As for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, it has you “clash with your friends in fast paced duels that combine bluffing, on-the-fly decision making and careful deck construction. Play your cards right and manage a three-row battle formation as you unleash your hand over a best-of-three series of rounds. With heroes, spells and special abilities that dramatically turn the tide of battle, deception and clever tricks will be necessary parts of your arsenal.”
CD Projekt RED has previously said that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will serve as the final entry in the series, with the developer moving on to other things following the last game’s release. While they’re hard at work on the side project Gwent, their next big undertaking is set to be the sci-fi epic Cyberpunk 2077. The release of that game is still a ways off, but the developer has said that it will be bigger than anything they have ever done before.
