Ubisoft ends its NFT experiment in Ghost Recon Breakpoint but promises they’re ‘coming to other games’


Yesterday, Ubisoft announced that Ghost Recon Breakpoint would receive no further content updates (opens in new tab), the final act for a game that had an extremely messy launch (opens in new tab) and never really found its audience. It also ended up being used as a guinea pig for Ubisoft Quartz: the first attempt by a major publisher to incorporate non-fungible tokens in its games. Breakpoint’s ‘Digits’, cosmetics with little numbers on them (opens in new tab), launched in December 2021.

The Breakpoint Digits did not create all that much interest: I kept checking trading sites for a month or two after their launch, and there was barely any activity around them. Now Ubisoft has confirmed that the end of Breakpoint updates also means that the game won’t see any more Digits: a message on the Ubisoft Quartz website thanks players who bought them and reads “You own a piece of the game and have left your mark in its history” (thanks, GI.biz (opens in new tab)).
