Gwent Android release update as PS4 and Xbox Witcher fans get bad news

The Gwent Android release date could still be a few months away, even with CD Projekt RED revealing that it’s “coming soon”.

Following the launch of Gwent on ios mobile devices, we learnt a little about the new launch schedule.

And this new roadmap also includes some bad news for Gwent fans currently playing on PS4 and Xbox One.

WHEN IS THE GWENT ANDROID RELEASE DATE?

For now, CD Projekt RED has not provided an exact Gwent Android release date for fans to follow.

The game is currently available to play on PS4, Xbox One, PC and iOS, but changes are coming.

The good news is that the Gwent Android release has been confirmed for Q1 2020.

That means Gwent fans using Android devices could have access to the game as soon as January 1, 2020.

The downside is that CD Projekt could also elect to launch closer to the end of Q1 2020, that being March 31.

So fans will have to keep an eye out for the latest Gwent roadmap being shared by the development team.

It follows the news that Gwent is shutting down on PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

The team made the announcement today, revealing that most players can be found on Mobile and PC.

“When we launched the console versions of GWENT back in 2017, our intention was to provide console players with the same level of support as their PC counterparts,” a message from CD Projekt explains.

“However, having just launched GWENT on iOS, and with the Android version coming, the number of supported platforms would significantly increase.

“Looking to the future, we do not believe we can support a growing number of different versions of GWENT while improving feature parity between them.

“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.

“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.”

CD Projekt says Witcher fans on PS4 and Xbox One will be able to access a webpage where they can request to copy their progress from their console account to a new or existing GOG account, starting December 9.

The bad news is that gamers 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 6 months, with regular updates set to end on consoles on December 9.

“There will be no regular updates for console versions starting with the December 9th update,” a message from CD Projekt explains.

“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 9th, 2019 update, matchmaking on consoles with other platforms will no longer be supported.”

Gwent will be available to play in 2020 on iOS, Android and PC platforms.
