What’s new? One Twitter user asked the founder and CEO of Epic Games Tim Sweeney about his stance on gaming NFTs. Sweeney replied that developers have the right to determine how to create their projects, and users are free to decide whether or not to play them. He also noted that “stores and operating system makers should not interfere by forcing their views onto others,” stressing that Epic Games certainly is not going to do that.

NFT gaming situation. The question to the head of Epic Games arose after Minecraft developers refused to integrate NFTs into the game. The company stressed that all players should have the same experience and that non-fungible tokens contribute to the creation of scarcity and exclusivity.

In June, it was announced that blockchain games would be available on the Epic Games Store. The first such project will be Gala Games’ shooter GRIT, in which in-game NFTs can be traded.

Earlier, Japan-based Square Enix announced work on an NFT project to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the game Final Fantasy VII. It previously sold three subsidiary studios to invest in blockchain, artificial intelligence, and cloud technologies.
