Director of It Takes Two says he’d rather be shot than add NFTs in his games

A hot potato: There are few subjects that get people’s blood boiling like the addition of non-fungible tokens to games. Despite the fact that the majority of people are against this practice, many within the industry don’t care about it and will continue to implement their schemes.
