Activision Reportedly Keeping an Eye on “NFT Shooting” in Future Call of Duty Games

Activision is reportedly considering the inclusion of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in upcoming Call of Duty titles, as an insider claimed it is currently under discussion.

While NFTs have been all the rage in recent months, it’s rare to come across a project announcement without some amount of controversy.

Whether it is alleged scam or “cringe” marketing campaignshave many of the top figures in the industry outspoken against cryptocurrency-based schemes, especially as they involve video games.

In fact, Valve has even gone so far as to Direct ban NFT games on Steam, one of the largest distribution platforms today.

Despite the near-endless waves of controversy, Activision is reportedly considering a way to implement NFTs in its biggest franchise, Call of Duty.

Could the CoD store soon be filled with NFT based items?

The report comes via alleged insider ‘RalphsValve’, who is a… great deal from CoD specific information in the past months.

In an April 4 post, they claimed that “NFT incorporation is reportedly being considered by Activision.” While nothing is set in stone yet, and it appears to be quite early in the pipeline, it is reportedly being talked about.

“NFTs have been under review and consideration for a few months now,” they said. Datum recent kickback however, for some NFT-based gaming projects, there’s always a chance it could “fall through”.

There’s no telling exactly how NFTs would be included in the CoD series, if presumed plans go ahead. We could see everything from weapon skins to phone cards delivered over the blockchain in this hypothetical future.

With a broader user interface “overhaul” reportedly in the works, with Activision looking to “personalize” user accounts with more depth than ever before, NFTs could be one of those ways to make that happen.

Obviously, it’s worth taking all of this with a huge grain of salt for now. Chances are, these alleged conversations have already stopped in the face of the copious NFT drama in the gaming industry.
