Ubisoft’s New PvP Battle Arena, “Project Q” Apparently NFT Free

With a mass amount of NFT backlash, perhaps Ubisoft has finally learned something.

Project Q

Last week we reported on Ubisoft’s new PvP battle arena, “Project Q.” The game is said to feature a variety of PvP modes–two of which have already been named. Now, while the game is still in early development and undergoing tests, Ubisoft has opened up registration for players to join in on said game tests as they become available later down the road. The artwork attached to Ubisoft’s Twitter post reconfirms that its art style does seem to in fact take after Activision Blizzard's Overwatch and EA's Knockout City.

From the artwork alone, it looks like this game will have some fun gimmicks. We see a man riding on a shovel as if it were a magic broom, and a canister marked “Boom” that resembles a spray paint canister that is propelling a girl in the air with a colored paint trail left in her wake. While the game image may look appealing enough, many fans are worried about Ubisoft and their past involvement with NFTs.

In response, Ubisoft’s Twitter account made mention multiple times that “[They] don’t have plans to add NFTs to this game.” Still, the vagueness of each tweet that continued to reiterate the same message was worded in a way to say, “Today we don't have NFTs, but who knows what tomorrow may bring.” Considering the backlash that NFTs bring, it would be a smart move to downplay involvement with NFTs while the game is in early development. Then again, it would be even nicer if NFTs could just stay out of gaming entirely.

dunno why but from far that picture for me reminded Immortals: Fenyx Rising, which is ubisofts most creative game in last years. People may say it copies zeldas open world game but it felt more unique then trend chasing Ubisoft likes to do.
