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.

  • God I love those game. I mean the Gwent game. Always looking for opponent wherever I can in The Witcher 3.
  • I'm always in mood for Gwent
  • Gwent is one of the best inside game I've ever played. Most of my friends have skipped playing gwent but I played with every single person and collected all the cards. The music of this game is awesome. One of the best game I've ever played.
  • I called this months ago when they said they had an unannounced game being released this year.
  • Wonder if it will be free to play but you can buy "premium" cards to add to your decks
  • I wonder when CD Projekt (you misspelled in the title btw) will change their name. The spelling is odd internationally, and I don't think any of their releases are on CDs :D
  • Love this!
  • I guess this will give competition to Hearthstone? (Haven't played it so I'm not sure).
  • 10/10 will buy.
  • Will definitely play this! Of course, I'm still hoping for a physical release of the last couple decks (after I bought the physical CE of the game and Hearts in Stone) so I can continue to play more in real life.
