Developer CD Projekt Red has reportedly pushed the announced September release of the much awaited closed beta for “Gwent: The Witcher Card Game,” to another month.
“At E3 we announced that we’d launch the Closed Beta of GWENT: The Witcher Card Game in September. Unfortunately, we feel we need some extra time with the game before we hand it off to you for testing,” the Gwent team announcement reads.
“We know we can make a first impression only once, and want to be sure everything is ready before we blast off. Delivering a good game is more important to us than keeping a deadline. Still, that doesn’t mean we don’t realize that delays can be disappointing, and we apologize for making you wait. The Closed Beta will now begin on October 25th,” the team added.
Initially Gwent was introduced in “The Witcher3: Wild Hunt,” as an optional activity. But later, CD Projekt Red decided to work on a standalone version of Gwent, having received thousands of requests.
The spin-off of the famous mini game in “The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” was one of the biggest announcements at the E3 2016. The game was announced as a part of Microsoft’s E3 press conference, revealing that the Xbox One and Windows PC gamers, will get it first, with the PlayStation 4 version to follow.
However, CD Projekt Red is still planning to show off the game at the upcoming Gamescom from August 17th to August 21st. Gamers can get their first ever public hands on experience on the game by sitting down for a round, even before the closed beta starts.
Nevertheless, the registration for “Gwent: The Witcher Card Game,” closed beta is still open, at the Gwent Website.
