After almost nine months, CD Projekt RED will no longer be taking registrations for its long-running Closed Beta for Gwent: The Witcher Card Game. Sign-ups will no longer be taken starting this weekend, although the game will still remain active for anyone who redeemed their invite before, or during the weekend.
Benjamin Lee, Development Director at CD PROJEKT RED, had this to say about the announcement:
"Throughout Closed Beta, we’ve reworked and added a huge amount of features and mechanics to GWENT. Balance changes, numerous tweaks of how cards work and how the game flows; additional cards, a new faction and ranked play — it was an amazing ride and GWENT’s community was with us all the way. I’d like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for the hours invested."
With the end of the Closed Beta registrations, CD Projekt RED will move forward with plans for the launch of the Gwent Public Beta. No date on the beginning of the Public Beta has been given.
If you're interested in signing up for the Gwent Beta, you can do so by heading over here. If you do decide to register, don't forget to pick up your free copy of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition from GOG.com.
