CD Projekt Red has announced that it'll no longer be supporting the console versions of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game from the 9th December onward. The developer says that with the impending launch of the title on Android devices, and having just released Gwent on iOS, the company feels as though it simply won't be able to treat every platform fairly going forward.
"Considering that PC and mobile are the most popular platforms among Gwent players, we have made a tough decision: to discontinue support of console versions of the game," the developer writes. In other words, it sounds like Gwent just isn't very popular on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and CD Projekt Red's decided to cut the console versions loose so that it can focus on its strongest player counts.
There will be a system in place, however, that will allow console players to transfer their Gwent account over to PC and mobile: "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." You can find more information on how this works through here.
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.
