Sport Builders GSC Sport World and Ubisoft Face Backlash About NFT Inclusion – Bitcoin Information

0

GSC Game World and Ubisoft, two game development companies, are facing backlash over the inclusion of NFT elements in some of their games. While GSC Game World – developer of the popular game franchise Stalker – has given up on its plans in this regard, Ubisoft is pushing ahead and has announced a partnership with Aleph.im to store images from its NFT platform.

GSC Game World and Ubisoft have different approaches

Two game developers who recently announced the introduction of NFT elements as part of their upcoming and existing games are facing negative reactions from the gaming public on this matter. However, each of them does it differently. GSC Game World, the makers of the Ukraine-based Stalker gaming franchise, announced that they would end all plans to include NFT elements in Stalker 2, an upcoming game. The company posted a statement on Twitter stating:

We hear you. Based on the feedback we received, we decided to put all NFT-related content in STALKER 2. The interests of our fans and players are the top priority for the team. We make this game so that you can enjoy it – whatever it costs. If you’re interested, we’ll take care of it too.

GSC Game World had previously stated that any funds from potential NFT sales would go into improving the game before it was released to make it even better.

Ubisoft is pushing forward

However, not all developers have given up on continuing their planned roadmap, even if users were negatively received. In particular, Ubisoft, another game company, today announced a partnership with Aleph.im, a decentralized storage solution, to store images and information for each NFT stored in its own NFT market called Ubisoft Quartz. The PR statement on this partnership states:

The NFT metadata is stored on aleph.im’s fully decentralized storage system with over 70 nodes, while all NFT ownership is tracked on the Tezos blockchain.

Quartz, the platform the company is already using to provide NFTs for games like Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, debuted on December 9th and is based on the Tezos blockchain. Ubisoft touts the development as “energy-efficient playable NFTs”, but the platform’s December 8 announcement met with almost universal criticism, with more than 95% of viewers disliked on YouTube.
