Well, we didn’t have to wait too long to see how exactly the news of Lego and Epic Games Metaverse would affect the gaming landscape. With the added news of Lego and Sony Invest In Epic Games, the ball is truly rolling.
While obviously that news coming out is not what made these massive $1 billion investments from Sony and Lego’s parent company Kirkbi happen, it is nice to see that Lego and their backers do seem very serious about working with Epic Games. This comes on top of the Sony investment which in itself is already a massive increase in the stake Sony had in Epic Games from the previous two years.,$250 million in 2020 and another $200 million in 2021.
“We are also confident that Epic’s expertise, including their powerful game engine, combined with Sony’s technologies, will accelerate our various efforts,” Kenichiro Yoshido, Sony’s chief executive, said in a statement provided by Epic.
With Unreal Engine 5 being launched last week it only looks up from here. We can’t wait to see what Epic does with this boost in money and hope we can get our hands on something that comes out of it as soon as possible.
