A new study in the United Kingdom conducted by blockchain platform Stratis and supervised by insight organization Opinion implies that most video game developers are aware of the increasing demand for blockchain, play-to-earn, and NFT-based games, and are already looking to incorporate such elements into their upcoming titles.

As per the survey results, which had 197 video game developers operating in the United Kingdom and the United States, 58% of the respondents admitted to the fact that they are already incorporating blockchain technology. 47% of the same, on the other hand, are already incorporating NFT elements. Furthermore, 72% of the respondents are currently contemplating whether or not their upcoming games should have blockchain or NFT concepts. In comparison, 56% aims to introduce the new tech within the following year.

As for the reason why blockchain technology and the play-to-earn model may prove beneficial for the video game industry, 61% of respondents believe that such elements enable a more exciting gameplay experience, while 55% argue that the incorporation of real-world money is what keeps players coming back for more.

According to Stratis CEO Chris Trew, the blockchain platform conducted this particular research to confirm their growing assumption that blockchain and NFT are indeed the future of the video game industry.  Trew adds that they are now expecting more AAA studios to get involved with such technologies and concepts within the next year or so. However, before that, a slew of indie games doing the same would flood the market.
