CD Projekt Red has revealed that on December 9 it will stop supporting GWENT, the Witcher-themed card game, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
In an announcement on the official GWENT website, the developer further explained why it’s made this decision.
“Having just launched GWENT on iOS, and with the Android version coming, the number of supported platforms would significantly increase. 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,” says CD Projekt Red in the statement.
So starting on Monday, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 won’t receive regular updates or new content anymore, the in-app purchases won’t be possible, and matchmaking with other platforms will no longer be an option.
However, the developer gives Xbox One and PS4 players the option to transfer their progress over to the PC or mobile version of the game, if they want to. To do this, they will need to have a GOG account that doesn’t have any GWENT progress on them.
This transfer can be made from December 9, 2019, until June 9, 2020. Players can copy all collected ornaments, all other currencies, cards, deck lists, account level, current rank, Thronebreaker rewards, and contracts. However, Meteorite Powder transfer only applies to Xbox One players.
GWENT was launched for iOS on October 29, and the Android version is planned for the first part of 2020.
