Game developers not interested in NFTs, survey finds
NFTs remain a contentious topic for developers, according to the State of the Game Industry survey, with a majority claiming their companies aren't interested at all.
The details: The survey states that 72% of respondents related to cryptocurrency and 70% of respondents related to NFTs have no interest in either.
- "The current implementation of both technologies is still very limited, with 1% of respondents saying that their studio already uses either."
The big picture: Big names like Ubisoft and Square Enix have shown interest in the NFT wave, alongside veteran developers Will Wright and Peter Molyneux.
- But the interest among developers themselves is far more scattered, and the general reaction from the video game community is poor.
What they're saying: One developer said that they currently work at an NFT company and plan to quit: “Burn 'em to the ground. Ban everyone involved in them.”
- “How this hasn’t been identified as a pyramid scheme is beyond me,” said another.
- Others are keen to see where it goes: “It’s the wave of the future.”
