Revealed on IGN, The Golden Nekker will be a stand-alone game based upon Gwent — The Witcher world's card game. It seems that this spin-off will be unaffiliated with the new version of Gwent that stands on its own — it still exists on PC and mobile, though was delisted from consoles — as well as the incredible Gwent RPG The Witcher Tales: Thronebreaker. Pawel Burza, the Gwent communications lead, is quoted as saying that “it’s not another Witcher Tales [game] but something different... We’re aiming to provide a captivating single-player for players who prefer it over competitive multiplayer Gwent.”

IGN actually shared plenty of concept art of the game, like the one above showing off a cheeky little Golden Nekker in a study of some kind. That is literally everything we have at this time, but IGN did note that it is expecting an October 2022 release date. The hype levels in the TT office have risen to extreme levels for 2022!
