GWENT: The Witcher Card Games is going to enter closed beta in October rather than the previously stated month of September, CD Projekt RED has announced.
According to the developer, more time is needed before the game is ready to be released for the public. “We know we can make a first impression only once, and want to be sure everything is ready before we blast off,” said CD Projekt Red. “Delivering a good game is more important to us than keeping a deadline.”
An additional month’s wait doesn’t sound too bad; nonetheless, the developer apologized for being unable to meet the previous deadline and forcing fans to wait a while longer.
GWENT is now officially pegged to enter closed beta on October 25 for Xbox One and PC. Those interested in participating can register themselves at PlayGwent.com for a spot. However, it’s not guaranteed that everyone will get in.
The collectible card game is also coming to PlayStation 4 but there’s still no word on a beta test for Sony’s current-gen platform. Recalling the developer’s previous statement, a beta for PlayStation 4 will “join the battlefield a bit later.” Perhaps PlayStation 4 owners will begin dealing cards a couple of weeks or a month afterwards the Xbox One and PC players are done.
Announced at Microsoft’s E3 2016 press conference with a live-action trailer, GWENT: The Witcher Card Game is going to feature a complete single-player campaign with the obvious support for multiplayer play. Importantly, the polish developer confirmed that it will try to get cross-play support for multiplayer across all platforms.
Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is going to release later this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
