The Witcher 3's Gwent may become its own standalone game

A trademark for Gwent The Witcher Card Game may have tipped us off to the popular collectible card game's upcoming standalone release.

CD Projekt Red is expected to announce a standalone version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt’s questionably popular card game, Gwent, called Gwent The Witcher Card Game.

According to NerdLeaks, a new trademark and logo for Gwent The Witcher Card Game was registered by CD Projekt Red on June 6th into the European Union Intellectual Property Office. Given the timing of the trademark filing, we’re sure the developer is planning to make its announcement sometime during E3, which takes place next week.

Considering CD Projekt Red is prepared to release a full-fledged Gwent game outside of The Witcher 3 world, the company must have realized it had a hit on its hands shortly after the game’s release. While we don’t think it’ll dethrone the current king of collectible card games, Hearthstone, we’re sure fans of The Witcher 3 will enjoy their time with the game, although we have a feeling all of the cards you collected in The Witcher 3 won’t be transferrable.


Although if they are transferrable, then that could be a step in the right direction to get fans of the game to play its standalone version.

      I loved gwent, actually got too into the game. Burned me out on the game because I didn't want to miss opportunities to play and earn new cards.

      I hate Gwent, but they should have done this sooner to follow the initial hype

        Probably took a while to rebalance the entire game to make it into a competitive thing that might work in a PvP setting.

      I barely touched Gwent but not because I disliked it. Rather, because I knew I'd love it and play it for dozens of hours.

      I'd love a proper Gwent game. Doubly so for a physical card version. A LCG version of Gwent would be great - because I refuse to get into CCG's again. Something with deckbuilding like Netrunner, maybe ('faction" points and such).

        Whats funny too is that FFG has made other Witcher games too, but I guess CDPR wanted to keep the Gwent decks for the CE's and what not. But yea I would have loved a deckbuilding LCG

      I enjoyed Gwent and collecting the cards for it, when at first I didn't care for it (wanted to explore the world more.) But it got too easy, even on Hard difficulty, once you got a decent number of cards in your collection. Hopefully they make the new game more complex and difficult.
