Worms-themed NFTs are not popular with fans and developers.
The answer to Team17 and its intention to accomplish NFT based on his iconic series Worms it was quick and not at all positive.
Several studios and fans have spoken out against the company’s decision to start selling NFTs, including Playtonic Games, Ghost Town Games, and Aggro Crab studios. All of these studios have collaborated with Team17, and Aggros Crab specifically said he will no longer work with the company unless he undoes his decision.
The backlash has led to a turnaround, as Team17 has announced that it will end its project MetaWorms NFT. The company writes that it has “listened to our Teamsters, development partners and our game communities“and decided to take a step back.
Team17 is today announcing an end to the MetaWorms NFT project.
We have listened to our Teamsters, development partners, and our games? , and the concerns they? ve expressed, and have therefore taken the decision to step back from the NFT space.

NFTs continue to be a burning issue, with a clear gap between consumer opinion and corporate leadership.
Despite the public outcry against NFTs, many companies continue to push the idea forward, for example Ubisoft is moving forward with its Project Quartz.
