If you skipped out on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, then you’ve never heard of Gwent. Gwent is a card game in the world of The Witcher, and folks play it at taverns all across the countryside. In-game, it’s a glorious distraction complete with its own wonderful strategies and unlocks. It was, put simply, a hit with fans.
CD Projekt RED has obviously been paying attention. As NerdLeaks, a relatively new site with an outstanding track record, noticed, the developer and publisher has trademarked Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, complete with logos. Here’s the trademark, via NerdLeaks.
CD Projekt RED will be at E3, though we don’t know what they’ll be showing. Before this leak, I figured we’d see Cyberpunk 2077. That could remain true, but it looks like Gwent might show up as well.
Could CD Projekt be going after Hearthstone? This trademark says yes. We’ll have more as it comes.
