Ubisoft to stop creating NFTs for Ghost Recon

    Ubisoft’s NFTs

    Ubisoft said Tuesday that it will no longer be producing NFTs for Ghost Recon Breakpoint. According to Ubisoft’s announcement tweet, the game garnered attention for its widely criticized Digits NFTs from Ubisoft’s Quartz platform, and the cessation of content creation means there will be no new NFTs for the game.

    “Our final piece of DLC, the brand-new Operation Motherland mode, with hundreds of new things, including 20th-anniversary classic outfits and Quartz goodies for Ghost Recon Breakpoint, was released four months ago,” Ubisoft stated. “We will continue to support both the Ghost Recon Wildlands and Ghost Recon Breakpoint servers, and we really hope you will continue to enjoy the game and have fun playing solo or in co-op with your friends.”

    Ubisoft praises players.

    On the game’s Quartz website, Ubisoft praised players who claimed a Ghost Recon Breakpoint NFT and promised more NFT drops in the future. Ubisoft stated, “You own a piece of the game and have put your mark on its history.” “Since the latest Digit for Ghost Recon Breakpoint was released on March 17, 2022, stay tuned for further platform updates and future drops with other games!”

    In a statement to The Verge, Ubisoft spokesperson Jessica Roache said, “At Ubisoft, we always learn by trying new approaches and encourage this attitude in our teams.” “Being the first to capitalize on emerging trends and technology is more than a strategy for Ubisoft; it’s in our DNA.” Ubisoft Quartz embodies this vision and provides a fantastic chance for our audience to learn about the benefits of decentralization in gaming. We’ll now strive to continue our research by expanding the platform’s value proposition with new projects and features, as the last Ghost Recon Breakpoint Digit was released on March 17.”

    No new NFTs are to be launched.

    According to the Quartz website, no new NFTs are available, although you may still peruse resale marketplaces on Objkt and Rarible. It’s unclear whether the Ghost Recon Breakpoint NFTs will be transferrable to future games in any way – Ubisoft has never stated that this will be the case, as far as I’m aware.

    “That is one of the many potential possibilities made possible by blockchain technology,” Roache noted in an email after this piece was initially published. When I asked if Ubisoft could confirm that gamers who purchased Digits will be able to move them to other games at some time, Roache responded the business had nothing to say.

    If they don’t transfer, consumers who paid a lot of money for one of the digital artifacts will be stuck with it in only one game that no longer receives fresh content from the developer, similar to what occurs with more traditional virtual gaming gear when a game closes down. That could be a pain for anyone who bought an NFT for a high price; I saw one Digit for 100 Tezos on Rarible in late March, which is around $330 now.

    Ghost recon went quiet.

    Ubisoft’s Quartz team has “gone mostly quiet internally,” according to a Kotaku article about a new Ghost Recon, while a spokeswoman assured the publication that Ubisoft will “have more to discuss regarding Ubisoft Quartz at a later date.” Ubisoft is now searching for blockchain-related positions, according to Kotaku.
