The Witcher: Monster Slayer is coming to an end next summer, according to CD PROJEKT’s Spokko studio, which revealed in a blog post today that its mobile action RPG based on the universe inspired by Andrzej Sapkowski’s fantasy novels will be shut down on June 30, 2023.

“We are proud that we were able to create a location-based AR experience that captured what it was like to be a witcher in real life and gave the community a chance to battle Witcher-world monsters up close and in person,” the Spokko team wrote about the game, which released less than two years ago in July 2021. “This is what made The Witcher: Monster Slayer such a unique experience in The Witcher franchise. “

“We are very thankful for sharing all of this with such an amazing and passionate community from all over the world,” the CD PROJEKT studio added. “This journey, filled with quests, events, and adventure, would not have been possible without you — together, we defeated over 100 million monsters worldwide, after all!”

A description for The Witcher: Monster Slayer:

Foul creatures roam the vast lands of the Continent — and it falls to those known as witchers to hunt them down. Set long before the time of Geralt of Rivia, The Witcher: Monster Slayer is an augmented-reality exploration game that challenges you to become an elite monster hunter. See the world around you transformed into the dark fantasy realm of The Witcher, and explore once-familiar locations now infested with dangerous beasts as you start on the path as a professional monster slayer.

The Witcher: Monster Slayer will be available to download from the App Store and Google Play Store until January 31, 2023, and players can expect “some major changes” in the game after February 1 ahead of its closing on June 30, 2023.

A detailed roadmap for the game can be found here.

The Witcher: Monster Slayer has a 2.9-star rating on the Google Play store at the time of this posting.
