At E3 2016 The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt developer CD Projekt Red announced that it's working on a standalone Gwent title for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. It was supposed to enter closed beta for the former two platforms in September, but players will now have to wait until October 25th to get their hands on the virtual card game. In a statement, the studio said it still needs a little more time to work on Gwent before it feels comfortable letting the public play.

"We know we can make a first impression only once, and want to be sure everything is ready before we blast off," CD Projekt Red said. "Delivering a good game is more important to us than keeping a deadline. Still, that doesn't mean we don't realize that delays can be disappointing, and we apologize for making you wait."

You can still register for the beta on Gwent's site, and you can check the game out earlier if you're attending Gamescom from August 17th to August 21st. CD Projekt will let people play one round of Gwent for the first time at the show floor two months before the beta starts, and you can always play it in The Witcher 3 as well.
