The biggest term that remained at the tip of everyone's tongues in 2021 was NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens). Major entertainment entities, sports leagues, iconic food brands, etc. have stepped into the burgeoning Web 3.0 space to produce one-of-a-kind digital assets of their own. In the gaming space, AAA publishers/developers such as Square Enix, Sega, and Capcom have either taken their first steps into the world of NFTs or made it abundantly clear that they're researching ways towards doing so.
Ubisoft is another AAA gaming staple that has begun making some headway into the NFT medium. The French publisher/developer's biggest foray into NFTs to date is the recently announced Ubisoft Quartz enterprise. This brand new venture gives players the ability to get their hands on "Digits," which are described as "the first Ubisoft NFTs (non-fungible tokens), playable in an HD game and relying on an energy-efficient technology." And the first AAA game to utilize that new concept is Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Breakpoint, which incorporates NFTs in the form of three signature in-game items - the M4A1 Tactical | Wolves firearm, the Wolf Enhanced Helmet A, and the Wolf Enhanced Pants. With such a huge Web 3.0 endeavor underway, Ubisoft chose to partner up with a legitimate force within the space to see its vision through.
