In a new road-map for the company, which includes the studio behind last year's The Witcher 3 and digital distribution service GOG.com, Cyberpunk 2077 will be out 2017 at the earliest. With an almost comical release window of 2017-2021 given. But there will be "a new type of video game" coming from the studio sometime later this year. Which could very well be a standalone version of Gwent, the collectable card-game featured in The Witcher 3. Of course this is just a guess, but the document features some interesting clues pointing in this general direction.

In the document, bullet points covering some of the major highlights coming to GOG.com and its Galaxy application this year is the inclusion of networking capabilities to the service. In other words, multiplayer. Specifically for "new CD Projekt RED products." So, what could these products be? Well, using the powers of Sherlock Holmes-style deductive reasoning we can assume that this game will be a smaller offering from the studio, perhaps even something free-to-play.

As the document reiterates CD Projekt RED's commitment to creating expansive AAA RPG titles, this "new type of game" would kind of have to be something smaller. And taking Gwent as an example, being a sort of game within a game, that would be the perfect candidate to release as a standalone multiplayer title. The basic foundation is there, the mechanics solid, and the market already proven with something like Blizzard's Hearthstone. Gwent has also become somewhat of a fan favourite in recent months too, with numerous people recreating real-life versions on the game and several articles appearing all over the Internet talking about this one minor aspect of The Witcher 3.



The document also hints at a possible online AAA RPG coming the studio with word that expansion plans will effectively double the team size in the coming years and that intergrating online functionality into GOG services will play a major role in the next year or so. But, one thing for certain is that thanks to the success of The Withcer 3 (which will be getting a huge expansion this year) CD Projekt RED is not resting on its laurels and is actively working hard towards a bigger and brighter future.

I concur that this breakdown is most likely. And will play much mobile Gwent.
