While GWENT: The Witcher Card Game has been playable for some time, the single-player campaign has been pushed back. On the game’s official website, Marcin Iwiński, co-founder of CD Projekt Red, explained the reasoning:
“We decided to increase the campaign’s scope and need more time to work on it. Shifting release windows is always something we approach seriously, however, we’ll never hesitate to do it if we feel you’ll get a better game as a result. I would like to apologize everyone who planned to play Thronebreaker over the Holidays — I assure you that we will do our best to make the final game worth the additional wait.”
While this is certainly a touch disappointing, given CD Projekt Red’s history I don’t think it’ll be a problem. I’d rather have to wait a little longer for a great product than be let down at launch. Hopefully we’ll get an exact release date some time soon.
In the meanwhile, if you haven’t jumped into the Open Beta yet, I recommend doing so. This is a great time to learn the cards, build your decks and figure out strategies before the single-player releases.
