THEME: DIVING DEEPER INTO THE METAVERSE
We are diving deeper into the discussions we started atGamesBeat Summit 2020 on the Metaverse. This is an event that will draw leading thinkers in the game industry and elsewhere on how and when the Metaverse will come. Will it be an accidental thing like the spontaneous community around Animal Crossing, or a deliberate, engineered universe built by companies such as Roblox or Epic Games? The Metaverse seemed like pie-in-the-sky for so many decades, but now, during the pandemic, it feels like we're nearly there. We’ll explore this topic in a variety of dimensions, from both a gaming and transformative technology perspective.
