoid
‘Gwenfinity’ to see gamers take management of meta
CD Projekt RED has introduced that it plans to start out sunsetting Gwent — the spin-off card sport from mega-popular RPG franchise The Witcher — in 2023. As of 2024, no additional playing cards will likely be produced for the digital tabletop title, with a complete of three expansions deliberate earlier than the deck closes for good.
“We’re not planning to launch new playing cards ranging from 2024, so the playing cards which can launch in 2023 principally would be the final brand-new ones that we are going to be including to the sport,” revealed Gwent director Vladimir Tortsov in a developer video. “It’s a reasonably vital change, there’s no method round it.
“With the playing cards that we’re planning so as to add to the sport subsequent 12 months, we’re principally planning to shut the cardboard pool with each concept that we wished so as to add, each mechanic that we wished to see, just about the whole lot that we want to see in Gwent, we’ll attempt to match it throughout the 12 months.”
This doesn’t, nevertheless, imply that Gwent will grow to be a useless, non-playable entity. In a movement identified to the studio as “Gwenfinity”, a skeleton crew will likely be assigned to routinely hold one eye on the sport’s infrastructure, whereas the gamers themselves will likely be supplied the chance to resolve upon rule modifications and steadiness tweaks because the Gwent meta continues, post-support.
With this new system, CDPR hopes that the Gwent group will be capable to proceed having fun with, and even evolving, the fantasy tabletop title. And so, whereas assist will formally finish in 2024, there’ll hopefully nonetheless be many, a few years of coin-tossing over tavern tables nonetheless to come back.
