The developers of STALKER 2, GSC Game World, announced yesterday that they will be adding NFTs to the game. As you can imagine, the reception from the public has not been kind.
NFTs (and the blockchain itself) are an environmental disaster, a pump-and-dump scam, and an unnecessary attack on existing technologies and systems that don’t need to be fixed. So whatever approach you want to come to them from — or all three if you will, I’m not here to stop you — they suck.
I think the fan reaction was best summed up by this most voted comment on Reddit, which simply said:
“They literally had nothing to do to keep me excited for this game and they screwed it up anyway.”
Either way, 24 hours after making the announcement, and after being criticized for all of those 24 hours, the studio decided it was time to tweet an “apology” letter. Of course, he didn’t apologize for anything other than a perceived “lack of communication”.
An hour later, they instead announced the decision to “undo everything NFT in STALKER 2”, with an incredible statement. After explaining in their previous tweet how NFTs were going to help fundraising development, this time they are essentially blaming fans for depriving GSC Game World of a fraudulent source of revenue.Zone contenant les pièc
