Ubisoft has stated that it is no longer making updates or non-fungible tokens (NFTs) for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint.
the confirmed company that the March launch of its NFT-based Digit item for Breakpoint was the latest update. Ubisosft said servers will remain available for Breakpoint and the previous Ghost Recon: Wildlands.
Ubisoft caused an uproar among fans when it announced NFTs late last year. Ubisoft positioned it as a way to reward players who had put 600 hours or more into the game, and it allowed them to buy a limited number of NFTs and sell them as well. But there were plenty of restrictions, and players reacted negatively to the plan as a plan to milk players, rather than providing NFTs with any real game utility for players.
In this sense, the reaction to NFTs has sparked a wave of backlash against blockchain-based projects at GSC Game World, Team17, voice actor Troy Baker, and various esports companies. In other places like Asia and among crypto enthusiasts, however, NFTs are receiving a much warmer reception as an opportunity for gamers to own digital assets and earn money from them.
Ubisoft hasn’t said whether it will abandon NFTs altogether or pursue it with other brands it owns. Ubisoft said Digits will continue with other platforms and projects. Ars Technica reported that there were only 96 successful resales among the thousands of numbers hit by Ubisoft.
We asked Ubisoft for comment and they released this statement:
“At Ubisoft, we continually learn by trying new things and encourage this attitude in our teams. Being the first to take advantage of emerging trends and technologies is more than essential in Ubisoft’s strategy, it’s part of our DNA. Ubisoft Quartz reflects this ambition and represents an incredible opportunity to learn with our community what decentralization can bring to gaming. As the latest Ghost Recon Breakpoint Digit was released on March 17, we will now be looking to continue our exploration by enhancing the value proposition of the platform with new projects and features.
And in a message to players On its NFT page, Ubisoft said, “Thank you to all the Ghost Recon Breakpoint players who claimed their first numbers! You own part of the game and have left your mark on its history. As the last Digit for Ghost Recon Breakpoint was released on 03/17/2022, stay tuned for more updates with platform features and future drops coming with other games!
