Join gaming leaders online at GamesBeat Summit Next this upcoming November 9-10. Learn more about what comes next.
Gwent started as a mini-game inside the 2015 role-playing game The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. It was popular enough to warrant a standalone version, which launched in October 2018 for PC after a long beta period. It came to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in December 2018.
Gwent isn’t competing with the digital card game giants, Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering Arena, but coming to mobile will help increase its audience. Hearthstone has been on mobile for years, but Arena is still only on PC.
While Hearthstone and Magic: The Gathering Arena have similar gameplay, Gwent is more a twist on the typical digital card game genre. It has you playing cards on a board with multiple rows, and Gwent has no mana system.
Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.
CD Projekt Red has not released details about a release for Android.
