After the very successful finale to Geralt’s story, CD Project RED has set their eyes on Cyberpunk 2077. But that doesn’t mean they are forgetting The Witcher. In a latest announcement at E3 2016, CD Project RED announced that a standalone version of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is in development. From what we know so far, the game is going to be not just a port and is getting a full triple-A title treatment.
Lead designer Damien Monnier has shared some insight on the game’s development.
“The fact that it’s happening in itself, to be honest with you. Originally, there were very few of us working on it. It started with two of us, the original one. The fact that fans asked for it, the fact that the team was behind it…I was telling you [earlier] about the lead quest, lead writer, artists; we went to these people, because it wasn’t just my call. Of course, I wanted to make a standalone,” said Monnier.
“But, how can I do it without the team behind us? And, not only that, I’m super proud that as we approached all these people, they all said how we’re going to do it, and we’re going to do an excellent job. People were expecting a simple port, we’re doing a AAA. I can promise you that. I’m proud of the team.”
In addition to this the entire voice acting cast of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is re-assembling for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. The title is being considered as of the main installments in the franchise.
