CD Projekt RED weren't lying when they said that though the story of Geralt of Rivia was now over, there's lots more in store for The Witcher universe, far as they are concerned. Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is their first such project.
If you're wondering what the hell is Thronebreaker all of a sudden, you might be slightly disappointed to learn that this is the title of Gwent's singleplayer campaign. But wait! CD Projekt RED have now expanded this mode of play into a fully-featured standalone RPG, quests and all!
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is now confirmed to be a fully-fledged RPG, and a standalone release that will be completely separate from Gwent. This comes hand-in-hand with it being a proper purchasable game, mind.
The game will have a decently lengthy 30-hour campaign, the main decisions, combat, and events of which will be decided with - you've guessed it - rounds of Gwent. Though this lines up with what the original plan for the title was set to offer, the scope of the project has changed considerably.
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is planned to launch alongside the actual Gwent game, though there's no word on a concrete release date just yet. Disappointed? Angry? Thrilled? Lots to process, to be sure, but the devs might be onto something here. We'll see.
