If you are someone who loves to play Final Fantasy XIV, but for those of you who hate the idea of NFTs, you’ll be glad to hear that the two are unlikely to mix. According to the game’s producer and director Naoki Yoshida, NFTs are not coming to the popular MMO anytime soon. However, Yoshida made it clear that he is still interested in the concept of NFTs and believes that they could work in future games that were designed with them in mind.
As I spotted it Van ByteYesterday, Yoshida appeared in the Final Fantasy XIV series “Letter from the Producer.” while streamingTalk about blockchain technology in games, NFTs, and how it will enter the future of video games and Square Enix.
During the broadcast, Yoshida clarified that NFTs will not be added to FF14.
Depending on how Final Fantasy 14 It was designed, and we don’t intend to incorporate any kind of NFT element into the game at this point,” Yoshida explained. “If anyone is concerned or concerned about it, I can state clearly at this time that we have no intention of incorporating that into the game.”
Later in the broadcast, he doubled down on his promise, saying “No NFTs in FF14Don’t worry. However, I’m still a bit worried, but not about that FF14.
Earlier this year, Square Enix CEO Yusuke Matsuda, Post a letter praising NFTs Rather, he hoped that cheating technology – pretending to be the future – would become “a major trend in gaming in the future”. In his New Year’s address, CEO Matsuda offered empty buzzwords, vague hints, and shifted thoughts about Square Enix’s potential plans involving metaverse technology, NFT, and blockchain. It was…not great!
Yoshida was aware of this message and commented on it during the broadcast, explaining that after the CEO’s letter was published, Square Enix noted “ Lots of feedback” about NFTs and the number of Western players who seemed ‘opposed’ to them. He further explained the situation in the stream, suggesting that people seem nervous about NFTs.
However, don’t assume Yoshida is against the idea of incorporating NFTs into video games. I mean, that would be cute! But nope. Instead, Yoshida expressed his curiosity about NFT games and games, “It has absolutely nothing to do with FF14“.
“I think the car itself could be something that makes the video game concept a little bit more interesting,” Yoshida explained. “However, we will need to design a specific game that fits the concept of NFTs.”

However, as you might expect, It seems that most companies are more than willing to do so To start selling players in NFTs and oThere is nonsense powered by the blockchain In order to make some quick money before the inevitable bubble bursts.
