Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is coming to an end on consoles

Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is coming to an end on consoles

CDPR are already disabling purchases on consoles which use real money, and say that after the December 9th update, matchmaking on consoles with other platforms will also no longer be supported.

It's no surprise that Gwent, The Witcher card game, is most popular on PC and iOS: the game's hardcore competitive scene is on PC, while mobile is a lot more convenient for everyone else. No more content will be released, including future expansions. Now, just a year after its console launch, CD Projekt RED is pulling the plug on that version of the game.

However, all console players will still have the option to transfer their current account progress and purchases from their console to a GOG account; the account used by PC and mobile versions.

Gwent is one of the better free-to-play card games in an ever-growing sea of them, but to quote John Darnielle, "good things never last, bad things never die". GWENT recently launched on iOS devices, with an Android version in the works. Moreover, PS4 players need to spend their powder before transferring their progress if they want to keep the "equivalent value".

"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", the company said.

This doesn't mean console players are entirely out of luck. Since we do not support the "merging" of accounts, we will only be able to copy progress to existing GOG accounts that do not have any GWENT progression on them at the time the request is made.

Tiger Woods , by the closest reports I can find, is worth somewhere between $800 million and a cool billion. "You'll be OK. There are also a lot of other top players that are going to be playing that particular week.

No more regular updates for console versions. Plus, you will no longer be able to matchmake with those on other platforms.

This account-copying process will be available for a period of 6 months - from 09/12/2019 to 09/06/2020.

Console versions of Gwent will be updated on the 9th to "freeze [the game] in its current state".

The progress transfer is the same for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, except for one major item: Meteorite Powder.

CDPR explained that due to the number of platforms GWENT is now available on; they had to make some cutbacks.
