GWENT Will Discontinue Support on Consoles

GWENT Will Discontinue Support on Consoles

CD Projekt RED has announced it will end support for the console versions of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game on December 9. The announcement will be made during a Twitch stream later this week, but some important news came early.

On the official GWENT website, CDPR announced that they were canceling console support.

It follows the news that Gwent is shutting down on PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

GWENT was released as a standalone multiplayer game in 2017 and has gone through several overhauls. With the release of Gwent on iOS a few months ago and an Android version coming soon - as well as the eighth-generation consoles moving into the gaming retirement home - it's not really a surprise to see these versions get the ax.

Gwent will be available to play in 2020 on iOS, Android and PC platforms.

The Winter Meetings are fast approaching and Gerrit Cole being in the Dodgers' minds and vice versa is some spectacular news. He is likely to break the record for a contract given to a pitcher this winter, a deal possibly north of $250 million.

The company stated it was discontinuing support for the console versions of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game due to the increase of supported platforms and the fact PC and mobile were the most popular platforms.

If you play Gwent on console, you might fear for your in-game progress. All Gwent console players will be offered an option to copy their account progress and purchases from their current platform to a GOG account, which can then be transferred to a PC or mobile version of the game.

On the 12th of December, an update will be released for Gwent on consoles that will effectively "freeze" Gwent in its current state. CDPR does caution that accounts cannot be merged, so only accounts with no GWENT content can be copied over. CDPR added that it is also immediately disabling all real-money purchases on consoles. As such, all PlayStation 4 players will have to spend their Meteorite Powder prior to requesting an account copy-over. This coming Monday, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Gwent will cease receiving updates. However, player progress can only be transferred to an existing GOG account if it doesn't already have Gwent progress on there.

Players will be able to copy their progress over from the 9th of December, 2019, until the 9th of June, 2020.
