Ubisoft is no longer creating content for Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, including its controversial NFTs.
the Official Ghost Recon Twitter account confirmed that March saw the game’s final update, although the servers for Breakpoint and its predecessor Wildlands will continue to be maintained.
GamesIndustry.biz asked Ubisoft if this included the game’s NFTs and received a screenshot from the Ubisoft Quartz website (which is not available in all regions) confirming that it did.
The post thanks all Ghost Recon: Breakpoint players who claimed their first Digits – Ubisoft’s term for its NFTs – adding “You own a piece of the game and have left your mark on its history.”
It concludes, “Stay tuned for more updates with platform features and future drops coming with other games.”
The final figure for Breakpoint was released on March 17 – just three months after Ubisoft first announced it would be adding NFTs to the game.
Breakpoint NFTs were in-game items such as pants for your character with unique serial numbers rendered on them.
One of the most common selling points for NFTs is the ability to use your items in other games, although it’s unclear if this will apply to figures sold in Breakpoint.
News of Ubisoft’s entry into the sale of NFT caused confusion and frustration among some of its own employees, as well as backlash from members of the public.
Earlier this year, Ubisoft Strategic Innovations Lab Vice President Nicolas Pouard said in an interview that gamers “don’t understand” how they can benefit from NFTs.
