In a surprise bit of news, it looks like we're getting a new singleplayer Gwent game set in The Witcher universe. It's called Project Golden Nekker and it's currently set to launch in 2022 as a "captivating single-player experience" that is different from other incarnations of the digital card game. That means it'll be different from the versions found in 2015's The Witcher 3 and 2018's Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales and Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. Players also won't have to own any other versions of Gwent to get the full experience that will be found in Project Golden Nekker.
“It’s not another Witcher Tales [game] but something different,” Gwent Comms Lead Paweł Burza told IGN. “We’re aiming to provide a captivating single-player for players who prefer it over competitive multiplayer Gwent.” "We want to announce stuff that we’re working on when the time is right," continuing, “I’m really excited about this project coming together and I hope you like it as much as I do.”
When Thronebreaker was originally released, its cards were added in Gwent, so players can expect to experience both the cards in Project Golden Nekker and then Gwent, possibly at the same time. The 2022 Gwent roadmap has new cards releasing in April, July, October, and December 2022, and most Witcher titles have been released in May or October in the past, so it's a decent bet to say that October 2022 is a fairly likely release date target for this new single-player Gwent experience alongside the new cards.
