Just as there is excitement around everything that happens in the metaverse, NFTs and cryptocurrencies, there is also disturbing . The closure of Delta Time is one of them. Created by Animoca Brands in 2019, the game announced its definitive closure on March 15 through a Twitter post: “We deeply regret having to announce that F1 Delta Time will cease to operate on March 16, 2022”.
The game worked with the Ethereum cryptocurrency that, when converted into REVV tokens (developed by Animoca), could be used to acquire and redeem NFTs for , drivers and equipment.
In the same tweet it is explained that the reason for the closure is that the license with Formula 1 was not renewed: “While we have not been able to renew our license, we will ensure that the current owners of the F1 Delta Time assets are rewarded. for their loyalty and support.”
In response to complaints from users who invested in NFTs while the game was in operation, the company announced the existence of a plan to compensate them through other blockchain-based car games developed by REVV Motorsport (Animoca’s car games division): “We are taking steps to offer gamers and digital asset owners ways to participate in the broader REVV Motorsport ecosystem, which includes MotoGP, Ignition, Formula E: High Voltage, REVV Racing and Torque Drift.”
