Following Everywhere’s rather mysterious reveal, which left players with more questions than answers, eagle-eyed fans noticed that the studio is currently hiring for several blockchain-based positions.

These include a senior backend programmer, smart contract developer and a test engineer. This in turn led to speculation that the game could support NFTs or cryptocurrencies.

In a Reddit post addressing the speculation, Build a Rocket Boy said Everywhere is being built on Unreal Engine 5 and not the blockchain, but that the company isn’t dismissing such technology.

“We’re seeing some conversation on NFTs/Cryptos that are prompted by some of our open positions on our website,” a studio representative wrote.

“These are research positions, as we do not like dismissing new technologies only because others haven’t found a solution for them yet. We are building Everywhere on Unreal Engine 5, not the blockchain. We are creating a new world for players, where we come together to play, watch, create, share, and so much more!

“We hope this helps clarify some of the speculations around this topic.”
