The developer of Final Fantasy, one of the most famous game series, continues to rely on blockchain technology, despite the big troubles in the crypto industry.
Square Enix Relies on Blockchain
Despite all the problems the industry is experiencing, the company sees the blockchain industry as something that is evolving and believes that blockchain-based games will be important in the future.
Yosuke Matsuda, chairman of the company, said:
Square Enix has become one of the game studios that attaches the most importance to blockchain technology. As part of its efforts to focus on new projects, the company sold the naming rights to popular games such as Tomb Raider and Deus Ex, as well as its three game studios.
The company also plans to release the Final Fantasy NFT collection later this year.
Players, on the other hand, have a distant attitude towards NFT projects. Matsuda’s statements also caused reactions from Final Fantasy fans.
Despite the reactions, the company does not seem to give up its interest in blockchain technology.
