Gwent's Single-Player Campaign is Now a New, 30-Hour Witcher Spinoff

Gwent's Single-Player Campaign is Now a New, 30-Hour Witcher Spinoff

It's still kind of a card game though.

Gwent's single-player experience, Thronebreaker, is now a standalone experience independent of Gwent. As a result, Thronebreaker is ditching the Gwent name and is now being called, Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales.

CD Projekt Red is boasting 30 hours of story-driven gameplay, though it will retain the Gwent-based gameplay. Gwent being the fictional card game played inside the Witcher universe that CD Projekt Red is developing into a full-fledged, free-to-play trading card game. Thronebreaker was meant to be a single-player campaign for that game before the change of plans.

During a financial presentation, CD Projekt Red announced the separation of the two projects. Actions will still be resolved using Gwent, but CD Projekt Red is saying that the story mode will now be a priced standalone game that offers fans of The Witcher universe a new story-driven adventure.

CD Projekt Red did not announce a price or release date, but I'm sure we'll hear more once there's an official announcement. In the meantime, CD Projekt Red is revamping development on Gwent while all attention is focused on the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077, which we have a guide for.
