Bringing to life one of the most addictive parts of The Witcher 3: Wild HuntGWENT‘s standalone version of The Witcher‘s signature card game is seeking to give players something meaty with its upcoming single-player campaign “Thronebreaker,” while unfortunately players might just have to wait a little bit longer before they can actually play the new story.

In a blog post from developer CD Projekt RED, the studio announced that the release for GWENT‘s single-player campaign has been pushed into 2018, with the company stating specifically that this was done to “increase the campaign’s scope,” which will require additional development time on the project.

While the studio said that “shifting release windows is always something we approach seriously,” CD Projekt insisted that “we’ll never hesitate to do it if we feel you’ll get a better game as a result,” and added that “we will do our best to make the final game worth the additional wait.”

In addition to the updated release window for “Thronebreaker,” CD Projekt also explained that players of the digital card game can expect the studio “increasing the temp of multiplayer update releases” in preparation for the game’s exit from beta sometime next year. Specifically, these updates will include new cards, challenges, vanity items, and much more on top of patches and other balancing.

GWENT is currently available on PC and Xbox One in beta, while the full release for the game is planned for those systems (in addition to PS4) sometime in 2018.
