EA says NFT and blockchain games are the future

Still too early yet

When asked about the possibility of NFTs during an earnings call this week, EA CEO Andrew Wilson said NFTs and play-to-earn games will be a big part of the video game industry’s future.

"I think that in the context of the games we create and the live services that we offer, collectible digital content is going to play a meaningful part in our future," Wilson said. "So, it's still early to tell, but I think we're in a really good position, and we should expect us to kind of think more innovatively and creatively about that on a go-forward basis," Wilson said while giving his opinion on NFTs and the blockchain.

"As a company, we have been leaders in the creation of digital content that has real collectible value in the embedding of that content as part of live services," he continued. "What we know about collection over time is the collectibility is far more valuable to the collector where the collected item has utility. And I think that in the context of the games that we create and the live services that we offer, collectible digital content is going to play a meaningful part in our future."

EA has yet to officially step into the NFT or blockchain space, but EA job listing descriptions include the words “NFT” and “blockchain,” a massive hint that the firm has plans to explore NFTs and blockchain technology.
