Lately, Ubisoft hasn’t taken the floor very quickly to explain what is really going on internally. The rule is now broken as speaking French to defend the NFT. Ah.
A few weeks ago, Ubisoft entered the deep end of NFTs by announcing the opening of the Quartz portal, a platform for buying NFTs, “Digits” in local newspeak. At this launch, which almost no one saw coming, it was the soldier Ghost Recon Breakpoint who was responsible for wiping the pavement. A few hours later, the presentation video was removed from Ubisoft’s YouTuvbe channel, to blame for those naughty gamers who really don’t understand anything.
The blow went by itself
The previous process doesn’t seem to agree with the industry giant, since an artist working on Apex Legends only sees traces of. has found 15 transactions on exchange platforms validated by Ubisoft. However, French remains and signs with the specialized website Decrypt.co.
In a new interview, the technical director of the blockchain Didier Genevois justified the decisions of his employer:
We’ve had a lot of feedback since Quartz was announced, and we’ve heard both encouragement and concerns from players. We understand where the sentiment toward this technology is coming from, and we need to continue to consider it every step of the way.We know this is a big change that will take time, but we will stay true to our principles.
“Because we can”
In order to develop its NFT activity for video games, Ubisoft has partnered with the cloud service Aleph.im, which is said to save the valuable “unique” objects of Ghost Recon Breakpoint players over time, and undoubtedly more:
Our main goal with Ubisoft Quartz is to show our players the real value of decentralization. Aleph.im played a key role in making our vision a reality by allowing us to go further and decentralize the storage of Digits metadata.
Big thing. On the other hand, Didier Genevois will not have a word for the many reservations expressed internally by Ubisoft employees themselves, including our colleagues at Kotaku echoed widely. Two weights, two measures? It’s up to you to tell us.
