SEGA postponed plans to develop blockchain games

The Japanese company SEGA has become cooler about blockchain games. She suspended the development of her own projects and stopped issuing licenses to create blockchain games for her largest IP.

The company did this to avoid “devaluation” of content, said SEGA chief operating officer Shuji Utsumi (Shuji Utsumi) in an interview with Bloomberg. He added that blockchain games usually have boring gameplay, and gamers may not want to play them.

Nevertheless, SEGA will not prohibit third-party studios from making blockchain games based on its less popular franchises like Virtua Fighter. She will also continue to invest in blockchain—related projects – “several hundred million yen” each.
