GSC Game World quickly changed its mind and will remove NFT from its production. STALKER 2 will not receive any “unique digital items” that we can trade. Developers stressed that they are listening to feedback from the community.
In recent days, you have often read about NFTs, which are digital, unique assets that can be traded. The first great studio offering a similar proposal in our industry is Ubisoft – the giant’s actions are opposed by employees and the French trade union . A few days ago, the creators of STALKER also proposed the introduction of their own NFT, which players definitely responded to . The team announced the change of initiative:
Yesterday, the first users announced that the refund of the new STALKER was starting, some referred to the words of Phil Spencer, who mentioned that he did not want similar experiments in Xbox games – although in this case we can assume that the head of the Xbox was referring to the production of his teams. What’s more, STALKER 2 could face difficulties on Steam as Valve ban games that use blockchain and NFT technology .
The latest position of the Ukrainian studio became loud in a very negative sense, so the developers had to react extremely quickly.
