Despite intense public opposition over their environmental impact and fraud concerns, publishers have continued pushing for controversial NFTs in gaming. Xbox and Valve remain unconvinced, but Ubisoft's announced they'll be venturing into them through Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint.
Utilizing the Ubisoft Quartz NFT platform, the French publishers plans to let players earn and buy in-game items that are "tokenized" on Tezos blockchain. While public dislikes are no longer viewable on YouTube, VGC reports that 95% of users downvoted this trailer.
