If trademark registrations are anything to go by, it looks like CD Projekt RED is doing something we all hoped it would, and turning Gwent into a standalone card game. Given the runaway success of the real-world card decks, and the sort of response the game received within The Witcher 3, it just makes sense, right?
Spotted by the snoops at NerdLeaks, the new trademark has been registered with the European Union Intellectual Property Office, under categories relating to both video games and software.
If this is true (and there’s no reason really to suspect that it’s not), it would see Gwent joining an already-busy collection of card games, includng the freshly-announced Fable Fortune, currently sitting at £52,000 on Kickstarter.
CD Projekt RED has, of course, not said anything about the game at this stage, but it previously hinted that this year’s E3 would feature “a new type of video game format previously unexplored by the studio,” and we reckon a card game fits that bill nicely.
E3 kicks off in Los Angeles next Tuesday, June 14, we’re guessing we’ll hear more about Gwent (and CDPR’s other projects) from the show floor!
