Trademark Filing Appears for Standalone Version of The Witcher 3's Gwent Card Game
On top of the critical acclaim and huge sales for CD Projekt RED’s The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt last year, one of the most beloved elements of the game was its in-game CCG Gwent, which now appears to be entering the realm of online card gaming with a standalone release.
A report by NerdLeaks has revealed that developer CD Projekt RED has filed a trademark for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, an apparent standalone version of the popular in-game CCG from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
The trademark filing was made through the European Union Intellectual Property Office (dated on June 6th), which has been filled through class 9 and 41 (for video game and software classification), with the filing having also having a logo for the game.
No other specific details on the title have been revealed at this time, though the likelihood of CD Projekt RED developing a standalone version of the card game shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise given its very positive reception in The Witcher 3.
Official confirmation from CD Projekt RED hasn’t come at this time, though with E3 2016 just around the corner, it does seem likely this could be one of the studio’s big announcements to come during the event next week: stay tuned in the meantime as news develops.
