You Won’t Be In S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: GSC, Seeing The Player’s Outrage, Has Backed Down

GSC Game World has issued a statement indicating that it is ending its plans to include blockchain technology in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.



You may remember our GSC – S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 themed news from yesterday. As we wrote, the growing interest of companies in the NFT is more than evident, with big bets such as Ubisoft Quartz and its first steps in Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, or Legacy, the game from Fable creator Peter Molyneux that has already generated nearly 50 million euros without even being released.

The latest studio to try to break into this new and growing market was GSC Game World, which announced an ambitious project to introduce blockchain technology into the game so that the community could “own a piece of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2”. To achieve this goal, the studio has promised to involve “metahumans”.

The auctions to invest in these NFTs were scheduled for January 2022, but the public reaction was so adverse that it took the studio just one day to backtrack and announce that all NFT projects for S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 had been cancelled. They did this in a Twitter statement from their official account.

“The interests of our fans and players are GSC Game World’s top priority.”

GSC Game World’s message was addressed directly to fans and referred to comments that had been raised following the news. “We hear you. Based on the feedback we received, we’ve made a decision to cancel anything NFT-related in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2. The interest of our fans and players are the top priority for the team. We’re making this game for you to enjoy – whatever the cost is. If you care, we care too.” GSC Game World is not alone in its negative audience reactions to such projects; Ubisoft was recently forced to withdraw its Quartz trailer after an avalanche of negative votes.
