Epic Games Store Will ‘Welcome’ NFT Games

Epic Games and its CEO Tim Sweeney are open to letting games that use blockchain technology and NFTs onto its PC store, even as NFTs continues to be criticized for being a giant, planet-burning scam filled with grifters. This follows Valve’s decision to remove and ban all games that utilize NFT Podcast and blockchain technology. It also follows earlier statements from Epic’s CEO, which said Epic wouldn’t touch NFTs due to scams.

Epic Games told The Verge that, although there might be some limitations, it is open to working with devs who want to use blockchain technology, NFTs, and cryptocurrencies in games that could appear on the publisher’s digital storefront.

Epic CEO Tim Sweeney tweeted a statement following The Verge’s publication of a story about his company’s interest in allowing NFT tech on its storefront, stating that the “Epic Games Store will welcome games that make use of blockchain tech provided they follow the relevant laws, disclose their terms, and are age-rated by an appropriate group.”
