The roleplaying game franchise The Witcher is one of the most successful gaming series to ever come out of Poland. While the RPG is still very popular on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, the mobile game called The Witcher: Battle Arena is slowly fading away. Publisher CD Project RED and developers Fuero Games have now announced on the official game homepage that the mobile game would go offline towards the end of the year – more precisely on December 31st. Players can already not make any in-game purchases anymore. As with many other mobile games, players are lucky, as they will still be able to play The Witcher: Battle Arena offline on their mobile devices, once the servers are shut down. Naturally, they can only do this as long as the app is not uninstalled from their smartphones and tablets. There will, however, be no future updates or online availability anymore.
Additionally, players who have spent real money on the free-to-play game should check out the studio’s Goodbye Initiative, which allows players to receive an equivalent of the money they spent in the game to spend on GOG.com. Players can find titles such as The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings, RollerCoaster Tycoon, Deus Ex, and various indie games on the gaming platform.
