According to a new report, a number of Ubisoft developers are furious over the company's decision to include non-fungible tokens (NFTs) in its games.

Kotaku claims to have seen remarks on Ubisoft's internal social media site, MANA, in which employees express their dissatisfaction with the company's recent unveiling of the Ubisoft Quartz platform.

"I still don't really understand the 'issue' being tackled here," one developer reportedly remarked in response to the ideas. Is the (very) unfavorable PR this will generate really worth it?"

"How can you look at private property, speculation, artificial scarcity, and egoism and think, 'yeah, this is nice, I want that, let's put it in art,'" said another staff member who was critical of the platform.

I typically try to stay positive on our announcements," a third member reportedly stated, "but this one is distressing.

Ubisoft Quartz is marketed as "the first platform for playable and energy-efficient NFTs in AAA games," according to Ubisoft. It was released in beta last week alongside Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint on PC, and it allows players to gather 'Digits,' which are collectible in-game vehicles, guns, and equipment.

Digits will be available in limited 'Editions,' each with a set quantity of cosmetic items. "Digits are a new way to experience cosmetic objects," according to Ubisoft. "They combine the fun of playing with AAA grade assets with the excitement of owning NFTs that represent unique, collectible parts of Ubisoft game worlds."

Each Digit has its own serial number, which other players may see in-game, as well as a certificate of ownership. Outside of the Ubisoft ecosystem, players will be able to sell Digits on third-party marketplaces.

Quartz has received significant negative feedback from players, with the announcement trailer on the official Ubisoft North America YouTube channel earning over 95% dislikes.
