CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwiński has announced Thronebreaker the Gwent single player campaign story content has been delayed and will now be released sometime during 2018. To recap Thronebreaker was expected to be made available before the end of 2017 and tells the tale of Meve, a war-veteran queen of two Northern Realms, who embarks “on a dark journey of destruction and revenge” as an imminent foreign invasion looms. Thronebreaker is set in a previously unseen part of the Witcher world, and features quests, resource gathering, and custom-made story battles. Check out the teaser trailer below to learn more about what you can expect from the Gwent story mode.
We’ve decided to introduce changes to GWENT’s development roadmap, and I’d like to take a brief moment of your time to share them with you.
Thronebreaker, GWENT’s story-driven single player campaign, is moving to 2018. 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.
Secondly, since 2018 is the year we plan to take GWENT out of beta, we’ll be increasing the tempo of multiplayer update releases. We want you to have more fun playing, but we also want to welcome new gamers into an already rolling multiplayer ecosystem. Expect content additions like cards, challenges, vanity items, but also game patches, and balance tweaks to be published more frequently.
As soon as more details about a confirmed release date announced by CD Projekt Red we will keep you up to speed as always.
