CD Projekt RED has revealed that they’ll be spinning-off their single-player story campaign for GWENT, also known as Thronebreaker, into a standalone experience.
The company revealed that GWENT‘s Thronebreaker campaign has now evolved into an over 30 hour RPG, so to make the most of it, it’ll be its own title. The campaign was set to launch into the free-to-play game back in 2017 but has since been pushed back into 2018.
The company announced this news in their H1 2018 financial results. They also revealed that Thronebreaker will now be called Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, and will now be a full-scale RPG. It’ll also have meaningful choices and consequences all of which are decided by the outcome of GWENT games.
CD Projekt RED didn’t reveal a release date for Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales but did say that it’ll launch alongside the upcoming GWENT overhaul, which is expected in Q4 2018. They also didn’t reveal whether Thronebreaker will be launching as a free-to-play title like GWENT, or whether it’ll become a premium title.
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is set to land on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
