There’s a new game coming from GTA veterans, and everyone assumed that the game would have blockchain technology.
At Gamescom Opening Night Live, a game was revealed called Everywhere. At the conference, it was discovered that Leslie Benzies (a GTA and Red Dead veteran) is hiring for a blockchain project in his blockchain department. As the news came out, Twitter folks started assuming that the game would be riddled with crypto aspects.
When he got to know about this rumor, he denied that rumor making it clear that Everywhere doesn’t have NFTs of blockchain technology. He then went on to make this political statement that the company isn’t ruling out its inclusion in the future.
Further, the developers made it clear that the positions are ‘research positions’ – it doesn’t mean that they’re hiring for blockchain technology, so there will be blockchain aspects Everywhere.
Hello everyone, we’re seeing some conversation on NFTs/Cryptos that are prompted by some of our open positions on our website. These are research positions, as we do not like dismissing new technologies only because others haven’t found a solution for them yet. We are building Everywhere on Unreal Engine 5, not the blockchain. We are creating a new world for players, where we come together to play, watch, create, share, and so much more! We hope this helps clarify some of the speculations around this topic.
The text above came from a Reddit post. It makes it clear that the developers are well aware that there’s been some conversation about Everywhere integrating blockchain aspects.
The developers are saying that Everywhere is built on Unreal Engine 5 and will NOT have blockchain technology as UE 5 doesn’t really integrate with blockchain. Now that the company has made it clear that NFTs are not included, we are still eager to know what the company will do in the future.
