Ubisoft Pulls the Plug on Rumored NFT Game Project Q
Ubisoft, one of the world's leading game publishers, has officially confirmed that one of its three recently canceled games was Project Q.
Project Q Cancelled
Ubisoft has now confirmed that the project has been canceled. The project, which was first announced back in April 2022, caught the attention of many fans, speculating that it could be a blockchain-based game.
The cancellation of the project was first reported by insider gaming. However, the official announcement of cancelation was posted to the #announcements channel on Discord. ”Sadly we have to cancel our upcoming closed tests as Project Q will no longer continue development. This also means that we will need to shut down this Discord server,” said a representative from Ubisoft.
Non-fungible Tokens (NFTs) have grown in popularity in the gaming sector, but they have also attracted a slew of scammers and fraudsters. While there is no specific amount of NFT gaming frauds, it is reasonable to conclude that it is a rising issue. Due to the anonymity and decentralization of blockchain technology, fraudsters may easily establish fraudulent NFT games and draw in unsuspecting players. While this news may be sad for fans who were looking forward to the game's release, the decision to stop Project Q may be taken favourably by others who were concerned about the game's use of blockchain technology.
Project Q Features
The language used during Project Q's releases led some fans to believe that the game was an NFT and that blockchain-based items were included into it. However, the game's NFT releases have failed to garner an audience, despite the company's knowledge on market trends.
The game was revealed as a multiplayer 'team battle arena' experience, with speculation that it might be a Battle Royale similar to Blast Royale. However, Ubisoft has recently declared that it will refocus its efforts on other projects and has chosen to abandon Project Q.
