Ubisoft no longer makes new content for Ghost Recon Breakpointthe company announced on TuesdayThe game gained some notoriety for the heavily criticized Digits NFTs from Ubisoft’s Quartz platform, and the end of content creation means there will be no new NFTs for the game, according to Ubisoft’s Announcement Tweet

“The last four months marked the release of our latest piece of content: the brand new Operation Motherland mode, a host of new items including iconic 20th anniversary outfits and Quartz items for Ghost Recon BreakpointUbisoft said. “We will continue to maintain our servers for both Ghost Recon Wildlands and Ghost Recon Breakpoint and we really hope you will continue to enjoy the game and have fun playing solo or co-op with your friends

Ubisoft thanked players who created a . bought Ghost Recon Breakpoint NFT on the game’s Quartz website – and promised more NFT drops in the future. “You own a part of the game and you left your mark in history,” Ubisoft said. “As the last figure for Ghost Recon Breakpoint was released on 3/17/2022, stay tuned for more updates with platform features and future drops with other games!”

“At Ubisoft, we are constantly learning by trying new things and encouraging this attitude in our teams,” Ubisoft spokesperson Jessica Roache said in a statement. The edge† “Being the first to capitalize on emerging trends and technology is more than the core of Ubisoft’s strategy, it’s part of our DNA.

However, the developer of that game has made up a few options for current NFT holders, including, in some cases, the ability to exchange the NFTs for “proxy assets” that can be used in the future to “acquire NFTs for products in the REVV Motorsport ecosystem”.
