CD Projekt RED Is ending support for one of its best games

CD Projekt RED Is ending support for one of its best games

CD Projekt RED have plenty of projects in the works, but it does mean they're having to shelve support on one classic game.

I’m not sure there’s a studio juggling as many projects as CD Projekt RED. Just a few weeks ago, CDPR shocked us all by revealing the entirety of their long-term slate. Please join me in a moment of silence for us games journalists who were suddenly thrust into breaking news overload.

We’re days away from getting our hands on The Witcher 3’s new-gen patch, plus Cyberpunk 2077’s Phantom Liberty DLC is set to release next year. There’s also a sequel to the game in the works, alongside a brand new Witcher trilogy, a remake of the original The Witcher, plus a standalone multiplayer title. With so many new projects on the go though, CDPR have decided to shelve support for one Witcher related title for good.

Speaking of Phantom Liberty, take a look at the trailer for the DLC below.

CD Projekt Red is officially sunsetting support for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game but don’t worry my Gwent-playing friends, the game will remain online indefinitely. It’s been confirmed that 2023 will bring new cards and esports tournaments but this will end in 2024. Gwent will then take a ‘community-focused approach.’

What does that mean exactly? Referred to as ‘Project Gwentfinity,’ Gwent will introduce a seasonal progression system. In a roadmap video, senior communication manager Pawel Burza explained that they’re “working on a solution” which will allow “players [to] make and vote on balance changes from within the Gwent client.” They confirmed though that this means no further cards will be added nor will new abilities be able to be reworked into old cards.

The remaining 72 cards will be released across April, July, and September 2023. Marking the end of an era, Burza tweeted, “The last seven years with Gwent were the best years of my professional career. [...] Let’s make 2023 as epic as possible.”
