Team17 has said that it has “no plans to acquaint NFTs or play-with acquire NFT mechanics into any of its non mainstream games label titles.”
Team17 has today (January 31) announced that it will send off restricted release NFTs based on the strategic computer game series, Worms.
Team17 is collaborating with Reality Gaming Group to sell the MetaWorms NFT assortment which will include a generative workmanship project called Colonel, a colorful Worm with its own stand and plaque. Reality Gaming employments “side-chain” of the Ethereum mainnet, and that means that each Worm NFT will be utilize a diminished measure of energy and will be “harmless to the ecosystem”.
As per Team17, it plans to give a cut of the returns from the NFT assortment to Coin 4 Planet, a drive that upholds manageability, specifically, its Refeed Farms plan, which upholds food waste-handling worm beds.
“Worms stays a notorious franchise in worldwide gaming with a huge number of fans all over the planet, so we’re truly invigorated and pleased to announce our association with Reality Gaming Group in front of the release of exceptionally restricted version craftsmanship NFTs not long from now,” said Team17 head of publishing Harley Homewood.
Notwithstanding, in another assertion to NME, the engineer said that in spite of the fact that it will be joining forces to create and sell Worms NFTs, it at present has no plans to bring NFTs into any games, saying:

This assertion, wherein the company appears to attempt to distance themselves from the NFTs they authorized a company to deliver utilizing their IP, appears to show that no NFTs are planning to take the leap into the gamess themselves, as we have recently seen with Ubisoft’s contributions in the NFT space. Notwithstanding, Team17 appears to have determined that they will not be adding NFT mechanics into their “independent games label titles” rather than any of their titles.
A few anonymous sources at Team17 have told NME that they didn’t know about the NFT plans until the announcement today.
Recently, Team17 obtained the Hell Let Loose IP from Black Matter Games. The engineer was an outsider publisher of the multiplayer shooter for quite a long time before it purchased the IP for £31 million, with thought of £15 million subject to performance.
