CD Projekt discontinuing support for Witcher card game Gwent on consoles

Starting today - that's the 4th December - all in-game purchases are being disabled on PS4, and then, on the 9th December, you'll no longer be able to play against others online.

In a nutshell: Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, a title based on the fantastic minigame found in The Witcher 3, is being shut down on consoles. Developer CD Projekt Red will be discontinuing support for the console versions of Gwent on December 9, 2019.

Gwent is one of the better free-to-play card games in an ever-growing sea of them, but to quote John Darnielle, "good things never last, bad things never die".

In an official announcement, the studio stated that it is struggling to support feature parity for the game across multiple platforms, particular with the recent iOS launch and the Android version on its way.

For those anxious if they'll lose their progress, GWENT has offered a solution: "All GWENT players on consoles will be offered an option to copy their account progress and purchases from their current platform to a GOG account, which is used by both PC and mobile versions of the game". Console players will need to move over to PC or mobile soon though.

The bad news is that gamers will only be able to copy progress to existing GOG accounts that do not have any GWENT progression on them at the time the request is made.

Milwaukee plays Detroit on 12-game win streak
He averaged 14.3 points in his three games as a reserve, after being sidelined for seven games with a bruised left thigh. In November, the Bucks played 16 games and won 15 of them, outscoring their opponents by 209 points - 1,928 to 1,719.

The option to copy progress over will go live on December 9th.

Starting December 9th, players will be able to copy their ornaments, cards, deck lists, account level, rank, contracts, and Thronebreaker rewards to new or existing GOG accounts. The console version was also released in 2017 and has received the same amount of support as PC.

But after December 9, consoles will no longer receive new content nor updates. As such, all PlayStation 4 players will have to spend their Meteorite Powder prior to requesting an account copy-over.

CDPR says this process will be available from December 9, 2019 through August 9, 2020.

Console versions of Gwent will be updated on the 9th to "freeze [the game] in its current state".

CDPR explained that due to the number of platforms GWENT is now available on; they had to make some cutbacks.
