Console support for Witcher card game Gwent will be discontinued

The Witcher card game Gwent was initially released back in 2017, an answer from CD Projekt Red after the card game during the Witcher 3 got almost insanely popular among fans. It let players go up against one another using their favourite decks, as well as allowing those who like to collect a chance to find and add their heroes to the collection.

Unfortunately, Gwent is no longer going to be supported on consoles and will be fully discontinued on Monday, the 9th of December. A decision that if, like us, you were playing Gwent on console, seems to come out of the blue.

However, CD Projekt Red explained the decision in an official statement on the Gwent website. The statement reads like so:

“Having just launched Gwent on iOS, and with the Android version coming, the number of supported platforms would significantly increase.” They continued, “looking to the future, we do not believe we can support a growing number of different versions while improving feature parity between them.

“Considering that PC and mobile are the most popular platforms among players, we have made a tough decision: to discontinue support of console versions of the game.”

But all is not lost for console players. While the game is more popular on mobile and PC, all console Gwent players will be able to transfer their progress onto a GOG account, which is supported on PC and mobile. This copying-over process will be available for 6 months, so we advise you carry over that progress as quick as possible, just in case you forget.

Outside of the transfer process, CD Projekt Red stated the following changes that would happen to the console version of Gwent on the 9th of December.

  • There will be no regular updates for console versions starting with the December 9th update
  • Future expansions and additional content won’t be released on consoles
  • We’re disabling all real-money purchases on consoles, starting today
  • After the December 9th, 2019 update, matchmaking on consoles with other platforms will no longer be supported
