GDANSK, Jan 31 (Reuters) – Video game maker CD Projekt (CDR.WA) is working on a new single-player version of the GWENT card game, a company representative said.

Earlier Monday, video games and entertainment media website IGN reported that CD Projekt was working on a new single-player standalone game from GWENT, sending its shares 8% higher.

“Yes, we are working on a new GWENT single-player title, which will be released this year,” GWENT communications manager Pawel Burza told Reuters in an emailed comment.

“At this time, we cannot specify the release date,” he added.

CD Projekt, best known for its big budget productions “The Witcher” and “Cyberpunk 2077″, released a full version of “GWENT: The Witcher Card Game” in 2018.

Ipopema Securities analyst Michal Wojciechowski said that while the card game would not have a material impact on the company’s results, it was a “slightly positive surprise”.

Shares of CD Projekt closed up 8.3% at 180.06 zlotys ($44.11).
