IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – JANUARY 18: The Blizzard Entertainment campus is shown on January 18, 2022 in Irvine, California. Microsoft has announced the purchase of Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion in the games industry’s biggest deal ever.
In fact, Blizzard’s boss responded to a report regarding the investigation by saying “no one does NFT.”
The tweet comes from the official Twitter account of Blizzard head Ybarra himself, making it clear that the gaming company isn’t developing any NFT integrations for its games.
As such, it’s still unclear why Activision Blizzard polls its players on gaming trends like NFTs.
