Electronic Arts, one of the biggest game publishers in the world, has recently foreseen that Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are the future of the gaming industry.
Over the last few months, the popularity of NFTs has increased vastly. As mass adoption has started for blockchain technology and digital assets, the NFT marketplace may become one of the most important sectors of investing in the future.
Andrew Wilson, the CEO of Electronic Arts (EA), has implied that NFTs are slowly changing the gaming industry. With NFTs being the pillar of future ownership, play-to-earn games are going to boom.
EA has not attempted to integrate such technology in their games yet, but it may soon, as Wilson has hinted at possible blockchain implementation for EA.

Axie Infinity has successfully showcased how successful play-to-earn games can be once they are successfully implemented. Such games entail digital assets such as NFTs to play, where the winners would win additional NFTs that can be quite profitable.
Andrew Wilson has also stated that it is early to determine how EA is going to move to a blockchain-based approach, but he believes that the company is in a favourable position to do so in the future.
But EA is not the only gaming company that aims to adapt itself in the NFT industry. Ubisoft, another very successful game publisher, also intends to adopt blockchain in gaming.
