CD Projekt Red’s The Witcher trilogy has met its send, but the spin-off GWENT continues to be in development. The standalone card game went through a major overhaul with big graphic changes.

GWENT also became even more portable with a mobile release on iOS, with Android devices in progress. Unfortunately, the news came with the announcement that console support was ending.

CD Projekt Red also released a story-driven GWENT spin-off called The Witcher Tales. The first game, called Thronebreaker, put players in control of Queen Meve.

According to the official Steam page: “Thronebreaker is a single-player role-playing game set in the world of The Witcher that combines narrative-driven exploration with unique puzzles and card battle mechanics. Crafted by the developers responsible for some of the most iconic moments in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, the game spins a truly regal tale of Meve, a war-veteran and queen of two Northern Realms — Lyria and Rivia. Facing an imminent Nilfgaardian invasion, Meve is forced to once again enter the warpath and set out on a dark journey of destruction and revenge.”

The release of Thronebreaker was complicated. CD Projekt Red first made it a platform exclusive title on its digital platform GoG. The launch wasn’t very successful, which later led to a release on Steam, and finally consoles.

The highlight of The Witcher Tales was that it would give fans of the series a look into other characters in the novels and games. Queen Meve and her friends were barely mentioned in the games, and she only had a small role in the novels. Fans hoped the series would put them in control of other side characters in the game.

GWENT is still going strong, even with the end of console support. GWENT’s Community Manager Pawel Burza and Game Director Jason Slama recently held a live stream explaining the future roadmap of the game.

When asked if there would be a second The Witcher Tales game, both men stated “No.” They also mentioned that they previously stated there wouldn’t be a sequel, but this was the first time hearing that there would be no more tales.

Although the news is disappointing, this isn’t the end of The Witcher media. Netflix’s The Witcher live-action adaptation comes later this month. CD Projekt Red’s next big project, Cyberpunk 2077, is also scheduled for launch in 2020.
