Ubisoft shocked everyone by announcing the integration of NFT with its game titled Ghost Recon Breakpoint. The Ghost Recon series has been a fan favorite, but this move has not been received positively, not by fans of the game. Following negative player feedback, the company behind the popular Far Cry series has decided to end development support for Ghost Recon Breakpoint and remove NFT content.

Kripteu Magazine previously reported that Ubisoft was the first game company to release NFTs with its new service called Quartz. Players of the game were able to hold NFTs using “Digits”, and as a result, we saw a strange reaction from the Twitter community, who were strongly against the decision made by the game developers.
It’s important to note that gamers have quite vocally revolted against the “blockchainization” of games with schemes like loot boxes, P2E, and other means. The same emotion was observed when Ubisoft announced Quartz, through which players were able to acquire Digits, the first NFTs in AAA games. The developers focused on power consumption and scalability, but did not check player emotions. As a result, now the company has shut down development support and NFT content for the Ghost Recon game.
While Ubisoft may be shut out of the NFT race, they are certainly a staunch supporter of blockchain technology and as a result, the company has launched the Strategic Innovation Lab, which will use the Tezos blockchain. The firm also confirmed the partnership with the Ultra blockchain distribution platform built on EOSIO to contribute to its testnet.
