Author’s take: The world of The Witcher is always expanding, but I’m interested in how they will well a story of epic battles and deep narrative with the usage of cards. I’m sure it’s possible, but I think I’m more intrigued by the developer’s execution of this type of niche game when they could probably put out anything, but focus on telling stories the way they want.
