Team17 announcing an end to the MetaWorms NFT project

Two days after the announcement of Team17 officially entering the NFT business, the company decided to end the MetaWorms NFT project. On Tuesday, in an official press release, the company stated the following:

Team17 is today announcing an end to the MetaWorms NFT project. We have listened to our teamsters, development partners, and our games’ communities, and the concerns they’ve expressed, and have therefore taken the decision to step back from the NFT space.


The decision comes after a backlash from its developers, such as Playtonic Games and AGGRO Crag Games, who have condemned Team 17’s decision to produce and engage with NFTs (non-fungible tokens).

Previously, Team17, together with Reality Gaming Group, decided to collaborate on these NFT collectibles named MetaWorms. They were planned to come in as a unique and generative artwork that will depict content from the Worms franchise, designed to be high quality and low energy consuming collectibles. The critics were too harsh to continue with the project, resulting in its termination in a record time.

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
