After its reveal Witcher 3 launches the next generation, CD Projekt Red is discontinuing support for two of its Witcher-related sub-titles. Support for Gwent, based on the card game in the universe, and The Witcher: Monster Slayer, a mobile title, will be phased out until early 2023. By the end of this year, support will end completely.

Gwent was a popular card game in The Witcher world that players could play in The Witcher 3. CDPR eventually turned the game into a standalone title. According to CDPR Roadmap video 2023Gwent will receive a batch of 24 cards in April, July, and September. Soon after, CDPR will discontinue active support for the game, although the game will still be playable.

Monster Slayer is more of a Pokémon GO-style mobile game, with the player taking on the role of a monster-hunting Witcher. It is developed by Spokko, an affiliated studio of CD Projekt. Given that this is a game that involves going out for long periods of time (to find said monsters), releasing it during a pandemic is not well-timed. Spokko Announcement The game will be discontinued on June 30, 2023. Starting February 1, the game will no longer be available for download and the developers will initiate the decommissioning process.

CDPR is investing heavily in its Witcher universe title. It announced three games earlier this year, one being remake of the first Witcher game. Spokko said in Frequently asked questions that it will be included in the CDPR, with some of its staff moving to CDPR core projects. Some of its employees will be laid off, though it did not specify how many.
