Despite early promises of a September beta, it now seems that the Gwent closed beta has been pushed back to October. A spokesperson for CD Projekt RED simply stated that they needed more time to prepare the beta, and that it would be the first impression of the game so they wanted further development. They are apologetic about the delay but admit that having a good game is more important than keeping a deadline. Many would argue that a beta doesn’t need to be complete, but a beta is a very important step in the development process. If a beta is rushed then it’s likely everything following will also be rushed. It’s not an overly long delay, as the closed beta will now begin on October 25th. We wish them luck and hope gamers stay hype for Gwent.
