Ubisoft CEO Says He’s In “Research Mode” Concerning Web3 Tech Integration.
According to the interview on gamesindustry.biz, Yves Guillemot, the CEO of Ubisoft, a gaming company headquartered in Franch, said he was in “research mode” focusing on Web3 tech integration.
Ways NFT Can Be Applied to WEB3 Games
Currently, the primary goal of Ubisoft is to find out how NFTs can be applied to games and whether they will benefit gamers.
“We are very much on cloud, on the new generation of voxels, and we’re looking at all the Web3 capabilities. We tested a few things recently that are giving us more information on how it can be used and what we should do in the universe of video games. So we are testing ground with some games, and we’ll see if they really answer the players’ needs. But we are still in research mode, I would say,” said Guillemot.
“We probably were not good at saying we are researching. “We should have said we were working on it, and when we have something that gives you a real benefit, we’ll bring it to you,” added him.
The Environmental Impact of Blockchain Technology
Aside talked about NFT, the Ubisoft CEO also received a question regarding the environmental impacts of blockchain tech which is often higlighted by gamers who generally having misconception that energy-intensive proof-of-work (PoW) chains are the standard for all projects.
“This industry is evolving quickly, and it’s very cautious about the impact it will have. Like so many things, at the beginning it’s not as good as it could be, but like other new technologies they will find the right way,” said the CEO.
In addition, Ubisoft’s spokesperson said that decentralised technologies are no exception to its commitment to the environment, explaining that its Strategic Innovation Lab, which conducts blockchain research, works closely with the team responsible for corporate social responsibility.
