CD Projekt red has delayed the release of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game‘s story-driven single-player campaign to 2018.
The campaign, titled Thronebreaker, was originally supposed to launch by the end of year and focuses on Meve, a war-veteran queen of two Northern Realms, as an imminent foreign invasion forces her to war.
“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,” the developer explained. “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.”
The developer also revealed that it will be rolling out new cards, challenges, vanity items, game patches, and balance tweaks more frequently in 2018 as the game prepares to leave beta.
Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is available now as a free download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
