Witcher 3's Card Game Gwent Getting Standalone Release, Possibly for Mobile


    Hooray! The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's in-game card game, Gwent, is getting a standalone version, it looks like. NerdLeaks discovered a European Union Intellectual Property Office trademark filing for something called Gwent: The Witcher Card Game.

     No platforms for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game were mentioned in the filing. However, during PAX East in April 2016, developers strongly indicated the game could come to mobile devices.
     A developer asked the audience to sound off on whether or not this was something they would want, recording a video of the audience's overwhelmingly positive and rousing response. The video was then taken back to CD Projekt Red's office in Poland to show to the team to possibly inspire them to bring Gwent to mobile devices. It appears it worked.

    It is possible this is the game that CD Projekt Red boss Marcin Iwinski alluded to in a recent interview, where he also suggested the project could be announced at E3.
