Popular Witcher 3 minigame Gwent may become standalone game

New trademark filings suggest the runaway minigame from CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3 may be getting its own standalone version.

CD Projekt Red has filed a trademark for a standalone version of Gwent, the minigame from their 2015 hit The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt.

Nerdleaks spotted the trademark filing, which was specifically filed as a class 9 and class 41 trademark in the EU trademark office, which are designated for video game and software trademarks. 

This implies that the standalone version of Gwent will be a digital collectible card game, and not a physical tabletop game.

The trademark filings included two logos, one of which can be seen below. 

CD Projekt Red co-founder Marcin Iwinski told Eurogamer in May that they would be showcasing "a new type of video game format previously unexplored by the studio" at E3, which may refer to a standalone Gwent card game. 

For more on the unexpected success and harried development process of Gwent, be sure to read our coverage from CD Projekt Red's PAX East panel back in April.
