Jorge Murillo, senior designer of Overwatch, recently stated on his personal Twitter account that he is totally against NFTs and will fight to make sure they are not integrated into the game. Of course, his remarks garnered applause from the community.
I’m not gunna qt the person cuz I don’t like the dogpiling that happens on twitter, but as a dev on the @PlayOverwatch team, I am strongly against NFTs and will fight to make sure they aren’t integrated into our game.

If we consider that Overwatch will belong to Xbox very soon after the recent purchase of Activision Blizzard, we doubt that the technology will be integrated into the game or the sequel. Only time will tell.
