This Week in the Metaverse EP.12
Unity China Spin-off, Tencent-Ubisoft Stake & Lots of Earnings Reports
On the 12th episode of This Week in the Metaverse, we once again break down three items that we believe are relevant to the future development of the metaverse and on which we can provide unique expertise and insight.
First, we look at a Reuters article that says Unity is considering spinning off its China business into a standalone entity to solidify its market share and make inroads into non-gaming sectors such as manufacturing and local governments for smart city build-outs in China.
Then, we dive into another Reuters report, this time that Tencent is considering increasing its stake in French game maker Ubisoft. We look at what this means for the current state of both companies’ gaming businesses and what implications it has for their future metaverse ambitions.
And lastly, we wrap up some key earnings from the week and look ahead to another jam-packed reporting week. We dive into reports from Activision Blizzard, Electronic Arts, Sony and Nintendo and extrapolate trends that are relevant for the development of the metaverse, then look ahead to what we can expect from Roblox and Take-Two next week.
