Stalker 2 Devs Canceled All NFT Content After Fan Backlash

GCS Game World announced – to the backlash – that it will be integrated NFT into the very building blocks of Stalker 2’s world. The idea is that people who have purchased NFTs will be added to the game as NPCs to create a metaverse, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone supporting the move.

In a Twitter post, the developer said: “We hear you. Based on the feedback received, we have made the decision to cancel everything related to NFT in Stalker 2. Fan interest and our players are the team’s top priority. We’re making this game for you to enjoy – whatever the price. If you care, we care too.”

Just a day before the post, Stalker 2 doubled down on the same Twitter account, stating that the game is not blockchain-based, that NFT will not affect gameplay and that it will be completely optional. However, this wasn’t enough to prevent backlash, so apologies and changes followed.

If you don’t know, NFT (non-fungible token) is basically a receipt. Imagine you buy a carton of milk, but you want to show that this is your milk carton – your one-of-a-kind milk carton. So you pay extra for a receipt that you can show people to say, “Yes, this is my milk. Nobody else’s.” That’s what NFTs are, an expensive receipt for bragging rights. But most people don’t care that you have a single carton of milk – it’s just milk.

Instead of a receipt, it’s an ID token – a serial number. But you can still right click and save the work and keep a essentially identical ‘copy’ but without that token. However, they are extremely expensive while also damaging the environment due to their relationship with electronic money mined, using as much energy as an entire household over a period of weeks and, in some cases, even months. A gif of Nyan Cat costs the same as one month of electricity usage by an EU resident.

Stalker 2 launches on April 28, 2022 – is the sequel to the hit 2007 classic, Shadow of Chernobyl. And now it’s NFT free.
