Gwent: The Witcher Card Game’s single-player campaign, Thronebreaker, is a role-playing game some 30 hours long and will be split off into a stand-alone title, CD Projekt Red said yesterday.

As reported by Eurogamer, the developer made the announcement in a call with investors. The game is now called Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales, and it will launch alongside Gwent sometime this year.

In April, CD Projekt Red announced a six-month delay to Gwent’s launch as the developer overhauled the game, admitting that “we [had] started slowly drifting away from our original vision,” for the card collecting game.

Back in November, CD Projekt Red was already indicating that Thronebreaker would get more complex, delaying a beta for the game from the holidays into this year because of it.

CD Projekt Red told investors that Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales will launch on the same platforms as Gwent: The Witcher Card Game, which means PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One. But there still is no specific launch date for either.
