Epic Games continues with its investments in the metaverse, in this case with a substantial part of the 30 million dollars dedicated to the project injected at Hadean, a development team working on an infrastructure capable of supporting the concept of the connected online world to which Fortnite company is thinking.
Marc Petit, VP of Unreal Engine Ecosystem, explained that “Hadean computing will be able to provide the infrastructure that is required to create a scalable metaverse,” said, “This company’s technology is complementary to Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, enabling a huge amount of contemporary users and unlocking new tools for content creators and developers. “
“We are delighted to contribute to Hadean’s growth and look forward to continuing to work together on the foundations of the metaverse.”
Fortnite already has some aspects of the metaverse designed by Epic Games, but it needs to expand
Also in this case, the speech of the VP of Epic Games remains rather vague and there are no details on how this metaverse is structured, nor if it is directly linked to Fortnite as a video game.
We understand how Unreal Engine will also play an important role in laying the technological foundations of this interconnected world, but it is clear that Epic Games is looking for partners specialized in building online platforms, in this case with Hadean. On the other hand, although Fortnite allows you to create special events to participate in – such as the Travis Scott concert – these must be instantiated in order to allow a maximum audience of 100 players in each “room”. The idea of the metaverse, on the other hand, seems to go beyond these limits and allow interaction between many more players at the same time.
Hadean specializes in cloud computing and thanks to this it should provide the scalable solution that Epic Games seeks. It is true that she has worked on Web3 and blockchain projects so far, but it seems that the Fortnite team has plans to use some of these technologies to build something different.
