Although the news generates certain reactions among enthusiasts and analysts, the truth is that Square Enix has already spoken out in favour of the NFT in the past, stating earlier this year its intentions to have more of a presence in the digital collectibles space. At the time, it was the company’s CEO himself, Yosuke Matsuda, who reported this in a letter where he talked in greater depth about the company’s “decentralized games” and the metaverse.
On the deal in question, the studios and associated intellectual properties will now become part of Embracer Group AB, a Sweden-based company with franchises such as Borderlands, Duke Nukem, Saints Row, Dead Island, TimeSplitters, Darksiders, Metro and many others.

Is this a good idea?
While Square Enix seems to be very confident in its plans, the question on many fans’ and analysts’ minds is whether this will be one of the best plans the company could pull off, especially given the position it’s been in after certain releases like Avengers y Babylon’s Fall not having the expected results, which adds to the controversy that is already going around the NFT within the gaming sector.
Let’s take into account an account is essentially a whose purpose is to track the financial activities of a specific asset/ that one of the games where this concept could apply is the game of MMORPG, whose main exponent of the company is Final Fantasy XIV . For this case, the Japanese company assured that it had no intention of incorporating any elements NFT on the title at least at the moment, but insiders don’t rule out that this could see changes later precisely because of how lucrative it could be for the title.
Otra preocupación que está sobre la mesa es si este sería el mejor momento para ingresar al mercado de los NFT, especialmente porque para ciertos analistas parece que el sector ha visto un decremento en el interés manifiesto por quienes fueron entusiastas en su momento. Aunque ciertas plataformas registran importantes volúmenes de operaciones en la actualidad, el momento de mayor auge para estos activos fue durante el pasado 2021, donde explotó cierta fiebre por hacerse con coleccionables digitales de gran cantidad de colecciones.
For now we can only wait and see what announcements the Japanese company makes about it.
