Blizzard Entertainment reportedly began polling its players to find out how interested they were in NFTs and play-to-earn cryptocurrency-based games.
Despite these reports, it doesn’t sound like Blizzard is too keen on bringing these types of technologies to the company’s games. In fact, Blizzard President Mike Ybarra told Video Games Chronicle that the company doesn’t have any plans to launch NFTs.
It also doesn’t sound like other studios are all that impressed with NFTs either. During the recently held Game Developers Conference, over 2,700 devs were asked, “what is your studio’s interest in non-fungible tokens (NFTs)?” 70% replied “not interested” while 21% said they were “somewhat interested.” 7% claimed to be very interested in NFTs while the final 1% had reportedly already begun developing NFTs.
The Profit‘s Take:
I don’t understand why you would take such a hard stance on something like this. Now, if they ever decide to do NFTs, somebody is going to dig up this tweet and make Blizzard look stupid. This isn’t going to change the way that people feel about Activision-Blizzard right now because those feelings are shot to hell. He’s not currying any favor with gamers by saying this, so it makes no sense to proclaim it.
