CD Projekt RED has announced they’re discontinuing support for the consoles versions of GWENT: The Witcher Card Game next week.
The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game will have support cut off on December 9th, and users will have the option to copy their progress and purchases from their current platform to a GOG account, which is used on the Windows PC and mobile versions.
CD Projekt noted the recent launch of the iOS version and the forthcoming Android version have made it difficult to plan and support all the available platforms. They noted PC and mobile are the most popular platforms, so they decided to pull the plug on the console versions.
Here’s a rundown on how the migration works:
Starting from December 9, 2019, console players will be able to access a web page where they can request to copy their progress from their console account to a new or existing GOG account. Since we do not support the “merging” of accounts, we 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.
This account-copying process will be available for a period of six months—from December 9, 2019 to June 9, 2020. On December 9, 2019, we will release an update which will essentially freeze GWENT in its current state. From this point onwards, both console versions will be operational up until June 9, 2020. Until that time, their functionality will be limited. For example:
- There will be no regular updates for console versions starting with the December 9, 2019 update.
- Future expansions and additional content won’t be released on consoles.
- We’re disabling all real-money purchases on consoles, starting today. After the December 9, 2019 update, matchmaking on consoles with other platforms will no longer be supported.
What progress will be copied:
- All collected ornaments
- Meteorite Powder (only applies to Xbox One players*)
- All other currencies
- Deck lists
- Account level
- Current Rank
- Thronebreaker rewards
*Unfortunately, transferring Meteorite Powder from PlayStation 4 to GOG is not possible. PlayStation 4 players will have to spend their Meteorite Powder before requesting the account-copying process to ensure that its equivalent value can carry over.
We will share more details about the process once the account-copying request web page goes live on December 9, 2019.
