The team at CD Projekt Red already has plans to implement cross-platform play for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game between Xbox One and the PC -- and the only thing currently standing in the way of doing the same for PlayStation 4 is Sony.

Speaking to IGN, CEO Marcin Iwiński said that Microsoft is already on board with XB1/PC cross-platform play and, if Sony approves, they'll do the same for PS4:

We also do have a technical solution in place for PS4 and would love to add Sony’s platform to cross-play at the start of open beta. All we need is a green light from Sony.

That puts CD Projekt Red in a similar holding pattern as Psyonix, which is ready to pull the trigger on PS4 cross-platform play and just needs the go-ahead from Sony. Psyonix President Jerry Dunham doesn't think this is due to any reluctance on Sony's part but simply a matter of things taking a while to get done with such a large company; the same probably applies to Gwent's approval.

Are you looking forward to cross-platform play for Gwent?

Gonna be honest, played Gwent in Witcher 3, it's a really boring and trash game.

If you're smart you'll avoid it. The Devs are great, and I love the witcher series, but come on... it's really not that good of a card game, kinda boring really.

Unfortunately it is just another card game that is only about one thing and one thing only and that is money.
It is very simialr to HS with gambling ( spendign money on packs with random cards ) and a lot of other bad stuff they copied from that game.

Se expect big time pay to win, emotes, grinding, no real balance,zero improvements to the game etc.

Plus the game looks terible. Some kids defend these sad developers and say how they are not like all other scammers, but the truth is that they are. Sorry kids.
