Zynga, a game developer in San Francisco, is best known for its FarmVille and CSR Racing games, both of which received widespread praise. It intends to deliver its first blockchain- and NFT-based games this year, according to the company.
One of the billion-dollar gaming studio’s big moves last year was hiring a 30-year gaming industry veteran as vice president of Blockchain Gaming. Matt Wolf will help lead the company in a new field that is growing quickly.
Zynga also said that by the end of this year, they plan to double the number of people working on blockchain games from 15 to 100. Take-Two Interactive, the company that makes Grand Theft Auto, has said that it plans to buy the company for $12.7 billion in the first quarter of 2023. If everything goes as planned, the deal should close then.
Wolf talked about the company’s plans for NFT-based games with TBEN, and he said that he didn’t think it was necessary to start adding new games right away. NFT can be used in games like FarmVille to make them more fun.
There was a social media game: Mafia Wars, that was no longer available. Players played gangsters and worked to build their crime families in this game. He said the new games will be similar to this game.
Zynga Game Blockchain
Zynga has been more aggressive than many other traditional game companies when it comes to getting into the sometimes-controversial business of making games that are based on the blockchain. It happened a lot that game studios hesitates to add cryptocurrency-related features because of angry gamers.
Some players have included NFTs in their games, believing that companies are only looking for new ways to extract money from their customers.
According to Wolf, the company’s game developers will always have the option to use or not use NFT or Non-fungible Token, regardless of the circumstances. The same phenomenon happened at other video game firms, such as Electronic Arts and Ubisoft.
Wolf thinks that NFTs and blockchain technology is the obvious next step in Zynga’s development. Tokenized systems will allow gamers to create new, more realistic ways to make money, own things, and own things.
In an interview with the New York Times, Wolf claimed that he was fully aware of the issues that NFT-based games face. It’s all about the community, and we believe in providing everyone with the opportunity to participate and win.
