Gwent is a free-to-play card game popularized by The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It launched on Xbox One a few years ago and has since made it way to many other devices. Unfortunately, the game isn't as popular on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as it once was and CD Projekt RED has decided to discontinue support for the title. The company said the following on the game's website.
When we launched the console versions of Gwent back in 2017, our intention was to provide console players with the same level of support as their PC counterparts. However, 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. Considering that PC and mobile are the most popular platforms among Gwent players, we have made a tough decision: to discontinue support of console versions of the game. All Gwent players on consoles will be offered an option to copy their account progress and purchases from their current platform to a GOG account, which is used by both PC and mobile versions of the game. Starting from December 9... console players will be able to access a webpage where they can request to copy their progress from their console account to a new or existing GOG account... We're disabling all real-money purchases on consoles, starting today... matchmaking on consoles with other platforms will no longer be supported.
It's a shame that the game won't be playable on Xbox One soon. Be sure to transfer your account because you may lose everything if you forget. What do you think of this news? Let us know.
