While some don’t dare to get too wet on the subject NFT Anything else? blockchainOthers, like Activision-Blizzard, believe strongly in these practices. it is a matter yosuke matsudaPresident of square Enix, who had already announced during the transition into the new year that he was watching all of this very closely, seeing it as a way for players to invest more in building the games they play. A few months later, despite several failures on the subject from other competitors, its interest has not waned.
Blockchain is the future according to Square Enix
In a new interview with Yahoo Japan aired by VGC, Matsuda is quite pessimistic that traditional games can remain enough to keep the publisher financially healthy.,
That is why He thinks blockchain can help with play-to-earn type gamesIncluding allowing users to create content for the game when rewards are received:
, In the future, we would like to try our hand at providing “self-contained game content”. Until now, in most games, we delivered content as a finished product and players played that content. However, there are many gamers around the world who want to help make the game more interesting by creating new settings and new ways of playing. In the future, we want to use the creativity of these people to create games that will continue to evolve. If, instead of relying on everyone’s goodwill, we can also provide incentives to those who contribute to development using technologies like blockchain, it is possible to create innovative and interesting content from everyone’s ideas . ,
Then we can answer that users can create new content on the game already with mods, without the need for the blockchain, but Matsuda is clearly looking for an economy behind this, so that the publisher can make all these new creations. (and therefore not only to pay players at the core of these creations, let’s not be naive).
If we believe these words, everything is still in the thinking stage, but seeing such interest in blockchain from Square Enix chairman suggests that the publisher may launch a more concrete launch very soon in the first tests. (and we hope to be wrong).
