Gwent is going bye bye, and so are the employees who worked on the free-to-play digital collectible card game.
CD Projekt Red has announced that it will be laying off the remaining 30 members of the Gwent team as development winds down on the Witcher spin-off. The layoffs are part of the studio's plans for Project GWENTfinity, which aims to allow fans to continue playing the card-battling game with ongoing support from the development team. As the transition progresses, the need for staff has diminished, and some team members have been reassigned to other projects. The 30 remaining members will be leaving CD Projekt Red by the end of 2023.
"It’s never easy to say goodbye," the company wrote. "And even though decisions like this are unavoidable and a natural result of the transition, we’d like to express our sincere thanks for all the contributions these team members have made to Gwent — just like the community, you helped make the game what it is today."
