Ubisoft to Add Quartz NFTs to More Games, Despite Backlash

Ubisoft to Add Quartz NFTs to More Games, Despite Backlash - News

by William D'Angelo , posted on 07 April 2022 / 1,492 Views

Ubisoft in December 2021 introduced a new NFT platform called Quartz and will start by adding NFTs to Ghost Recon Breakpoint that include unique in-game cosmetic items. Ubisoft blockchain technical director Didier Genevois later said he has heard positive and negative feedback about adding NFTs to games and the company plans to continue exploring adding NFTs to its games. 

The publisher in a state posted on the official Quartz website has stated it will add more "Digits" to its upcoming games. 

"Thank you to all Ghost Recon Breakpoint players who claimed their first Digits," reads the statement. "You own a piece of the game and have left your mark in its history. As the last Digit for Ghost Recon Breakpoint was released on 3/17/2022, stay tuned for more updates with features to the platform and future drops coming with other games."

i remember when Yves Guillemot was on e3 stage basically crying about a possible vivendi take over, saying how he needs to keep the companys 'independence'... Given these past few years, maybe things would have been better with the vivendi take over. Broken games, failed life service attempts, stale open world, lack of innovation, following a games blueprint they've had for years and just making games in that skin, nfts. Yves said the take over was 'unwelcome' Ubisoft as it is now, is 'unwelcome'

"...Didier Genevois later said he has heard positive and negative feedback about adding NFTs to games..." Who said positive? Shareholders?

Can we get some Government body to declare that NFTs are a form of gambling (on which one will make money) or some kind of tax-dodge, or maybe used for money laundering, so that NFTS can't be included in anything but M-rated games?

Probably not. Such legislation would necessarily cover physical art and other collectibles. Any country doing this would be opening a giant can of worms.

This is when you know a company stopped giving a shit about what it's audience wants.

Sounds like ubisoft is throwing darts at a board, while also trying to make games for audiences it wants, rather than what it's existing audiences actually want.
