As if it hasn’t made enough bad decisions, it looks like Activision Blizzard is looking into introducing NFTs to it’s games.
In a YouGov survey issued to its players, Activision Blizzard asked players how interested they are in emerging trends in gaming.
The survey included VR, AR, cross-play and subscription services – and play-to-earn gaming. It mentions the metaverse, cryptocurrency and non-fungible tokens as options, and responders could select how interested they are in each topic.
Activision NFTs – What is Play-To-Earn?
Despite NFTs already being exposed as a dying trend, it seems gaming companies haven’t caught onto the fact that most players don’t want them. Hopefully a wave of negative responses will dissuade Activision Blizzard, but who knows.
It’s unknown how NFTs could be implemented into Activision Blizzard’s games. With an acquisition by Microsoft on the table, a company that hasn’t expressed interest in the trend, how long the feature would last is up in the air.
In other NFT news, Jack Dorsey, creator of Twitter, recently sold an NFT for $2.9 million. The NFT was of his first ever tweet, which says “just setting up my twttr”. Now, the new owner of the NFT is struggling to sell it for much more than $10K.
