Gaming giant Zynga plans to launch NFT-based game this year

Zynga, the online and mobile game developer behind titles like FarmVille and Words With Friends, has plans to get into non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain-based gaming. 

According to Axios, Zynga intends to grow its blockchain team from 15 to up to 100 and launch an NFT-based game by the end of 2022. Zynga’s game will likely tailor the blockchain-based game to the interest of large-scale crypto holders or whales, which may include a yield-focus as opposed to gameplay for entertainment.

Zynga’s plans for blockchain-based gaming come four months after the firm hired its vice president of blockchain gaming Matt Wolf in November of 2021
