Gwent: The Witcher Card Game is coming to an end on consoles

They add that since PC and mobile seem to be the most popular platforms on which players choose to play Gwent, it's console versions that are having their support discontinued.

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

On the official GWENT website, CDPR announced that they were canceling console support.

CD Projekt Red has announced that it'll no longer be supporting the console versions of Gwent: The Witcher Card Game from the 9th December onward.

Gwent is one of the better free-to-play card games in an ever-growing sea of them, but to quote John Darnielle, "good things never last, bad things never die". "Looking to the future, we do not believe we can support a growing number of different versions while improving feature parity between them".

This doesn't mean console players are entirely out of luck. In other words, it sounds like Gwent just isn't very popular on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and CD Projekt Red's chose to cut the console versions loose so that it can focus on its strongest player counts.

Morrone added that it's still "frustrating" because she felt people should always have, 'an identity besides who you're dating'. After that piece was debunked by Gossip Cop , DiCaprio was spotted several times with his actual girlfriend, Camila Morrone .

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.

The progress transfer is the same for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, except for one major item: Meteorite Powder.

The transfer includes one more caveat: you can only shift your progress to a GOG account that isn't connected to Gwent.

Players will be able to copy their progress over from the 9th of December, 2019, until the 9th of June, 2020.

The option to copy progress over will go live on December 9th. CDPR plans to release an update to the console version of Gwent on December 9 that locks the current version in place, and console versions of Gwent will still function (in their limited capacity) "up until August 6, 2020".

Real-money purchases on the console versions have already been disabled, and on December 9, a patch will hit those versions that'll "freeze GWENT in its current state".
