CD Project reportedly developing standalone Gwent digital card game

CD Projekt, developers of The Witcher game series, will reportedly offer gamers a standalone version of the Gwent card game found in The Witcher 3. The company has apparently filed a new trademark and logo for such a game with the EU's Intellectual Property office.

From Nerdleaks:

The card game included in The Witcher 3 obtained a positive outcome, so much that Polish publisher decided to create a title for it. The trademark was filled with class 9 and 41 (video games, software, etc.) into the European Union Intellectual Property Office two days ago (June 6th), with what seems to be the official logo. Here are the two logos and trademark.

In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, players can participate in Gwent matches throughout the game world, using one of a number of decks. In each match, you'll receive 10 random cards pulled from your deck, and from there, you'll place one card per turn, with the strength points on each card adding to a player's total. The player with the most points wins.

It's not indicated in the trademark filing when we might see this standalone version of Gwent, nor the platforms on which we might play it.
