Simple minutes were the time that passed between the last attempt to justify the NFT system and Metaverse to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 proposed by GSC Game World and the decision of the same study to reverse what is one of the most embarrassing moments in gaming at the end of the year. Following the poor reception of the NFT idea, the development team had no choice but to cancel their plans and listen to the players.
No more NFT for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, although the study tried
Through a couple of posts on the official Twitter account of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, GSC Game World announced the cancellation of its NFT and Metaverse system which was part of a monetization strategy thinking in the short, medium and long term. It all started with the controversy after the announcement of the integration of NFT and the Metaverse in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, one of the most anticipated games of next year that will debut on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox Game Pass and PC. The response from the community was not what was expected and criticism and discouragement were visible in the wave of negative comments against the study and the project.
In the context of the controversy and poor reception, today GSC Game World made an attempt to convince the players and through a publication on the Twitter account, later withdrawn, they pointed out that they are an independent study with a huge project, since S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 It is the largest they have ever worked on, that they are a team that needs time and money and that they do not have an editor as such, but partners. At the same time, they reported that owners of NFT content would see their in-game usernames posted on whatever they purchased, such as a table or a wall. The result was worse and the players were soon going against the development team.
The devs of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 they listened to the fans
After the publication, a few minutes passed and before the response of the players interested in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2, the study had no choice but to backtrack and through the same medium they published the following: “Dear STALKERS, we have listened to you. Taking into account the feedback received, we have made the decision to cancel everything related to NFTs in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. The interest of our fans and players is the priority for the team. We are making this game for you to enjoy, no matter what the cost. If you care, we care. “
