S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2 NFT Plans Nuked

After the Internet melted down over the announcement of plans to add blockchain elements to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2: Heart of Chernobyl, GSC Game World tweets this plan has been scrapped. Presumably the NFTs planned for the shooter sequel will be consigned to some sort of exclusion zone:
Dear STALKERS,

We hear you.

Based on the feedback we received, we've made a decision to cancel anything NFT related in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. 2.

The interests of our fans and players are the top priority for the team. We're making this game for you to enjoy — whatever the cost is. If you care, we care too.

With love,

GSC Game World Team.
