Metaverse - Is This The Unreal Life? Is This Just Fantasy?

The race to create and/or be a part of the metaverse is hotting up, despite the ambiguity and vagueness of it all. Creator of the hugely successful Fortnite, Epic Games does not want to miss out and is working their way towards it. With Unreal Engine becoming more ubiquitous than ever in the industry and beyond, and Fortnite continuing to break new grounds and boundaries, does Epic Games have the advantage compared to others? We speak to Quentin Staes-Polet, Managing Director for Unreal Engine at Epic Games for EMEA, India and South East Asia to hear what their game plan is for the metaverse.
